It would be great to say Lacey was returning to DWTS to stay, but it looks like the pro is just choreographing a dance for Season 17, Week 6, along with her brother Benji.
On October 14, Lacey tweeted, "Excited to start choreographing with @BenjiSchwimmer tonight for #DWTS (airing next week)."
The next day, pro Peta Murgatroyd tweeted, "Good morning to u all! Early pro rehearsals with the lovely @LaceySchwimmer and Benji :))" and Lacey replied, "Great job!"
Tyne Stecklein added, "Great rehearsal for next weeks opening number choreographed by @LaceySchwimmer and @BenjiSchwimmer!!! Gonna be an awesome number!!! #DWTS."
It's not clear if Lacey and Benji, who won So You Think You Can Dance Season 2, will be part of the number or if they just choreographed it. At the very least, they should wave from the audience, right? Hopefully they do more than that.
We haven't seen Lacey compete since she danced with Chaz Bono on Season 13. But she's still a busy lady, and you can check the new costumes she's designed at Discount Dance Supply.
Do you miss Lacey, too? Do you think she can be convinced to come back to DWTS on a regular basis — and maybe even compete on Season 18? Sound off below!
