Looks like Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff won’t be getting her wish to partner up with actor John Stamos after all.

Stamos, who finished his Broadway run in Bye Bye Birdie in November, tweeted Monday that he isn’t cut out to jitterbug and tango his way to the top on the popular ABC show.

“I’m not doing Dancing with the Stars. Flattered to be asked,” he wrote. “I’m not a dancer. I’d put my foot in my mouth faster than John Mayer.”

Last month, Smirnoff told PEOPLE that 46-year-old Stamos had been approached about competing on DWTS and she was hoping he’d say yes.

“I have a wish to dance with John Stamos,” said Smirnoff, 32. “He could be a great dancer.”

The new season of DWTS begins March 22. –Catherine Donaldson-Evans John Shearer/WireImage
