The first season of "Dancing Stars" started airing in Autumn of 2005 on ORF1, the second season started in Spring 2006, the third season in Spring of 2007, the fourth season in 2008 and the fifth season in 2009. Dancing Stars hosts:
In Season 1, 2 and 3 the show was hosted by Alfons Haider (Main Host) and Mirjam Weichselbraun (Backstage and Interviews). In Season 4 Mirjam Weichselbraun replaced Alfons Haider and winner of Season 3 Klaus Eberhartinger took her place. In Season 5, Mirjam Weichselbraun was the main host while Alfons Haider took Klaus Eberhartingers place. Judges:
In the first season, the dancers were judged by professional dance sport judges Hannes Nedbal and Nicole Burns-Hansen, dance school owner Thomas Schäfer-Elmayer and former musical actress, singer and dancer Dagmar Koller. In the second season, Harald Serafin, operetta singer and theater manager, filled in for Dagmar Koller. In the third season, Guggi Löwinger, actress, singer and dancer, took his place. In the fourth season, Klaus Eberhartinger replaced Alfons Haider as a host who therefore joined the judging panel. In the fifth season, the two men switched places again with Klaus Eberhartinger judging beside Hannes Nedbal, Nicole Burns-Hansen and Thomas Schäfer-Elmayer who were judges in all five seasons.

Special Episodes[edit]

After the final of the second and third season a "Dancing Stars Best of" was aired and after the "Best of" of Season 3 there was a special episode called " Dancing Stars – Die Traumhochzeit" (Dancing Stars – The Dream Wedding) in which the professional ballroom dancers Balázs Ekker and Alice Guschelbauer got married. Another "Best of" was aired before the start of season 5. After the fourth season, there was a special episode called "Dance for Europe" in which the couple to represent Austria at the Eurovison Dance Contest 2008 was selected. The couples to participate in this episode were:

  • Julia Polai with Peter L. Eppinger
  • Alexander Kreissl with Simone Stelzer
  • Alice Guschelbauer with Michael Tschuggnall
  • Balázs Ekker with Nicole Beutler
  • Michaela Heintzinger with Gregor Bloéb

  • Alexander Zaglmaier with Zabine Kapfinger
  • Nicole Kuntner with Dorian Steidl

Andy and Kelly Kainz who represented Austria in the Eurovision Dance Contest 2007 (5th place) did not participate in this special episode due to conflicting schedules. The winners were Nicole Kuntner and Dorian Steidl who later came second last at the Dance Contest in Glasgow. Before the start of season four, ORF aired the reality show "Dance with Me" in which the private life of the professional dancers was shown. During season five, a dance course was aired in which the professional dancers taught the viewers basics of Cha-Cha-Cha, Rumba, Jive, Samba, Paso Doble, English Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstepp, Tango and Viennese Waltz.
