How old is alex on dancing with the stars
Every 'Dancing With the Stars' Pro: Where Are They Now?
Mirrorball champs or not, Dancing With the Stars has featured some impeccable professional dancers in the years since the ABC competition series premiered in 2005. Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are among the talent who have lit up the ballroom.
Some of the show’s stars went on to achieve major success in their careers while others opted to build thriving personal lives. Still, some maintain their roles as pros year after year, returning to the beloved job with their as-close-as-family castmates and vying once again for the title.
Julianne Hough, for one, is perhaps one of the biggest names to come out of the show. The actress won season 4 — her first as a pro — and season 5 with partners Apolo Anton Ohno and Hélio Castroneves, respectively. She left after season 8 to pursue other goals but returned as a judge for seasons 19 through 24 (with the exception of 22).
“Look, never say never because you never know what one day will be from the next,” Julianne told Us Weekly in August 2019 of whether she would return to Dancing With the Stars. “But I owe my career to that show! I was 18 and they brought me back in two different ways. I was a dancer, I was a judge and I’m so happy for everything that’s going on there.”
Meanwhile, some of the show’s stars leaned on each other when it came to making baby plans. “A lot of them have come to me because … they liked how I scheduled [my pregnancy] and how I could get back to work,” Peta Murgatroyd revealed exclusively to Us in October 2019. “I think women nowadays definitely are wanting to work still and not just be a stay-at-home mom. They still want to have careers, they still want to be out there being successful.”
The New Zealand native predicted “a massive baby boom” among the cast at the time. “I think a lot of them are going to do it really soon,” she explained. “They’re all kind of on the verge of, ‘Yes, let’s do it now,’ or, ‘Let’s wait another six months.’”
Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson both sat out season 29 in 2020 while expecting. The Catch 21 star opened up in February 2021 about her desire to return to the ballroom.
“That’s the goal,” Carson exclusively told Us. “That’s what I’m working toward. That’s in the plans for now. So if anything changes, we’ll just go with it, but that is in our sights for right now.”
Ahead of the premiere of season 30 in September 2021, both Arnold and Carson were announced as returning pros.

