Will Mark Ballas Return For 'Dancing With The Stars' Season 23?

There’s no doubt that Mark Ballas is one of our favorite pros on Dancing With The Stars, so we’re hoping and praying that he will be a part of season 23 this fall.

However, the 30-year-old pro dancer and musician isn’t so sure just yet.

“I’m not sure yet,” Mark dished to People about his return. “This one just finished and my back still hurts. Thinking that far ahead is kind of … you know, it’s hard.”

He’s speaking about his back injury that he suffered during season 22, while in rehearsals for a salsa with Paige VanZant.

But if he does return, he’s already got his dream partner picked out: “I don’t know. They do a great job of picking people that are entertaining and fun. If I could have anyone it would be Shakira. She’s, like, my No. 1 choice. I think she would be amazing.”
