Cheryl Burke has danced for the ultimate time on the Disney+ unique collection Dancing With the Stars.
The departing professional dancer took to Instagram with a touching message to her former dance companions.
“To all of my dance partners who each has played a pivotal role in my life, THANK YOU,” she wrote on Instagram over the weekend.
“Thank you for the life classes, for trusting me along with your vulnerability, and for ALWAYS giving every dance your all,” Burk, who starred in 26 seasons, wrote.
“Though there have been instances of blood, sweat, and tears, I can confidently say that no matter all of it, not a single one has ever let me down.”
Burke continued, “Even if ‘dance mom’ Cheryl decided to take over rehearsal at times, ha, you knew that it came from a loving place so thank you again for trusting me, allowing me to mold you into dancers, and for the amazing ride that I’ll never forget. LOVE TO YOU ALL!”
Burke introduced her intention to exit the collection earlier this month.
At the time, it was reported that the professional dancer was focused on taking a seat with the judges in after Len Goodman vacated his seat.
“I am excited about the idea of evolving, about being challenged in new ways, having the ability to expand my commitment to mental health advocacy, focusing on my new found love for podcasting, & I’m ready to face the uncertainty (though it’s scary as sh**) of what the future holds – I do have a few things up my sleeves though, so don’t worry,” she shared on Instagram when she revealed the information of her departure.
Dancing With the Stars has already been renewed for Season 32 on Disney+.
A call on the judging panel and professional lineup will not be anticipated to be made till subsequent yr, nearer to the premiere date.
