Dancing with the Stars Promotional Photo

The cast reveal of the 31st season of Dancing With The Stars included a familiar face — Daniel Durant! Hot off the heels of the fantastic award season for the film Coda, Durant becomes the next in a trend of Deaf talent on dance competition programs in the US and the UK. Nyle DiMarco and Marlee Matlin have both faired well on previous seasons of Dancing With The Stars. Durant will dance with Britt Stewart.

DWTS is a return to the small screen for Durant, who was previously featured in You (Netflix) and Switched At Birth (ABC/Freeform). He has been active with Deaf West Theatre (Cyrano, Flowers For Algernon, Spring Awakening on Broadway), and starred in the 2012 Michigan Premiere of Police Deaf Near Far — co-produced by Oakland University and TerpTheatre.

The competition kicks off on September 19th on Disney+.
