Speed skating may be his passion, but Apolo Anton Ohno apparently couldn't pass-up the opportunity to two-step for fans one last time.

The fourth-season Dancing with the Stars champion has announced that he will join Dancing with the Stars - The Tour for five stops of the 24-city North American tour that kicked-off last Wednesday in Austin, TX.

"After the show I started training again for the Olympics but realized quickly that I couldn't go on without at least one more week of samba," the 25-year-old two-time Olympic speed-skating gold medalist said in a statement, according to People.

While training for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver will remain his main priority, Ohno will make appearances on the Dancing with the Stars' tour in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, June 30; Hershey, PA on Monday, July 2; Bridgeport, CT., on Tuesday, July 3; Wilkes Barre, PA, on Thursday, July 5; and Atlantic City, NJ, on Friday, July 6.

Dancing with the Stars' aficionados with tickets to the select tour dates Ohno will perform at are no doubt thrilled to learn the fourth-season champ will be making an appearance, but those with seats to the Bridgeport, CT show also have another fourth-season fan favorite to look forward to seeing. 

Dancing with the Stars 4 sixth-place finisher and former Cheers star John Ratzenberger is scheduled to make a "guest appearance" on the Bridgeport, CT stop of the tour because it's his hometown, according to People.

The second cast of Dancing With The Stars - The Tour will also feature several other previously announced professional and celebrity competitors from the ABC show, including Julianne Hough, Onho's fourth-season professional partner; Season 4 second-place finishers Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson; Season 2 champs Drew Lachey and Cheryl Burke; Season 3 runner-ups Joey Lawrence and Edyta Sliwinska; Season 1's Joey McIntyre; and professional dancers Alec Mazo and Louis Van Amstel.
