Talk about an epic throwback Thursday!

Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke took to Instagram Thursday to post an old photo of herself and fellow DWTS star Julianne Hough — long before their reality TV days.

“#tbt to when @juleshough was still the shortest but I was definitely the most tan,” Burke, 32, captioned the group photo, which also features a much younger Mark Ballas and Derek Hough. “#eyeshadowfordays.”

In the picture, both Burke and Hough, 28, don glittery dance costumes, while Ballas, 30, and Derek, 31, both sport unbuttoned, long-sleeve dance shirts and pants.

Burke first joined the ABC reality dance competition in season 2 and most recently returned after taking a few seasons off to compete with Olympian Ryan Lochte for season 23 of DWTS this past fall.

Hough — who is a former Mirrorball Trophy winner and judge on the show — and Burke have yet to announce if they will return for season 24 later this year.

Dancing with the Stars will return for season 24 in the upcoming months.
