The 30-year-old pro dancer and musician will not be returning to Dancing With The Stars this season — because he’s headed to NYC to star in Jersey Boys!
“I wanted to hand write this not to personally thank each and every one of you for the support over the years,” Mark wrote. “I am incredibly moved and grateful for all of your messages over the past 24 hours. I know many of you are concerned and curious. I want to wish all my DWTS comrades luck this season. I’ll miss competing and creating outside the box, however I am looking forward to this new chapter and venture that is beginning shortly. I will soon have new for you all on where you can find me, I hope to see you there.”
According to ET, Mark will star in a main role in the Broadway musical, which tells the behind-the-scenes story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, the band responsible for such classics as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man.”
