12 Former Dancing With The Stars Pros: Where Are They Now?
10. Chelsie Hightower
Chelsie Hightower joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars as a pro in season 8 and appeared in every consecutive season after that up until season 15 except for season 13. She did not return for season 16 and has not been seen on the competition dance show since 2011. So what has Hightower been up to since? She moved back to Utah where she practices her faith regularly and has continued to dance on the touring show, Dancing Pros Live, alongside other DWTS alumni like Edyta Slinwinska and Karina Smirnoff on Shall We Dance On Ice.
9. Tristan MacManus
Irish dancer Tristan MacManus appeared on Dancing with the Stars from season 13 to 17. He had first appeared on the show as part of the dance troupe in season 12 and was offered the coveted position as a pro the following season. His last season on the show was in 2013 when he was paired with Valerie Harper. The two didn’t perform well and were eliminated in Week 3. After he left the show, MacManus joined the British edition of DWTS, Strictly Come Dancing, as a professional dancer in the 12th series. In March 2016 it was confirmed that he quit the show and wouldn’t be returning for the 14th series.
