Dancing With the Stars has been on the air for a crazy 27 seasons, which means the show has seen every type of contestant possible. From movie stars to athletes to reality TV alums, the ABC competition show has seen them all.
And, while there have been a number of great older dancers, the show has really done a great job of showcasing young talent. Here are the top five best teenage stars to ever be on the show!
Laurie Hernandez (16)
Hernandez competed on Season 23 of Dancing With the Stars and won the coveted trophy with her partner Val Chmerkovskiy. In fact, Hernandez became the youngest person to ever win the show when she did it back in 2016! Not only was she a phenomenal dancer, her bubbly personality really took her far.
She’s a huge star now, but Zendaya was just 16 when she competed on Dancing With the Stars in 2013. Her partner was Val Chmerkovskiy and they almost won but eventually lost to country singer Kellie Pickler. Zendaya did a great job of conquering the tough ballroom styles of dance while also bringing her background in hip hop to the show!
Milo Manheim (17)
The Disney Channel star is the most recent teenager to compete on the show. He was partnered with Witney Carson for the most recent season and though he was definitely a front runner, he ended up losing to Bobby Bones. Manheim is definitely the best male teenager the show has ever seen!
Bindi Irwin (17)
Despite not having any real dance experience, Irwin totally crushed the competition with her partner Derek Hough back in Season 21. She was a fantastic dancer and was able to complete some very tough routines, but she also brought such emotion to the dance floor.
Sadie Robertson (17)
Robertson competed with pro, Mark Ballas, back in Season 19 and they ended up coming in second place. Robertson wasn’t the best dancer on the show, but she worked really hard and improved a lot as the season went on!
