The countdown begins. On September 9, the new cast of Dancing with the stars will face off on the floor of the mythical television set. A season rich in novelties that Camille Combal will present for several weeks. For this 12th season, two new members join the judges’ chairs.
The singer Bilal Hassani, who had shone as a finalist during the last season of the program, was chosen to join the members of the jury. At his side, he will find the historic judge Chris Marques as well as the dancer François Alu. Finally, the Star Dancer of the Opéra National de Paris and choreographer Marie-Agnès Gillot will also be there. Fans of the program will be sure to note that stylist Jean-Paul Gaultier and four-time DALS champion Denitsa Ikonomova will be absent for this new season.
The deputy director of TF1 Production had mentioned the departure of the famous dancer in the columns of Parisian. “We offered her to come back on the floor but her schedule does not allow it. She is preparing the choreography for a big film at the start of the school year and is working on another feature film,” he said.
For her part, the young woman had declared on her Instagram account that this program had changed her life: “I am very grateful to all the production of TF1 for having given me my chance to show what I was capable of”, said she explained and to continue: “I blossomed during 8 wonderful seasons as a dancer, coach and choreographer with 8 incredible people. So many beautiful encounters including the one with YOU the public. I take this opportunity to thank you again once for your unconditional support, your kind words and always delicate attentions which touch me enormously”.
This year, 12 personalities will try their hand at ballroom dancing on the floor of studio 217. to curry favor with the jury and the public. Among them, we will find Clémence Castel, the double winner of Koh-Lanta, who intends to mark the promotion of 2022.
According to information revealed in Le Parisien on August 23, the adventurer will compete on the arm of a dancer. A first in the history of the program in France. Will she be accompanied by Fauve Hautot, who took singer Tayc to victory last year? Inès Vandame, Candice Pascal… or a new recruit? The mystery remains intact.
