‘Dancing with the Stars: Juniors’ reveals the pros and mentors in a new video preview

The first ever season of “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors” is coming together. Set to premiere on Sunday night, October 7, we now know the hosts (Frankie Muniz and Jordan Fisher) the judges (Val Chmerkovskiy, Mandy Moore and Adam Rippon), and now the full list of young pros and adult mentors. See the list below and scroll down to the video introduction posted on August 1 by the official “DWTS: Juniors” Twitter.

Pro JT Church with mentor Alan Bersten

Pro Tristan Ianiero with mentor Artem Chigvintsev

Pro Artyon Celestine with mentor Brandon Armstrong

Pro Hailey Bills with mentor Jenna Johnson

Pro Rylee Arnold with mentor Lindsay Arnold

Pro Kameron Couch with mentor Hayley Erbert

Pro Lev Khmelev with mentor Keo Motsepe

Pro Jake Monreal with mentor Sasha Farber

Pro Sage Rosen with mentor Gleb Savchenko

Pro Brightyn Brems with mentor Cheryl Burke

Pro Kamri Peterson with mentor Witney Carson

Pro Elliana Walmsley with mentor Emma Slater

Among those pros are several past Mirror Ball champions. Johnson just won “DWTS: Athletes” this past spring with “Juniors” judge Adam Rippon. Arnold won the season before that with “Juniors” co-host Jordan Fisher. Carson won season 19 with Alfonso Ribeiro. And Cheryl Burke, the only two-time champ among the mentors, prevailed with Drew Lachey (season 2) and Emmitt Smith (season 3).

Since they bring winning experience to the dance floor perhaps that gives their tykes an edge. Arnold might especially have an advantage since her young pro is actually her little sister. And dance clearly runs in the Arnold family: another sister, Jensen Arnold, is among the top 10 contestants currently competing on “So You Think You Can Dance” this season.

Who are you most excited when the kids hit the dance floor?
