HOUSTON — After almost 15 years as the governor of Texas and backing out of the 2016 presidential race, Rick Perry is busting a new move — a dance move.

Perry will be joining the latest cast of Dancing with the Stars!

The former-governor sent out a tweet Monday morning that suggested the show could be a platform for pressing political issues. He'll be jumping into the mix with rapper Vanilla Ice and Olympians Laurie Hernandez and Ryan Lochte for the show's 23rd season, according to Entertainment Tonight.
