The Dancing kids are in good hands.

ABC revealed the judges for the upcoming Dancing with the Stars: Juniors spin-off during Good Morning America on Monday. They are Olympic figure skater and reigning Dancing with the Stars champion Adam Rippon, Dancing with the Stars pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy, and choreographer Mandy Moore (not the Mandy Moore from This Is Us).

Rippon won a bronze medal as part of the figure skating team at the Winter Olympics earlier this year, and then took home the Mirrorball Trophy during Dancing with the Stars: Athletes, where he was partnered with Jenna Johnson.

Chmerkovskiy is a two-time Dancing with the Stars winner, first with Rumer Willis and then with Laurie Hernandez.

Moore is an Emmy-winning choreographer who has worked on Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance and plotted the steps for the movie La La Land.

They're joining dance pro Witney Carson, who has signed on as a mentor to the young dancers. Juniors will be 10 episodes and pre-taped to work around the kids' schedules. It will be the first DWTS to not air live. Episodes will be an hour long (grown-up Dancing is two hours).

Dancing with the Stars: Juniors premieres Sunday, Oct. 7 at 8/7c on ABC. Season 27 of grown-up Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, Sept. 24.
