Jojo Siwa: Jojo Siwa announced at a news conference on Thursday that she will be dancing with a female pro during the Television Critics Association press tour. This is the first time the two women have teamed up in 30 seasons of the show.
Siwa says she is proud to “break down a wall that has never been broken before” for her choice to dance with a woman and tells young people that “you can dance with whomever you want to dance with”.
Siwa, a Singer, and social media star opened up about her sexuality in January, when she was a member of the LGBTQ + community and in a relationship.
Gymnast Sunny Lee, a three-time Olympics medalist, recently took home gold in all-around competition at the Tokyo Games and joined the show.
Additional cast members – and Siwa and Lee partners – will be unveiled on September 8th.
The new season will air on September 20th.
