Lindsay Arnold, a professional dancer on "Dancing With the Stars," has said she won't be participating in the TV program's season 31.
The ballerina clarified that she is concentrating on her family at this time in a lengthy Instagram message on Wednesday.
"Ultimately I have chosen what I feel is best for myself and my family," she wrote in her announcement.
DWTS has been a part of my life for more than ten years, and when I say I adore the programme with all of my heart, I really do!
She continued, "This show has forever transformed my life and means the world to me."
She went into greater detail about her family situation and her decision to leave the show.
She stated how important "Dancing" is to her as she concluded her post.
Alfonso Ribeiro, a co-host for Season 31, added his thoughts to the announcement. He wrote, "We will miss you."
Making the best choice for your entire family rather than just yourself is never easy.
During the 16th season of "Dancing With the Stars," which aired in 2013, Arnold became a contestant.
In season 25, she and singer-actor Jordan Fisher competed for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy.
