By Steve Dove | Mar 13th, 2015

The 10th Anniversary season of Dancing with the Stars premieres MONDAY 8|7c on ABC! That's right, the ballroom's almost open and soon our hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will be welcoming us back. Our judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli will be there, ready to offer their first critiques. Dancing with the Stars: All Access will be live from the ballroom once again. So what's a super-fan to do to get ready? Here are 10 ways you can prepare for the Dancing with the Stars season 20 premiere!

1. Meet the Cast


Every season Dancing with the Stars finds some of the hottest celebrities and puts them on the dance floor and the 10th Anniversary season is no exception. You can get all of the details on the cast page and make sure to follow your favorites on Twitter.

2. Follow DWTS on Social Media

Speaking of Twitter, if you're not following @DancingABC, you should be. But if Twitter's not where you get social, there's also Facebook, Instagram, Google+, Pinterest and Tumblr.

3. Watch Chris Soules Try to Dance


Fans of The Bachelor may already know, but we've gotten a sneak preview of Chris Soules being taught how to dance. Let's see how he improves with the help of his new partner, defending champ Witney Carson.

4. Watch DWTS: All Access Rehearsals

Did you know that you can watch a live stream of some of your favorite couples rehearsing online? You absolutely can with DWTS: All Access. Check the schedule there to find out when the rehearsals are being broadcast.

5. Hear Noah Galloway's Incredible Story


Dancing with the Stars has been proud to have genuine heroes join its cast before and Noah Galloway is certainly one of them. After hearing him talk about the injuries he sufferred while serving his country in Iraq, it'll really be something special to see him on that dance floor.

6. Join the Conversation on the DWTS Message Boards

Dancing with the Stars has one of the best fan communities anywhere and you can join right in with them on our message boards. Start up or comment in a thread and make some new online friends.

7. Meet the Youngest Star EVER on DWTS


At age 14, Willow Shields (The Hunger Games) is the youngest celebrity to ever compete on Dancing with the Stars. Last season, Mark Ballas was able to make it to the finals with young Sadie Robertson, but can he do it again with an even younger partner?

8. Get Ready to Vote

If you're a Dancing fan, then you're going to want to keep your favorites in the ballroom. And the best way to do that is to cast your votes every week! Go ahead and log in to vote and make sure your account's in good standing before the big night. And while you're at it, sign up for SMS text alerts to remind you when the vote's about to open!

9. Go Back to Bruno's Writers' Room


We met Geryld Dabbage at the top of his game, but after a snafu during a live broadcast, things took a bad turn. Does he have a chance for redemption?

10. Tune in MONDAY MARCH 16 8|7c on ABC

Okay, I guess that one was a little obvious.
