Rylee Arnold is the youngest and newest pro on the upcoming 32nd season of Dancing With the Stars!
The 18-year-old dancer may look familiar and with the last name Arnold… Yes, she is DWTS pro and one-time Lindsay Arnold‘s youngest sister.
Lindsay has competed on ten seasons of the show as a pro dance partner, winning season 25 with Jordan Fisher. She has taken the past couple of seasons off as she spends time with her own family, including her two young children.

Rylee has been dancing for quite a few years and since she was eight, her goal has been to be on Dancing With the Stars. About five years ago, that came true to an extent when she was on Dancing With the Stars: Juniors, with her sister as her mentor. She was partnered with black-ish star Miles Brown, and they were runners up!
“I have spent my whole dance career to be on the show and to get ready for the show, which just is so crazy that it’s finally happening and I just can’t wait to just perform and showcase my talent,” she shared in a video with Good Morning America.
Rylee also noted the time that she’s spent going to DWTS tapings and learn about the show over the years.
“I literally grew up going to all the tapings of Dancing With the Stars. The minute I became the right age to go into the studio and watch it live, I was in there. It is cool though, because I did grow up throughout the show and I got to see the ups and downs because although it is a really fun show and fun to do, there are challenges and things you have to face and get through,” Rylee said. “It’s really helpful to me that I got to experience that because I’m not just coming from not knowing anything about the show or not knowing how things work. But, I know the people, all the people that are on the show already are like big sisters and big brothers to me, so I feel comfortable going into it, and just so excited.”
If you didn’t know, Rylee and her sisters also have a YouTube channel all together!
After Rylee was officially announced to be on the show, Lindsay took to Instagram to celebrate.
“SECRET’S OUT 😭😭😭 my beautiful, talented, kind, and perfect baby sis @ryleearnold1 is a pro this season on @dancingwiththestars 🤩 to say I am proud is truly an understatement. This girl is the hardest worker, beyond talented, humble, and so kind and she is going to absolutely kill it this season! These pics are from the day Rylee moved down to LA and we were all there to say goodbye. Such a full circle moment for me as I distinctly remember when I did this same thing at 19 years old and had no idea how much my life was about to be blessed and changed by doing DWTS and I’m so so excited to watch my sister shine and have her moment now! If you aren’t already go give her a follow and get ready to vote every week for her and @harryjowsey 🤩🤩,” she wrote.
Rylee will be competing with Harry Jowsey and the season premieres in just two weeks on Tuesday, September 26th at 8pm ET/PT on ABC and Disney+!
