The new season of Dancing with the Stars is finally here!

On the season 23 premiere Monday night, the pro dancers are showing off their impressive moves during an opening dance number shot last week at Griffith Park in Los Angeles – and PEOPLE has the exclusive First Look.

Check out pros Allison Holker, Alan Bersten and Sasha Farber, who look more than ready (and fierce!) in their coordinating red-and-black costumes.

Meanwhile, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Cheryl Burke and Derek Hough – who are all returning to the ballroom this season – reunite for a group photo.

And Artem Chigvintsev, Emma Slater, Lindsay Arnold and Farber are all spotted taking a quick break.

“It was such an exhausting but amazing day,” Burke tells PEOPLE of filming the sequence.

She continues: “It’s been so great working with both some amazing pros that I’ve known for years and some incredible newer pros who have brought in such great, new energy to the show.”

Dancing with the Stars season 23 premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
