For people who missed Good Morning America this morning, the DWTS season 9 cast has been announced. I think I know about five of the contestants. Most excited about model Kathy Ireland and actor Debi Mazer at this early point. Also, they’re including more dances: Lambada, Charleston, Bolero and Two-Step. So it appears the show is veering away a bit from competitive ballroom and into the social-dance sphere (social dances both past and present, both in and outside of the U.S.). Will be interested to see how it pans out…

The show premieres Monday, September 21, 8 p.m. ET, on ABC.

  1. I'm glad they're including Bolero… but so not happy about the others.

    It's going to be an interesting cast… I'm waiting to see who partnered with who before I make decisions.

  2. That women looks like she's naked 🙂

  3. I wonder if that will affect the costuming at all? Ballroom dances seem to favor skimpier costumes for the ladies.

  4. I'm excited about Bolero! I hope they'll do it justice
