He's hanging up his dancing shoes.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy announced during an appearance on "The View" that he will no longer perform on "Dancing With The Stars."

"I'm done dancing," he said on the daytime talk show. "I feel like it's time."

"When I came back to the show, it was not the same -- I was different, probably," he explained of his earlier departure from "DWTS" in February 2013. "When I came back, I saw this amazing talent ... I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better. I was taking up a huge spot."

At this point, it's unknown if Chmerkovskiy will be returning as a judge.

Chmerkovskiy, 34, originally left "DWTS" after Season 16. This year, he returned for season 18, and won the Mirrorball trophy for the first time with Olympic ice skater Meryl Davis.
