FS1's Danielle Trotta is going dancing for a good cause

From the studio to the stage, FS1's Danielle Trotta is going dancing for a great cause.

The host of "NASCAR Race Hub" will be competing in the April 16 "Dancing with the Stars of Charlotte" competition benefiting the Carolina Breast Friends.

Since February, Trotta and her partner - Australian dancer Paul Montagese - have been training several hours per week ... sometimes as much as four hours at a time.

"It was an honor to be asked to participate as a celebrity dancer, and this has exceeded any expectations I had going in," said Trotta. "I had zero dance experience but wanted to challenge myself and compete for a great cause to help out the Pink House. I've gained new friends and a new skill set I'll carry with me."
