On Tuesday, ORF reported the full list of “Dancing Stars” participants. “I danced once, but I haven’t done anything for at least 20 years,” says Hannes Karting. “The expectations for my performance will be especially high,” says Karina Sarkisova.
Hannes Kartnig and Karina Sarkissova want to be “dancing stars”. The former Sturm Graz boss and ballerina, who previously served as a juror on the hit TV format, strolled across the dance floor with eight other celebrities on the show’s fifteenth round. ORF announced the full list of participants for the new edition of “Dancing Stars” (from March 3, ORF 1) on Tuesday.
Sarkisova and Karting on Dancing Stars
Actress Lillian Klebow, influencer and cabaret artist Michael Buchinger, former ski jumping coach Alexander Pointner, former contestant and commentator Corinna Kamper, design guru Martina Reuter and restaurateur Evelyn Esselbock have already been selected. The team is now completed by Kartnej, Sarkisova, musician Lukas Fendreich, and author and keynote speaker Omar Khair Anam. Mirjam Weichselbraun and Andi Knoll will guide you through the performances.
Kartnig participates in Dancing Stars
“I have a lot to do with dance sport, I’ve organized world championships with real super dancers,” Cartneig emphasized that he’s not just at home in football. But: “I danced once, but I haven’t done anything for at least 20 years – and you forget about it.” He won’t be able to swing his hips well anymore – “but trying is about studying”.
Sarkissova on Dancing Stars in a different role
Ballerina Sarkissova said of her change of sides: “The expectations of my performance will be particularly high and the jury will notice me particularly critically. But classical ballet is a very different area from Latin American dances, I haven’t danced yet, I have to learn it as well as all the others.”

Papa Reinhard will probably keep his fingers crossed for Lukas Wendrich’s sake. But he could not dance, as he himself admitted, “but he always wanted to learn it.” This is now a “great opportunity”. Omar Khairul-Anam revealed that he was “so excited” when he was asked to join Dancing Stars.
