‘Dancing With the Stars’ pro wants to judge next season, not dance

“Dancing With the Stars” professional dancer Cheryl Burke hopes to land another position in the ballroom dance competition next season.

The 38-year-old professional dancer has been on the show since season two of the competition and she has been open about the possibility of retiring in the future and moving on to another position on the show, although those positions are not. available to her.

Now, amid her season 31 elimination of the show, Burke is once again asking for a spot elsewhere on “Dancing With the Stars.”

After being eliminated from season 31, Burke shared her hopes for next season with ET Online.

“It will probably be my last season,” she told the Outer. “Give me another job on the show. There are many different titles, but I’ve had the same one since 2006… Hopefully it’s within this family – if not, that’s fine too – but like everyone else, you know, you like being promoted.”

Burke said she thinks there could be room for her on the panel, even if that means there are a total of five judges now that there are no commercials.

“Just say there’s only one woman up there — that’s my sister,” Burke told the outlet, talking about Carrie Ann Inaba. “So let’s go, sister of another gentleman!”

Right now, “Dancing With the Stars” is hosted by Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro, but Burke would be open to joining that group.

In a new interview with Us Weekly, Burke revealed what she wants to do in the competition’s reality show in the future.

“I hope to be a judge or co-host on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ in the near future,” Burke told the outlet.

Burke would like to retire at some point because she feels like she’s getting old to become a professional ballroom dancer, she shared with Elizabeth Vargas, a former ABC News Anchor on the “Heart of the Matter” podcast. The podcast is part of a Partnership to End Addiction, which Burke is passionate about. The interview took place in 2021 and Burke has since embarked on her next season in “Dancing With the Stars.”

“I’ve had personal issues and everything was so insecure. I’m 37, am I going…” Burke shared. “That makes no sense, and this is in October. But that question mark of how long can I live as a dancer? Let’s to be honest, a lot of women are retiring in their early 30s. This is not a sport you could keep up forever, especially not as a woman, nor do I want to be that person who looks like an old granny here who barely lifts her leg .”

She also said that there are a lot of young women entering the field, which can sometimes do a song on her ego.

“But I still don’t know, I have so many question marks. And again, that’s how scary it is to live in uncertainty,” she said.
