"Dancing With the Stars" professional dancers receive close to $100,000 each full season as of 2015. The dancers are paid for 10 weeks of air time in addition to a month of pre-season rehearsals. Many of the professional dancers work two seasons each year, so they can earn much more.
In 2009, a dance agency reported that professional dancers get paid $5,200 per episode, but that number could have increased because of the show's popularity. Celebrities who participate in "Dancing With the Stars" are paid $125,000 and have the potential to make significantly more the longer they remain on the show.
