117299_D_4504_preAlthough the lineup of celebrity contestants for the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” won’t be announced until March 1, some of the professional dancers have been dropping hints in the Twitterverse as to whether they’ll be returning to the show when Season 10 begins.

“So You Think You Can Dance” alum Lacey Schwimmer announced on Twitter that she will not, in fact, be in competition this time around. “Hey twitterbugs!” the three-time “DWTS” pro, who has been paired up with Mark Dacascos, Steve-O and Lance Bass, tweeted.  “I will not be doing DWTS this season. But be sure to tune in!”

Also sitting out of the Season 10 competition: Jonathan Roberts, who was most recently paired with singer Macy Gray. “Hey Everyone. I will not be doing DWTS this season, will miss everyone but I'm sure you will see me on some tues shows until next season,” the pro and erstwhile Osmond tweeted. (No word in the Twitterverse whether Roberts' wife, fellow “DWTS” regular Anna Trebunskaya, will make it out onto the dance floor just yet.)

On the up side, it appears as though a fair number of your favorite pros will be sequined and set to perform when the new season begins on March 22.

“Got the big call! Can’t wait till next week!!!!” two-time champion Cheryl Burke posted.

“I'm Not not doing season 10 ...” tweeted former winner Derek Hough.

“Yes. I'm on,” posted Edyta “Legwarmers” Sliwinska.

So I uuuuuuuuuh guess i WILL see you next season my friends :), tweeted two-time winner Mark Ballas.

I'm not tweeting/responding regarding season 10 because we were asked not to," Maksim Chmerkovskiy tweeted. Don't know why others do. All I can say regarding me is... :)”
