This Dancing with the Stars season could truly be the most dramatic season ever, as RadarOnline.com has learned that the show's professional dancers are starting to revolt!

According to a show insider, “The professional dancers for the show are now more famous than the stars that are being cast, and they know it!”

For example, the source said, “Dancers Witney Carson and Valentin Chmerkovskiy are featured in the newly released poster promoting the new season, not the celebrities.”

“Now the dancers are demanding more perks and higher pay,” said the source, adding, “They know that they are the stars and are demanding that they be treated like it!”
