“Dancing With The Stars is doing it’s biggest opening number ever, and you may have a chance to be a part of it!” the show wrote in the notes section.
They continued, “Come down to the El Capitan Theater at 9pm on September 10th on Hollywood and Highland. You’ll see our pro’s and their partners and maybe even dance with them! Learn the dance in the video and RSVP to our Facebook event!”
“Incredibly excited and blessed to be working with such an inspirational and wonderful partner. I can’t wait for the journey to come with @derekhough working together on something so new to me,” Bindi wrote on Instagram.
She continued, “So far I can’t stop laughing in the #DWTS studios and I’ve learned such a lot already thanks to Derek’s patience! I can’t wait to see what’s yet to come and I’m ready to put my heart and soul into this adventure.”
The 30-year-old pro dancer spoke to People about getting Bindi, 17, as his partner for the new season.
“We are gonna bust out with a kind of on-the-nose song the first week,” he shared. “I’m in this space right now where I’m super pumped on life right now. I feel connected. I feel great. And then she walks in my life. You don’t understand what positive energy she is.”
Derek added, “I’m trying to figure out what it is,” he said of her spark. “I just got off a vacation on a lake, and I was thinking maybe it’s because she’s connected to nature and the animals or something. And if you’re that connected, you feel whole I guess. I don’t know what it is. I love her. She’s amazing. She’s a breath of fresh air. We all need a little Bindi in our life. Seriously.”

“Spending my days in the #DWTS studio! Finally getting into the swing of things and loving it. Let’s go @DancingABC,” the 17-year-old conservationist recently shared on Twitter after a few days of practice along with pro Derek Hough.
