Dancing with the Stars 24: Pro Tony Dovolani Won’t Be Competing

Bad news for Tony Dovolani fans. The Dancing with the Stars pro will be sitting out season 24. The dancer made the announcement on Friday via his Instagram account.

Dovolani will be pursuing other projects, including touring, teaching and developing his dance studio:

I wanted my fans to hear it from me first. I will not be on Dancing With The Stars this season, season 24.

While I will miss the show and interacting with our wonderful audiences, both at home and in the ballroom, I will continue to focus on growing my Dance With Me USA studios and teaching. I will also be traveling across the country performing and making personal appearances.

I will be hosting my second annual Tony Dovolani Foundation: Golf For Special Needs Children tournament on July 14. I’m honored to be a member of the PGA’s Player and Coaching Development Committee and to be contributing to the future of the professional game of golf.

The Dancing with the Stars Season 24 cast will be announced on March 1. Celebrities who have reportedly signed on include Mr. T and Simone Biles, a member of Fifth Harmony, Nancy Kerrigan and Nick Viall.

New parents Maks Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd announced their return to the upcoming DWTS season on Good Morning America earlier this week.
