The Dancing with the Stars season 25 celebrities are quickly being revealed and fans of the show are excited to find out which professional dancers will be paired up with the new contestants. If you want to know which celebrities will be on the Dancing with the Stars season 25 cast, here’s the scoop when the announcement will be made!
The Dancing with the Stars 2017 premiere date is Monday, September 18th and 8 p.m. EST, and you can tap your feet along when the show airs on ABC. The official announcement of the entire cast will be revealed on September 6th, on Good Morning America. For now, fans can hear all about the professional dancers who will be performing this season. These talented people will return to compete with their celebrity partners for the Mirror Ball Trophy!
Countdown to the Premiere
There are just 25 more days until the DWTS 2017 premiere, and there are many exciting reveals that are coming in the days ahead. Co-host Tom Bergeron is a busy man, but every time Dancing with the Stars time gets closer, he gets more excited. “It’s so much fun to watch these people, who you may know from other venues and other careers, come into our ballroom,” he said. “And then with all the energy and passion and commitment that they’ve given into either their sports or music or acting careers, they put it into learning how to dance.” Bergeron believes the show connects so deeply with fans because it’s live. “I think that is one of the key elements that make it work. Watching people come into a situation where they’re out of their element, where they’re uncomfortable and where there’s a live camera certainly shows more than a taped show would,” he said. “And I think, too, there’s a sense of camaraderie and a sense of humor in the show that is endearing. All those things are part of the stew that makes it work.”
Professional Dancer List
Viewers get ready, because ahead of the DWTS season 25 premiere, there will be exclusive interviews, fun memories from past seasons, and new details about what fans will expect from this new season. Mark Ballas has been away for two seasons, but now he’s back in the ballroom! He is one of the 12 pro dancers that were announced to compete on this milestone season. “Doing Broadway was amazing, but you’re singing someone else’s words and doing someone else’s choreography and it’s the same every night. Here you get to do your own thing and change it up every week,” he said about returning to the show. “The timing really worked out.”
The rest of the Dancing with the Stars 2017 stars include Peta Murgatroyd, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Emma Slater, Gleb Savchenko, Keo Motsepe, Sharna Burgess, Val Chmerkovskiy, Lindsay Arnold, Artem Chigvintsev, Witney Carson, and Alan Bersten.
