Despite rumors he's quitting ... TMZ has learned, "Dancing with the Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is COMING BACK TO THE SHOW -- and we got the video to prove it!!!

Maksim touched down in LAX yesterday for his first practice -- he didn't say much ... but as soon as he landed, guy made a beeline for an L.A. dance studio ... where he met with Melissa Gilbert -- one of the stars on the upcoming season.

TMZ broke the story ... Sherri Shepherd and Heather Locklear's ex Jack Wagner are also set to compete on the show.

Season 14 is scheduled to kick off next month.

Yea! ABC Pay attention! Listen to what the people want. We like Maks. It is a good decision to keep him on the program.We also love General Hospital. Soaps are a part of history. No matter who is running the show, there are some things that should never change. General Hospital is as American as apple pie. American woman know just what we want. So ABC listen up, don't touch our fine looking men or our soap General Hospital. Know a good thing when you got it.

Oh yea, by the way, what about beautiful Val? I hope he will be on also. Even if he just leads the troupe. He is a fantastic dancer and I love watching him dance. Abc we really want you to listen to us when we say that some things should never change. Dancing with the stars doesnt need to be so politically correct. Just good dancing is fine. Also, General Hospital is part of American History. American woman love their soaps. Both shows should stay on. Both brothers should too. Right On!
