Sharna Burgess and Lindsay Arnold not returning to ‘DWTS’ Season 31 as pros
Sharna Burgess and Lindsay Arnold will not be competing as pros in the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars.”
Burgess, who gave birth to son Zane on June 28, was the first one to open up about her decision via Instagram Story on Wednesday.
“Hi, I have some news that I have to tell you guys, because I keep getting so many DMs about it,” Burgess, 37, began.
“I, after long conversations and lots of thinking and really trying to sit with what was right …
I have made the really hard decision to not to do the season this year of ‘Dancing With the Stars.’
There has been a list that was released saying that I would be a pro and I won’t be.”
Burgess clarified, however, that she will still “be there in some capacity,” telling fans, “We’re still talking about that.”
The dancer noted that while her body is “at 100 percent capacity” and “fit, strong and so ready to dance” just two months after giving birth
the time commitment is what held her back from jumping back onto the dance floor. “I was not ready to spend, at minimum, 10 hours a day away from Zane,” she explained.
