who decides what cast member the professional dancer gets?

I'm really curious how the show decides how the professional dancer and the cast member are paired up!

It's up to the casting department. Whoever they hire to participate, it is usually the Casting Director (Deena ?)and her Dept. of staff people, who plays a role in picking and choosing the partners and Pro Dancers. As in the case with Maks & Karina, when they returned from their Broadway "Burn The Floor" show, they flew back to L.A. to find out who they were teamed with. Everyone just shows up back to the studios and are informed who the partners are. It would be more convenient if the Pro Dancer is approached first and asked if he/she would like to go throughthe list of the names and getting the opportunity of choosing for himself/herself, but that is not the case. It's like.... here's the menu and choose want you want from it(if only).

Nice dream idea on approaching the dancer but that is rife with disaster. How do you decide what dancer to approach first? When does it become an issue of favoritism for the professional dancers? I think it needs to be entirely random how they match the couples. Are the professionals not professional enough to take the hand their dealt?
