‘Dancing with the Stars’: fall 2011 celebrities, pros party away

Party time!

So how did many of the members of the “Dancing with the Stars” family celebrate Memorial Day? By partying, of course!

On Monday, professional dancer Cheryl Burke played host to a rather massive bash including both celebrities and pros from the upcoming fall 2011 season. Among the attendees? Rob Kardashian (who is Cheryl’s partner this season), Lacey Schwimmer, and Mark Ballas. (All of the following people spent a good bit of time Monday talking about the party — which included a BBQ — on Twitter.)

Considering how much time some of the contestants and pros have spent in rehearsals since the beginning of the season, it certainly is understandable that they would need a break thrown in there for some much-needed fun. This also helps to build some chemistry among various people in the cast … which is ultimately going to lead to plenty of good times on the show itself.

The new season of “Dancing with the Stars” is set to debut on Monday, September 19 on ABC. Based on everything you have seen the cast do so far, do you think this has the makings to ultimately be a great season?
