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 26th 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 as of June 2017 she welcomed her second child, Leia Josephine, into the world.Jen Lowery/SilverHub/REX/Shutterstock
