Would you love to be part of the studio audience for "Dancing With the Stars?" Getting your hands on a few "Dancing With the Stars" tickets may take some time. With the growing popularity of ABC's reality dance show, audience hopefuls must join an online wait list for an opportunity to request "Dancing With the Stars" tickets and be in the live audience of ABC's dance phenomenon as it tapes live in Hollywood.

Free Tickets

The website to obtain the free tickets is at Visit their Dancing with the Stars page to put yourself on the waitlist. The general waitlist is available at any time. You must enter your name, email, phone number, date of birth, state, and gender. You can't request specific dates. They send out notifications on a first-come, first-served basis to those on the waitlist and you have a limited amount of time to give your response. If you miss that opportunity, they put you back on the waitlist without having to register again. Usually, these are sent out five days in advance of the taping date. If you respond in time, you can get up to four vouchers.

As "Dancing with the Stars" is a live show, it is easy to figure out when the tapings will be, but they are also posted on the website. You can also sign up for the newsletter, so you will be notified of future opportunities. You can visit their Facebook page to also enter a lottery for Priority tickets.

To be an audience member, you must be age 14 or older. Accessible seating, with companion seating, is available on a limited basis. You must call within 48 hours to request it if you receive the free tickets.

Where Is "Dancing With the Stars" Filmed?

Avoiding Scams
