The Dancing with the Stars: Juniors cast was announced Tuesday night, and don't let the title fool you: This dance competition is definitely not small on star power. There are several famous faces among the lineup of 12 contestants, including one especially familiar to Bravo fans.
The cast includes Sophia Pippen, the daughter of The Real Housewives of Miami alum Larsa Pippen and six-time NBA champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Scottie Pippen. You can look back on Larsa's time on RHOM in the video, above. Oh, and the Pippens are also tight with a certain family by the name of Kardashian. You may have heard of them.
Though she's only 9 years old, Sophia has already accomplished a ton before she heads into the ballroom on DWTS: Juniors. She has a burgeoning career in fashion and beauty, having been signed by Wilhelmina Kids and Teri B. Talent and modeling for the likes of Oscar De La Renta Kids, Aliva Simone, and KidPik, according to her cast bio.
Sophia will be partnered with professional junior ballroom dancer Jake Monreal and mentored by longtime DWTS favorite Sasha Farber. Go get that Mirrorball trophy, Sophia!
You're sure to recognize Sophia's fellow competitors, which include reality star Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, Mackenzie Ziegler, Maddie Ziegler's younger sister who's also of Dance Moms fame, and Tripp Palin, the son of Bristol Palin and grandson of Sarah Palin.
