    It seems like just yesterday Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon won season 26 of "Dancing with the Stars." But another season is upon us and after weeks of rumors, the cast was officially revealed on "Good Morning America."

    Along with their professional dance partners, we were introduced to the actors, athletes, reality stars, and singers who will be doused in glitter and vying for the coveted mirrorball trophy. Meet the cast and watch the premiere of season 27 at 8 p.m., September 24 on ABC.

    Social media star Alexis Ren is hoping to gain a whole new following on this season of "Dancing with the Stars." The model and Instagram sensation has been part of campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, nabbed the cover of Maxim, and most recently was named the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition Rookie of the Year.

    It was in fact during that SI shoot Ren revealed some info which might make her fellow contestants a bit nervous — she's a classically trained ballerina.

    Ren, of course, took to the platform which made her famous to share a few words on this latest chapter of her life. "I hope mom is watching and smiling from above. Excited to be apart of @dancingabc let's do this @alanbersten."

    Bobby Bones has teamed up with Sharna Burgess.

    Bones is no stranger to reality TV. The host of the nationally syndicated radio show, "The Bobby Bones Show" served as a mentor on this past season of "American Idol."

    His list of impressive accomplishments includes New York Times best-selling author, 2017 Country Music Association National Broadcast Personality of the Year and the youngest ever inductee into the National Radio Hall of Fame.

    Bones could not contain his excitement about the show and new partner Sharna Burgess on Twitter.

    "What life is this? Thanks for alll the kind messages about me doing Dancing With The Stars. My partner is freaking coolest. As seen here. Whoaaaaaaa @SharnaBurgess."

    Paralympian Danelle Umstead is trading in her skis for heels this season. The Illinois native was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa at the age of 13. This genetic eye condition causes the retina to degenerate progressively, eventually resulting in blindness.

    At the 2010 Winter Games, Umstead won a bronze in both the downhill and super combined events. She added to her medal collection four years later with another bronze in the super combined at the 2014 Games in Sochi. Now she is taking on DWTS with her pro partner Artem Chigvintsev.

    Umstead shared her enthusiasm for the upcoming journey in an Instagram post.

    "This is really happening. It is nice to finally share this amazing adventure with you all. Promise to give it all I have. So lucky to have @theartemc as my partner, coach, and partner in crime @dancingabc #dwts."
