DANCING WITH THE STARS - ALL STARS marks the first time prior contestants will return for another chance at winning the coveted mirror ball trophy for a very special All-Star season. From former champions to fan favorites, including a celebrity voted in by fans, the stars and their professional partners will return to the ballroom on national television during the season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars," MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), followed by the premiere of "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

So does the drama of a soap opera compare to that found on the dance floor? We'll have to ask Kelly Monaco about that one, as she's been a part of both worlds.

Kelly Monaco originated the highly anticipated role of Samantha McCall on ABC's General Hospital in October 2003. In the category of Outstanding Lead Actress, Kelly was an Emmy nominee for this role in 2006. Her television credits include co-hosting the 33rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards as they were broadcast for the first time from Hollywood.

Kelly also starred in the first season of the ABC primetime summer mega-hit, Dancing with the Stars, where she won the dance championship. She had a three-and-a-half-year stint on the ABC Daytime drama Port Charles, garnering her first Daytime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2003.

Kelly's television debut occurred in 1997, when she landed a recurring role on Baywatch. While shooting Port Charles, she also guest starred opposite Charlie Sheen and Heather Locklear in a season finale of ABC's Spin City. In addition, she has appeared in the feature films Idle Hands, Mumford, BASEketball, and was most recently seen on Hallmark's movie Edge of the Garden.

Kelly headlined and opened the Las Vegas Peep Show performing in front of sold-out audiences. She was also featured in the Emmy-Award winning documentary Daytime Gives Back, Africa and allowed fans a peak into her private life on E!'s Dirty Soap.

Kelly grew up on the East Coast, where she participated in soccer, swimming, track and softball, among other sports. Her family moved from the bustling city of Philadelphia to the more peaceful environment of the Poconos. In addition to athletics, she participated intensely in speech, debate and theater in high school. Kelly is involved in Feed the Children and Children's Hospital. She resides in Los Angeles
