Here Are Your Season 29 'Dancing with the Stars' Pros

Updated: Aug 24


Updated: August 21


The Season 29 Dancing with the Stars season is starting to take shape now that we know the pros this year. The roster provided a few surprises with the return of Sharna Burgess after a season off and the addition of former troupe member Britt Stewart, who becomes the first Black female pro in the show's history. And on Monday, Aug. 24, Good Morning America will announce the 15th pro for the season, the return of Artem Chigvintsev. Two of the pros are out on maternity leave this season — Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson.


Most of the pros were announced on GMA on Aug. 18 to drum up some excitement for a season that is going to look very different from the prior 28 seasons. The show will premiere on Monday, Sept. 14.