Dancing With The Stars Pro Dancers, Then And Now
Louis van Amstel
Louis danced his way onto the scene in 2005 for season one of DWTS. He competed with Bachelorette star Trista Sutter, who was eliminated the very first week. Louis danced for the first three seasons, served as a choreographer for seasons 4 and 5, and continued to be involved in the show until he took a five-season hiatus at season 16. Throughout his time on the show, Louis never won and only made it to the finals once with Kelly Osbourne. His last appearance was season 21 in the fall of 2015, but he didn’t hang up his dancing shoes: He is making his DWTS comeback this season with actress Cheryl Ladd.
Edyta is one-half of an OG DWTS couple. She married Alec Mazo, who is also her dance partner, in 2007 — two years after her debut on the first season. Edyta was a mainstay on the show for the first 10 seasons, then came back for the athletes-only season in 2016. Now, at least according to Instagram, it seems like she spends most of her time with her two children.
Alec appeared on five seasons total, and won the very first season of the show with partner Kelly Monaco. He earned his MBA from Stanford University and now operates a production company.
Nick competed in seasons 2 and 3 with Tatum O’Neal and Vivica A. Fox, respectively. He has been dancing since 1972, but now serves as a consultant.
Maks has participated in a whopping 17 seasons of Dancing With The Stars, winning season 18 with ice dancer Meryl Davis. His longest uninterrupted run on the show was from seasons 7 through 15, and his last appearance was with Vanessa Lachey on season 25. Since then, he married fellow pro Peta Murgatroyd, with whom he has a son, and he’s taking a break from the show to focus on his family.
Tony made his first appearance on season 2 and was on the show for 21 consecutive seasons. He won the All-Stars season with reality TV star Melissa Rycroft — and reality TV is one of the reasons he left the show. On a 2018 episode of Hollywood Life’s podcast, Tony revealed he cut ties with the competition series because the antics of the reality TV personalities interfered with his teaching. Now, he is a teacher for Fred Astaire Dance Studios.
Anna competed in 11 seasons between 2006 and 2015. She finished second twice with athletes Jerry Rice and Evan Lysacek. Anna took a break during seasons 16 through 20 because she was going through a divorce with pro Jonathan Roberts and starting a family with Nevin Millan. Now, Anna spends her time traveling around the country as a dance instructor.
Cheryl holds the record for the most appearances on DWTS with an impressive 24 seasons. She started off strong, winning her first two seasons in 2006 and 2007 with partners Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith. She has taken a few short breaks from the show, but returned for season 28 with Ray Lewis, who was forced to quit after tearing tendons in his foot, as well as season 29 with AJ McLean. She's making her big comeback this year with partner Sam Champion.
Elena was only around for seasons 3 and 4 of DWTS in 2006 and 2007. Before coming on the show, she partnered with Tony and Maksim for world competitions. Now, Elena teaches dance classes.
Jesse only participated on season 3 of DWTS in 2006. His partner was former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, and they were the second pair to be eliminated. Jesse owns a Fred Astaire dance studio in Long Grove, Illinois, but he’s also a realtor and businessman.
Before heading to American DWTS, Kym appeared on the first three seasons of the Australian version. Kym has danced on 15 seasons since 2006, and she's won twice: with Donny Osmond on season 9 and Hines Ward on season 12. After marrying her season 20 partner, Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec, Kym hung up her dancing shoes to focus on raising their twins.
Karina made her DWTS debut on season 3 in 2006, and she came in second with then-boyfriend Mario Lopez. While Karina was taking season 20 off, she released her book, We're Just Not That Into You: Dating Disasters from the Trenches. She still competes and hasn’t ruled out a return to the reality competition show.
Can you believe Julianne only competed in five seasons?! In her brief stint, she won back-to-back seasons with Helio Castroneves and Apolo Anton Ohno. Since then, she's released music and had a successful acting career in movies such as Burlesque, Footloose, and Safe Haven. She also left a lasting impression on DWTS, returning to the show as a judge for five more seasons.
In 19 seasons on DWTS, Mark won with Olympians Kristi Yamaguchi on season 6 and Shawn Johnson on season 8. He took a break during seasons 23 and 24 to play Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys on Broadway. To say fans were excited to learn about his long-awaited return to the ballroom is an understatement. He'll be competing on season 31 with TikTok star Charli D'Amelio.
Julianne’s older brother Derek joined the DWTS cast in 2005. Derek holds the record for winning the most Mirror Ball Trophies with six: Brooke Burke (season 7), Nicole Scherzinger (season 10), Jennifer Grey (season 11), Kellie Pickler (season 16), Amber Riley (season 17), and Bindi Irwin (season 21). After 17 seasons on the show, Derek called it quits in 2016. But now, he's back as a judge.
Fabian was the only new pro on season 6 in 2008. He was paired with actress Marlee Matlin for his first and last season on the show. Fabian owns a Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Birmingham.
Lacey was on six seasons of DWTS starting with season 7 in 2008. She placed second with Disney Channel star Kyle Massey on season 11. Lacey still dances, and keeps her 173,000 followers on Instagram updated on her life.
Inna competed in season 7 with partner Ted McGinley, and landed in 12th place. Since her stint on DWTS, she's continued to work in the dance industry, as a choreographer, dance coach, and ballroom adjudicator.
Dmitry competed on three seasons of DWTS: 8, 9, and 12. He placed second with singer/songwriter and actress Mya on season 9. The So You Think You Can Dance competitor still dances and teaches.
Chelsie participated in seven seasons of DWTS, with her first being in 2009 for season 8. Chelsie now operates Dance Elevated, a company that works to change dancers' perceptions of themselves in a positive way.
Anna served as a professional dancer for one season of DWTS, season 9. She was paired with football player Michael Irvin, and the pair placed seventh. Anna is still a competitive ballroom dancer, and spends most of her time in NYC.
Damian only stuck around for one season of DWTS when he was paired with Pamela Anderson for season 10 in 2010. After that, he went to DWTS Australia, where he danced with Russell Crowe’s ex-wife Danielle Spencer. Now, it seems Damian enjoys his time in L.A.
Peta has participated in 13 seasons of DWTS, with her first being in 2011 for season 13. She's had a couple seasons off: She didn’t compete in season 21 because of an injury; she was absent during season 23 while she was expecting her first child; and she took a two-season hiatus to focus on her family with husband Maksim. But now, Peta is back for season 31 with partner Jason Lewis.
Val has appeared on over 15 seasons of DWTS, with his first being in 2011 for season 13. Maks' younger brother wasn’t on the 26th season because he was too busy with his MVP Confidential tour with his brother and sister-in-law Peta. Val married fellow pro Jenna Johnson in April 2019. For season 31, Val will be dancing with Bachelorette star Gabby Windey.
Jenna waltzed onto the show in 2016, with her first season being the 23rd. She wasn’t on the 24th or 25th seasons, but made her official return for season 26. In season 29, she scored second place with partner Nev Schulman.

Lindsay is another So You Think You Can Dance competitor-turned-DWTS pro. She joined in 2013 for season 16 and was coupled with boxer Victor Ortiz. She served as a troupe member from season 17 through 20 and was bumped back up to a pro for season 21. In her nine seasons, Lindsay won season 25 with singer and actor Jordan Fisher.
Sharna was a fan favorite since her debut in spring 2013 for season 16. She has been a constant for 13 seasons, but that all changed for season 28. After a controversial win with radio host Bobby Bones — he had the lowest average score of any champion — Sharna was not asked to be a pro or participate in the troupe for season 28.
She said on Instagram at the time that "there are things coming into my world that I’m excited to dive into now that I have time." (Sharna had been serving as a judge on Dancing With the Stars Australia.)
The pro returned for season 29, and seemed pretty happy to be back. At the time, she praised then-partner Jesse Metcalfe on Instagram. "I’ve loved getting to know you the last week and can’t wait for everyone else to get to know how awesome you are," she said. She's sitting out of season 31 after welcoming son Zane in June 2022.
Tyne was only around for one season of DWTS. She was partnered with Bill Nye for season 17 in 2013, but they were the second pair eliminated. Tyne has shifted her focus to acting, and she has a slew of guest credits on TV shows to her name.
Sasha has been back and forth from the DWTS troupe to pro status since season 14. He's been back as a pro for the last few seasons, and will be returning for season 31 with partner Selma Blair.
Emma joined DWTS in fall 2013 for season 17. She has participated in 12 seasons, securing a win with running back Rashad Jennings during season 24. Emma didn’t appear on season 22 for seemingly no reason at all, and fans were quite upset with the decision to at least not put her in the troupe. She'll be back for season 31 with partner Trevor Donovan.
Henry stepped onto DWTS for season 18 in spring 2014. The pro danced with long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, but they were the first couple eliminated.

