ABC.COM TAKES "DANCING WITH THE STARS" FROM THE BALLROOM TO YOUR COMPUTER WITH AN ARRAY OF FEATURES AVAILABLE ONLINE

Twelve celebrities and their dance partners will shine on stage and screen as season 11 of "Dancing with the Stars" gets underway. But the bright lights and fun won't stop after the show! ABC.com presents multiple features online for fans to participate in and to enjoy. Available on www.abc.com this dancing season, in addition to full episodes, are exclusive video content, "Dancing Live Chat Party," "Backstage at Dancing with the Stars!" with host Sabrina Bryan, and team shirts designed by the teams. The fun is all at your fingertips at www.abc.com/dancing-with-the-stars.

For the first time ever on "Dancing with the Stars," fans will have the opportunity to chat with one another on the site, as "Dancing Live Chat Party" starts on Monday, September 20 and continues throughout the season every Monday thereafter. The chat will begin live during the east coast feed at 5:00 p.m., PT, and will remain open until the end of the show at 10:00 p.m., PT.

Returning for its third season, "Backstage at Dancing with the Stars!" gives fans the chance to go where no cameras have gone before. Sabrina Bryan, Season 5 alum, returns as the host of this inside and intimate look at the celebrities and the dancers. "Backstage" will run weekly on Wednesday mornings following Tuesday night's "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show." The videos will be available on www.abc.com as well as HULU, Youtube and ABC Mobile. An extended version of this weekly series is also available exclusively on AT&T mobile devices.

Once again, ABC and Caf´┐Ż Press have joined forces to bring fans official swag from the show. This season the dancing pairs put their creative minds together to design Team Shirts. This year, $1 for every "Dancing with the Stars" team t-shirt sold will be donated to Stand Up to Cancer, a grassroots movement raising much-needed funds for groundbreaking cancer research. Team shirts are available now at the ABCOnline Store at www.abctvstore.com.

Hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke ("Dancing with the Stars" Season 7 Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
