With Dancing With the Stars Season 16's conclusion last week, fans are eagerly beginning to look towards the show's future. And you know what that means: it's time for another round of "will my favorite pro quit?" While it's not unheard of for popular pro dancers to catapult themselves on to bigger things (miss you, Julianne Hough!), it sounds like fans of Cheryl Burke can relax.
Cheryl, who has been part of the show since Season 2, is one of the pros fans are most worried will leave. After all, she has an almost absurd number of seasons under her belt. However, if the thought of Cheryl leaving sends you into a ballroom funk, you can chillax: the dancer told Parade that "as long as Dancing With the Stars wants to have me, I'll be there."
Whew. Of course, Cheryl made sure to stress that she can only speak for herself. So, don't take her statement to mean anything either way about the rumors that Derek Hough and potentially even Mark Ballas want out.
Would you miss Cheryl if she left the show? Sound off in the comments below!
