They may be partnered with stars, but the Dancing with the Stars pros are celebrities in and of themselves. They’ve been gracing our TV screens for over 27 seasons, so we all probably have our favorite DWTS pros at this point. 

Below you’ll find a Dancing with the Stars pros list, featuring all of the amazing dancers you’ve come to know and love. Derek Hough is one of the original DWTS pros, and has won a whopping six times. But you’ll find former DWTS pros on this list as well. Sharna Burgess and Keo Motsepe are two of the former Dancing with the Stars pros that you’ll find on this list.
