Dancing with the Stars has officially welcomed 14 new faces into the ballroom!

September 13 on Good Morning America, all of the pairings for season 32 of Dancing with the Stars were revealed, and executive producer Conrad Green gushed about the stars hitting the ballroom.

“What’s interesting with a lot of our contestants this year is this real drive and excitement about doing it. There’s a real passion for it. It’s been a tough number of years, one way or another… so what I’m hoping we can bring to people is bringing Dancing [with the Stars] back and giving audiences a blast of sunshine early in the week.”

We already figured out which professional dancers will be on season 32, but what about their oh-so talented partners?

Charity Lawson debuted on ABC as one of Zach Shallcross‘ suitresses on The Bachelor, then led The Bachelorette just a few months later, where she well and truly stole our hearts — and that of her now-fiancé, Dotun Olubeko. Navigating her whirlwind journey with class (despite Brayden Bowers testing her patience), we hooe Lawson’s incredible poise translates to ballroom triumph alongside Artem Chigvintsev, the same pro that former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe danced (and won) with in season 29.

While she is known for her role on Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules, Ariana Madix is also a world-renowned bartender, author of Fancy AF Cocktails: Drink Recipes from a Couple of Professional Drinkers, and a direct-to-consumer cocktail kit entrepreneur — we can’t wait to watch her go from shaking cocktails, to shaking her hips with pro Pasha Pashkov.

Known for smash hits like “I’m Yours” and “I Won’t Give Up,” two-time Grammy winner Jason Mraz is one of the most talented singer-songwriters of his generation.
