Dancing With the Stars 2013: First Look Inside the Studios! (PHOTOS)

We've been seeing the Dancing With the Stars Season 17 cast heading into the rehearsal studios in Los Angeles this week (besides Snooki, who is practicing in New Jersey to stay close to her family), but now it's time to take an even closer look.

ABC released new photos of the contestants and their pro partners busting some moves in the studios to prep for the big premiere night next week. Between Derek Hough and Glee star Amber Riley striking a pose at practice, and Val Chmerkovskiy and Elizabeth Berkley getting close during rehearsals, we already can't get enough of this star-studded cast.

Click through the gallery for a sneak peek at what's to come in the highly-anticipated one night a week ballroom competition. Who are you most excited to watch? Sound off in the comments!

Catch the Dancing With the Stars Season 17 premiere on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ;ABC.
