Dancing With The Stars recently announced which pros will return for Season 29 next month. Show executives are taking every safety precaution possible, which includes keeping the cast separate when they aren’t on the dance floor. This rule applies to married couples within the cast too. And there are more than you would expect!
The upcoming DWTS season features three married couples: Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson, Emma Slater and Sasha Farber, and Pasha Pashkov and Daniella Karagach. They will each have to live separately during the competition. The idea is that if one of them gets sick, they can’t spread their germs and infect other cast members. It’s a good plan, given how quickly Coronavirus is thought to spread. However, everyone can’t help but wonder if this will make the pros a little sad.
“It’s going to be bliss — I mean it’s going to be terrible,” Emma Slater joked to Good Morning America about being separated from Sasha. “It’s going to be so different because we can’t actually interact and even prep with each other, which is something completely different, but we’re doing everything we can to keep safe. There’s going to be a lot of FaceTiming.”
Emma went on to say that Sasha will stay in their home and she will look for somewhere else to stay.
Dancing With The Stars Wouldn’t Be the Same Without Emma
Fans are thrilled to have Emma back as a DWTS pro. Everyone was a little worried she wouldn’t return after she made a special announcement to fans on her Instagram page.
Emma has a life-long dream of becoming a real estate agent and finally made her dreams come true. She recently obtained her California real estate license and is so excited to embark on this new career path.
“Now I can Cha Cha Cha round my open houses while I show you how big the closet space is!” she joked with fans.

I got my real estate license today!!!! I really can’t believe it!!! Not too many people know this but I’ve been studying for quite a while, and I’ve had a passion for real estate all my life. I plan to use it for personal investments as well as help others with their real estate needs too. Now I can Cha Cha Cha round my open houses while I show you how big the closet space is! Hahahaha! Yay! 💕🏡✉️
Who Else is Joining Season 29?
Other pros returning to Dancing With The Stars this season include Sharna Burgess, Peta Murgatroyd, Brandon Armstrong, Cheryl Burke, Keo Motsepe, Gleb Savchenko, and Britt Stewart.
Peta’s husband, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, has been a pro in the past but announced his official retirement in 2018. It would have been really interesting to see four married couples compete in one season.
