Bindi Irwin is lacing up her dancing shoes for the forthcoming season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, and partner Derek Hough can’t wait to hit the dance floor.

“We are gonna bust out with a kind of on-the-nose song the first week,” Hough told People.

Hough described his new partner, daughter of the late Steve Irwin, as a “positive energy,” saying, “I was thinking maybe it’s because she’s connected to nature and the animals or something. And if you’re that connected, you feel whole I guess. I don’t know what it is. I love her. She’s amazing. She’s a breath of fresh air. We all need a little Bindi in our life.”

DWTS fans will get to see Irwin and Hough compete when season 21 kicks off Sept. 14. The full list of competitors is available here, and to read more of Hough’s interview, head on over to People.
