Actress and New York Times best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure will be joining the cast of the new season of Dancing With the Stars. The B&H author and Full House star will be partnering with dancer Mark Ballas on the 18th season of the hit ABC show, which premiers March 17.
“We are so grateful for Candace and for the many ways in which she uses the platform and gifts God has given her to point people toward Him,” said Jennifer Lyell, trade book publisher for B&H Publishing Group. “She is one of the most evangelistic authors with whom we've ever worked and has consistently shown her desire to honor Christ with the opportunities she is given. We are praying for Candace and look forward with anticipation to see how she uses this platform to bring great glory to Him on Dancing With the Stars.”
Bure's most recently published book Balancing It All (B&H Publishing Group) has been featured on CNN, E! News, Inside Edition, Fox & Friends, CBS’ Live from the Couch, Huffington Post Live and more.
Since the launch of her book, Bure’s social media pages have collectively grown by more than 600,000 followers. In addition to her casting on Dancing with the Stars, Cameron will continue to do media interviews to promote Balancing It All throughout the spring.
