ABC's celebrity dance off returns as Dancing with the Stars takes to ball room with an all new stable of super star competitors.  Stars of television, sports, music, and other venues team with professional partners in a bid to take home the coveted Dancing with the Stars mirror ball trophy.  In the wake of the seminal fourth season, all eyes are on Dancing with the Stars to surpass itself with its unique blend of personality, action, and drama.  Expect nothing less from the super successful dance contest as ABC brings its most competitive lineup of contestants yet.  No long shots, no underdogs, just pure dancing excitement.
