Michael Flatley to take part in ABC's `Dancing With the Stars'

ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" will get Michael Flatley next week.

Flatley, 49, is the former star of the Irish dance spectacle "Riverdance." He has gone on to create his own shows, "Lord of the Dance," "Feet of Flames" and "Celtic Tiger."

The champion Irish step dancer-choreographer will perform with members of his dance team on Tuesday's show, Scott Gorenstein, a representative for Flatley, said Thursday.
