No Dancing With The Stars pro dancer is ever guaranteed a spot on the show. Sharna Burgess won Season 27 and then producers cut her in Season 28. However, everyone remains hopeful they’ll be asked back for Season 30 in the fall. Lindsay Arnold really hopes to make her grand return after taking Season 29 off due to her maternity leave.
“So, I have every intention of coming back!” Lindsay told ET in an exclusive interview. “I am ready to go, I feel good, I want to dance again, I’m super excited about it. But as you know, us pros don’t really get to decide if we come back. We can say we want to do it, but at the end of the day, [producers] have to ask us back on the show, which doesn’t happen until the last hour, I swear.”
Producers also cut Artem Chigvintsev just before Season 28. He said it was a heartbreaking experience, but he felt overjoyed when producers asked him to come back for Season 29. He ended up winning that season.
If producers ask her back, Lindsay Arnold wants to dedicate the season to someone special
Lindsay went on to add that if production calls and offers her a spot, she has every intention of saying “yes.” And if she competes in Season 30, she’s dedicating her performances to her baby girl Sage.
“I think Sage would be really disappointed in her mom if she doesn’t win,” she joked with ET. “So, c’mon, we gotta do it! Bring it home for Sage! I gotta win as a mom now. It’s gotta happen.”
Until she hears differently, Lindsay trains as if she will compete in Season 30. Fans noticed her training really seems to be paying off. Just months after giving birth to her daughter, Lindsay felt confident rocking a bikini.

In the ET exclusive, Lindsay went on to say that she thinks her best friend Witney Carson also plans to return. Witney also took off Season 29 for maternity leave.
“I think she’s in the same boat as me,” the dancer admitted. “And it’s so good because we both have had a good amount of time. It was nice we had our babies and it’s not like the season was the next week or the next month; I don’t know if I would have been ready for that at that point. I really, really appreciate that I’ve had this time with Sage, and that she’ll be older by the time when I’m doing that.”
