Dancing with the Stars plans to announce its full celebrity lineup on Wednesday on Good Morning America, but the reality competition series recently announced its full lineup of pros.

The 15 dancers include eight women and seven men. There is one more female dancer, that does not mean there will be more male stars this season in Dancing with the Stars Season 30.

There will be seven male pros dancing with seven female celebrities and seven female pros dancing with seven male celebrities. For the first time in DWTS history, there will be a same-sex couple, and the eighth female pro will dance with JoJo Siwa.

Here is who is competing this season as pros.

The female pros on DWTS Season 30

The returning female DWTS pros include Britt Stewart, Cheryl Burke, Daniella Karagach, Emma Slater, Jenna Johnson, and Sharna Burgess. Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson join them.