Witney has competed in 11 consecutive seasons of DWTS, with her first being season 18 in 2014. In her second season on the show, Witney and partner Alfonso Ribeiro took home the Mirrorball Trophy. She welcomed her first child with husband Carson McAllister in January 2021.

Keo participated in group dances in season 28, and returned as a pro for season 29 with his partner, the late Anne Heche.
The So You Think You Can Dance contestant made her way to the ballroom for season 19 of DWTS in 2014.

She and tWitch now share three children together.
Season 19 in 2014 marked Artem’s first appearance on DWTS. Since then, his most notable partner is his now-wife Nikki Bella, who he was paired with for season 25. Artem took a brief break from DWTS, but he's now back in action for season 31 with Heidi D'Amelio.
Brandon started appearing on the show in 2018. He placed 9th with Jeannie Mai on season 29, who had to withdraw from the competition due to a medical issue. For season 31, he'll be dancing with singer Jordin Sparks.
Alan danced his way onto the scene in 2017 for season 25. During season 27, he started dating his celeb partner, model Alexis Ren. He and Bachelorette Hannah Brown won the Mirrorball Trophy in season 28. Bersten is returning in season 31 with partner Jessie James Decker.
Pasha made his DWTS debut on season 28, joining the show at the same time as wife Daniella Karagach, who's a member of the troupe. He was paired with The Office star Kate Flannery on his first go-around, and later danced with Carole Baskin from Netflix's Tiger King for season 29. For season 31, he's partnered with Teresa Giudice.
After ending season 4 in 10th place with partner Shandi Finnessey, Brian moved on from the show. Over the years, he's worked as a director and dance teacher.
Britt made history as DWTS’s first-ever Black female pro. But she was on the troupe for five seasons and also went on tour with the show before becoming a pro in season 29, where she made it all the way to the semifinals with celeb partner Johnny Weir.

Dancing with the stars and live dumbbells. Who trains football players remotely
Never before has a footballer spent so much time with his family as he does these days. And they are happy! And they are ready for anything, just to help their husband, dad, boyfriend keep their fighting shape.

A strong home front is not Van Dijk, Piqué or Ter Stegen behind your back. This is family. For her sake, these guys are killed in training and in games, they carry their rather big salaries to her, they celebrate victories with her and find solace in her face in the black days of defeats. And now, when they themselves are in the rear by the will of the coronavirus, the family (in the broad sense, the stamp in the passport is not the main thing here) has to put up with the fact that the common house has been temporarily turned into a training base.
Group training is not allowed. Together with one of the teammates - too. Don't even try to kick the ball with your neighbors: quarantine. And you need to train - someday all this horror will end. And it is necessary to meet liberation not just in shape, but in super shape - it is possible that Boxing Day will come for the entire football world. Who will help? Of course, family!
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already set a task for the wives and girlfriends of the Manchester United players:
— Most of the players today have good houses, with gardens, lawns — I hope their ladies are able to complete a few crosses and crosses to help the guys work on shots on goal.
Seriously? If you look at how Paul Pogba's wife tried to juggle toilet paper with him, doubts prevail...
Nemanja Matic did not torture his wife Alexandra with complex technical exercises, but he attracted all three children to work on "physics" in full. What they are only happy about - not so often dad is at home.
Children also enjoy helping Chelsea midfielder Willian in training. Even though they are girls, they are also Brazilians, and even the daughters of a football player, so the ball is more familiar to them than dolls. “Your older one will be smarter than Kepa,” one of Willian’s Instagram followers remarked, referring to goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, whom Chelsea fans dream of getting rid of.
Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has no children yet. But his girlfriend Perrie Edwards is a pop star, a member of the trendy British girl group Little Mix. Why not David Beckham with Victoria Adams! Only Becks was not seen dancing as cool as Ox.
With Perry, Alex doesn't seem to need any fitness coach. And Jürgen Klopp (and he is closely watching what his players are doing) is happy:
- For me, the main thing is that the guys are in a good mood. By the way, I tried to repeat what Ox does with his girlfriend. And by the way, it didn't turn out so bad!
Klopp, however, didn’t upload footage of his own dance exercises to the network… in the case of Manchester City midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko.
