Kym Johnson is taking a break from "Dancing With the Stars" after 14 seasons with the ABC series, Us Weekly reports. "I will be taking the next season off from 'DWTS USA,' so that I may accept an amazing work opportunity back home in Australia," the 37-year-old professional ballroom dancer said, although she didn't reveal anything further. "I am excited, nervous and humbled by this chance and look forward to sharing more about it with you soon."
