One of the best things about Dancing With the Stars is its consistency. Throughout 16 seasons, the judges, the host, and many of the pro dancers have remained the same. However, heading into Season 17, there has already been quite a shakeup.

On the heels of reports that some (or all!) of the judges are departing, a pro just tweeted that a cast member is leaving the show!

Tristan MacManus revealed on June 2 that troupe dancer Emma Slater is leaving to be on BBC show Strictly Come Dancing this fall as a pro dancer. He tweeted, "Just heard the news that one of our best Mates @EmmaSlater will be a pro on @bbcstrictly next season its a shame we missed out on her! PROUD."

Though we’re sad to see her go, it sounds like an exciting opportunity! We nearly had a heart attack when we read it, worried that he was departing with her. But who knows — maybe she’ll be hired as a DWTS pro for Season 18 and return to the ballroom!

Are you bummed that Emma is leaving the show? Sound off below!
