12 Former Dancing With The Stars Pros: Where Are They Now?
Dancing with the Stars has been around for a very long time! The ABC reality dance competition series premiered back in 2005 and is now onto the 24th season! Over the past 12 years, we’ve seen a lot of contestants come and go, but also dancing pros! Aside from the core group of dancers, DWTS tends to have a revolving door and it’s probably because of its demanding schedule. Many pros take a short hiatus once in a while, but there’s also few who seemed to have disappeared entirely! Here’s a look back at 12 former Dancing with the Stars pros to see where they are now!
12. Edyta Sliwinska
This Polish ballroom dancer was a pro on Dancing with the Stars for the first 10 seasons of the show. During her time on the show she married fellow pro, Alec Mazo in 2007, but left the show in 2010. The DWTS couple announced they were expecting their first child and in 2014 welcomed a son, Michael. She spent most of her time away from the show raising their child, but has participated in Dancing Pros Live and has also starred in and produced Dance Temptation. After an 11 season hiatus she returned to DWTS in 2016 for season 22 and was partnered with journalist Geraldo Rivera. Unfortunately, it was a short return for her as the two were eliminated on Week 2 of the competition. She has not been back since and recently announced she is expecting her second child due in June 2017!
11. Ashly Delgrosso
Ashly Delgrosso, also commonly known as Ashly Costa, starred on the first three seasons of Dancing with the Stars, and returned for season 10 after a long hiatus. She left the show in 2006 after season 3, moved to Massachusetts with her then-boyfriend Michael Costa, a field producer for DWTS. The couple got married and welcomed their first child in 2007 and another in 2009. She returned for her fourth season in 2010 after a long hiatus and was paired with astronaut, Buzz Aldrin. The two made it to 10th place before they were eliminated. She hasn’t returned back to the show since, but instead continued growing her family with Michael. She gave birth to a daughter, Naomi, in 2011 and another son, Samuel in December 2014.
