Celebs ready to put on dancing shoes

March 14, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Twelve celebrities will show off their toe tapping talents for the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars", and it all begins Monday night on ABC7.Former tennis star Monica Seles will be among the participants. Seles says she's never danced before, so strapping on some dancing shoes was difficult at first.

Other competitors include Las Vegas headliner Penn Jillette from Penn & Teller, and actress Priscilla Presley, just to name a few.

Despite practicing six hours each day, actor Steve Guttenberg says that was the easy part of the competition.

"It's sort of like a movie. You really get close to people and become friends, and then the movie's over and everybody goes away, and that really is, I think, the toughest part of it," said Guttenberg.

You can see the season premiere of 'Dancing with the Stars' on ABC7 Monday night at 8 p.m.
