Dorothy Hamill stepping onto ‘Dancing with the Stars’

|

Olympic-winning figure skater Dorothy Hamill is a hot shot on the ice.

Now, she’ll have the chance to dazzle on the dance floor.

The Olympic-winning figure skater and former Greenwich resident is stepping her way onto “Dancing with the Stars” in March, joining 11 other contenders on the 16th edition of ABC’s wildly popular TV dance competition.

Other famous faces to appear on the show include music legend Wynona Judd, kooky comedian Andy Dick, Baltimore Ravens football player Jacoby Jones and former “American Idol” contestant Kellie Pickler.

The season premier airs on March 18 at 8 p.m.

Hamill, 56, spent much of her childhood in the Riverside section of Greenwich. At 19, she took home the 1976 Olympic gold medal.
