Mark Ballas got injured during the previous season of Dancing With The Stars, where he was competing alongside Paige VanZant. During a practice dance, Ballas hurt his back and he explained that he had hurt one of his disks in his back. Even though Mark returned to the show to compete, he was clearly in pain when the season ended. The new season will start this fall, but Mark may not be there. According to a new report, Mark Ballas can’t really say whether he’ll be back, because it all depends on his back and how things are going.
Ballas hasn’t revealed what the status is on his back, but it sounds like he could be taking some time off for a while to deal with the injury. “I’m not sure yet,” Mark Ballas revealed after being asked if he would be returning to the show next season, adding, “This [season] just finished and my back still hurts.”
One can imagine that Ballas will have to take some time off to relax so he can heal. And while he may not be able to compete on the show, it is very possible that Mark will be busy doing something else – planning his wedding. He proposed to his girlfriend, BC Jean, recently and the two are planning a dance-packed wedding. Even BC Jean is planning on getting some lessons, as she doesn’t want to be upstaged by her husband at their wedding.
As for Dancing With The Stars, Mark has been on the show for 18 seasons now, so it makes sense that he could use a break to heal his body. Last season, Derek Hough decided to take a break to explore other things. He ended up traveling around the world and even took up boxing for a bit. Maybe this is Mark Ballas’ time to relax and recover.
