"The rumors are true: your boy is gonna be on Dancing with the Stars," Rigsby told his Instagram followers in a video posted to his Story on Tuesday morning. "I'm so excited to do this season, but most importantly, I just met Mel C, Sporty Spice."

Rigsby's introduction to Mel C comes not long after Peloton featured a Peloton x Spice Girls Artist Series in June, which included bike, treadmill, barre, yoga and strength workouts all soundtracked to the iconic girl group's discography.

Rigbsy, who is known for his pop-themed rides and workouts with Peloton, previously told PEOPLE he puts music front-and-center in his classes. The former professional dancer, who previously performed with stars like Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, said his experience as a dancer helped his Peloton career.

"If you take my class, I'm a stickler for musicality — I want the push to go on the beat drop, and I want it to feel like the music," he said.

Rigsby added, "I want someone to take my class, and think, 'Oh my God, this entire playlist makes sense.' And the connections between each song completely makes sense."

Along with Rigsby and Mel C, season 30 of DWTS is set to feature an all-star lineup. The cast will also include The Talk co-host Amanda Kloots, Beverly Hills, 90210's Brian Austin Green, Bling Empire's Christine Chiu, former NBA player Iman Shumpert, country star Jimmie Allen, YouTube star JoJo Siwa, Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore, Cobra Kai's Martin Kove, The Bachelor's Matt James, The Office's Melora Hardin, WWE's Mike "The Miz" Mizanin, Olivia Jade and Olympic gymnast Suni Lee.

Season 30 of Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, Sept. 20, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
