Swayze, the star of "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost," died Monday of pancreatic cancer at the age of 57. He had made a guest appearance on "'Dancing with the Stars" in its first season.
In the tribute, the dancers will perform a three-song medley featuring Swayze's "She's Like the Wind," 'Unchained Melody" from the hit film "Ghost" and the classic "Time of My Life" from "Dirty Dancing," ABC said in a news release.
