Dancing with the Stars is an American reality competition television series with 31 seasons. Since its 2005 premiere, the sitcom has enjoyed a great run on television. The newest season on the list, which is currently airing, is number 31.
Several celebrities and professional dancers compete against one another each week on Dancing with the Stars, which is essentially a dance competition. Every week until the winning duo is left in, the pair with the lowest combined score (judges’ scores plus audience votes) gets eliminated. Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro will serve as this year’s Dancing with the Stars season 31 hosts.
2014’s season nineteen of the show was won by Alfonso. And if your memory is a little hazy and you’re wondering with whom he won the show, no worries; we are here to assist. He and his dance partner Witney Carson took home the trophy that year. That year, Witney and Alfonso were fantastic!
Who is Witney Carson?
Witney Carson is a 29-year-old professional dancer and choreographer from the United States. She shot to popularity in 2012 when she finished in the top six of the ninth season of the dance reality competition So You Think You Can Dance. She became a troupe dancer on Dancing with the Stars in season 16 and quickly advanced to professional status in season 18.
Since then, she has performed frequently on the show as a professional dancer for several celebrities. In just her second season as a professional dancer in the competition, she won in season 19 with this year’s presenter Alfonso Ribeiro! She put in a lot of effort as a young girl in a small Utah town by taking countless dancing lessons.
She has put in a lot of effort over the years and is now a phenomenal dancer who has been nominated for the prestigious Emmy awards! With extensive training in ballet, jazz, modern, hip-hop, lyrical, tap, Latin, and traditional ballroom, she has performed all around the world with well-known superstars.
When Alfonso Ribeiro was announced as the host of the current season of Dancing with the Stars, she expressed her joy and delight. On Instagram, she posted a clip of her and Alfonso performing together on the same show, along with a lengthy caption.
In 2016, she married her longtime boyfriend, Carson McAllister, and the pair have been together ever since. She still competes on Dancing with the Stars and has already made it to the top 5 several times with a variety of famous partners. That is also a success in and of itself!
