Lacey Schwimmer out as Dancing with the Stars pro

Dancing with the Stars 10 won’t include Lacey Schwimmer as a professional dancer. She wrote on Twitter, “I will not be doing DWTS this season.” While she’s not bitter (“But be sure to tune in! <3″), she is disappointed, writing later, “I’m sad I will not be on this season.”

The former So You Think You Can Dance 3 finalist joined the show during season seven and often received criticism from the judges due to her atypical and edgier choreography.
