When “Dancing With The Stars” kicks off its 12th season in March, Long Islanders can cheer on two of their own.

Professional wrestler Chis Jericho, 41, took his stage name from the town he was born in, and will be stepping out with enviable dance partner Cheryl Burke. Many Island residents may know the spiky-haired, blue-eyed wrestler by his nickname “The King of Bling-Bling.”

The original “Karate Kid” Ralph Macchio will also be kicking up his heels on the show. Macchio was born in Huntington and graduated from Half Hollow Hills West High School in Dix Hills in 1979.

The season begins March 21.
