PSA: It's happening, folks - Dancing With The Stars is set to return to our screens in a flurry of glitter and sequins this April!
Yes, the the official premier date has finally been revealed - and you can bet we've blocked out our calendars.

When will Dancing With The Stars Australia start?

Dancing With The Stars: All Stars will premiere on Sunday, 11 April at 7.00pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.
The event will run for two-weeks, unlike previous seasons which played out over several weeks, and sees an impressive line-up of stars, including the return of five former champions and four wildcard entrants.

The celebrities will be divided into two groups, taking to the stage on alternate nights across the season. The leaderboard will be determined by a combination of judges' scores and scores from the studio audience, with eliminations in every episode.
The grand finale will see six couples make it through, where they will dance their hearts out for the coveted mirror ball trophy and prize money for their nominated charity.

The entire cast list has been gradually revealed over the past few weeks, with Home And Away stars Ada Nicodemou, Bec Hewitt, Lincoln Lewis and Luke Jacobz to return to the ballroom.
Wildcard contestants also include convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby, former Bachelor Matty J, and The Voice's Renee Bargh.
Returning to the dance floor arena are also original hosts Daryl Somers and Sonia Kruger, and original judges Helen Richey, Todd McKenney, Paul Mercurio and Mark Wilson.

Currently rehearsing for the upcoming DWTS special, the stars have been sharing behind the scenes updates, with Kyly Clarke recently revealing the physical toll she's suffered.
"Working extremely hard every day to create amazing dances for you all to see. I would have to say this has been one of the toughest five weeks of intense dancing that I've ever experienced," she penned.
With the new season only airing over a two-week period, it could explain the heavy and intense training that the cast has been going through.
