dancing with the stars mirrorball trophy tour 'Dancing With the Stars' announces Mirrorball Trophy Tour, chance to win premiere ticketsNot only did ABC reveal the Season 19 cast and pro pairings for “Dancing With the Stars” Thursday (Sept. 4), but the network also announced the upcoming Mirrorball Trophy Tour, where past celebrity dancers will tour the country to host a dance party at each stop. At the party, fans can learn a short ballroom routine and compete in front of a special guest judge. Fans can also enter to win tickets to the Sept. 15 premiere of “Dancing With the Stars.”

The contest kicked off with the Season 19 announcement in New York City and will continue through three other U.S. cities. At each of the three stops, students and instructors from the Arthur Murray dance school will teach the audience a 30- to 45-second routine using various ballroom techniques. Three audience members at each stop will be randomly selected to compete, with a former “DWTS” celebrity dancer judging the moves and picking the winner.
