Shall We Dance?

Strike up the band and get out your dancing shoes.

It's just been confirmed that the U.S. blockbuster TV show DWTS will be a competitive "sport" at the London 2012 Olympics.

The names of all the contestants have yet to be announced. But there is definite word on one couple. And it's a shocker. Apparently, professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy and professional dance judge Len Goodman have decided to set aside their differences and compete together as the first same-sex dance couple ever on DWTS. Each of the men had something nice to say about the other. Chmerkovskiy said of Goodman, "He's an oldie but a goodie," whereas Goodman commented about his new dance partner, "Sure he has a big mouth, but he also has terrific feet."

The gossip is that Prince Charles, eager to shed his uptight image once and for all, will also be a dance contestant. No definite word on his partner. Julianne Hough, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, and Katy Perry are all being considered. Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth, his mum, is delighted by the news of her son's participation. "Time for him to stop being a Royal stick-in-the-mud," she has said.

Famed dancer and choreographer Agnes de Mille once expressed a similar sentiment about the benefits of dance, although she put it a little more poetically: "To dance is to be yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power on earth and it is Yours for the taking."

Now that's the Olympic spirit!
