Part of the point of the Dancing With the Stars pro troupe — beyond providing more great dancers to watch during the results show — is to prepare dancers to potentially become competing pros in the future. So far, the system has worked out well; two of the most popular new pros from the last few years, Tristan MacManus and Sharna Burgess, started out in the troupe. So chances are that we'll see some more promotions come Season 17, especially because we already know of several DWTS regulars who won't be back.
Of course, we've gotten to know the troupe members over seasons. They've danced in the results shows and in opening numbers, they've taken part in trio dances — you get the idea. So we're wondering: Assuming the Dancing With the Stars Powers That Be do draw some new pros from the troupe this season, who are you hoping to see?
Right now, it looks like the biggest need will be on the female pro side of things, but we also know very little about which male pros will or won't be returning, so it's possible that some male troupe members could get promoted, too. So we've listed all of the troupe members in this poll — vote for your fave, and then defend them in the comments below!
