The hit show “Dancing with the Stars” returns to ABC this September for season 30. This morning, Good Morning America announced the celebrities competing in this upcoming season. They include Melanie C from the Spice Girls, country singer Jimmie Allen, and more. But the celebrity we are most excited to see on that ballroom floor is Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby.
Cody Rigsby has been part of the Peloton family for seven years, and over that time, he has become the company’s cycling director. The Peloton community knows him most for his funky playlists, hysterical commentary, and fun dance moves. No matter what class he teaches, he always brings the energy and sass. We know it will be no different when he struts onto the “Dancing with the Stars” stage.
Before he started his Peloton career, Rigsby was actually a professional dancer. He told Good Morning America:
“In my former life before fitness I was a professional dancer. I danced for Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, so she’s used to busting a move.”
He added, “I’m definitely using muscles I haven’t used in a while because I’m dusting off those dancing shoes. But I’ve built up the endurance on Peloton in my cycling classes so I’m ready.”
Cody’s #BooCrew has already begun to rally from afar. Fellow Peloton instructors Kendall Toole and Robin Arźon, along with many others, have started posting on social media to show their support. Everyone is so excited to see Cody rock it on the show.
There have been rumors circulating about who Cody’s dance partner will be. Some say it could be Cheryl Burke, while others say it could be a partner of the same sex. Nothing has been confirmed yet, so we will have to wait until the premiere to find out.
Season 30 of Dancing with the Stars kicks off Monday, September 20. If you do not have ABC to watch it live, you will still be able to tune in on Hulu or through ABC.com.
