Bindi Irwin's going to be on the US version of Dancing With The Stars.

She’s pretty far away from the zoo…

The US version of Dancing with the Stars is on its 4870592 season and 17-year-old Bindi Irwin has announced that she’s going to be one of the celebrity contestants.

“I am unbelievably thrilled and truly blessed to be in the City of Angels to be part of this season of Dancing With The Stars,” Bindi said in a statement released by the US network ABC.

“This will be a completely new adventure for me and I’m excited to share my journey.”

And then she went truly life-inspiring on us and said:

“Life is about daring to dream, I’m in love with this city and ready to fall in love with the music and dance to come.”

@bindisueirwin is looking forward to the new adventure that is #DWTS!

Bindi is actually fairly well-known in the US thanks to the wildlife shows she’s produced from her base in Australia. Bindi: The Jungle Girl, Bindi’s Bootcamp and because of the legacy of her dad, Steve.

The show airs on September 14.

Netflix? Probably not.
