Shawn Johnson may have won Dancing With the Stars in 2009, but that doesn't mean she's mastered the art of being graceful.

“I ran into a pole today dancing," the Olympian-turned-hoofer confessed to Celebuzz at Monday's Perks of Being a Wallflower premiere in Hollywood. "That was fun. I'm kind of a klutz, so hopefully that won't come out when they’re shooting."

What is Johnson filming?

The DWTS all-stars edition, which will see her pair with pro partner Derek Hough.

The terrific twosome are already instilling fear in their competitors: Cheryl Burke recently admitted that she's intimidated by Johnson's moves. But she needn't worry.

“I feel the same way about her," Johnson said. "I think she is one of our top competitors, but the whole cast is going to be hard this year. There's so many great people and it's very challenging."

Who does Johnson see as her fiercest competitor?

“Probably Gilles [Marini]," she said of the actor, who came finished second, behind Johnson, in 2009. "He’s out with a vengeance and he’s got something to prove."
