Ghosts, spiders and really cool costumes filled the dance studio. The songs were all ghost and magic toned. However, underneath all the cool Halloween decorations and costumes, laid one ultimate goal for the dancers: to dance two great dancers and to gain scores high enough to keep you in the competition.
Yes, the dancers, again, had to dance two dances. First, they got to perform one individual Halloween theme dance to show the audience how far they have grown in their dancing skill, now that it is week seven. Then they had to compete in a team dance with the team scores added to their individual scores.
How did the dancers do?
David Arquette and Kym Johnson: They performed a Cha-Cha-Cha. Judge Len stated that the dance was filled with lots of tricks and lots of treats. Bruno stated that you are a natural at turning tricks. They scored a 24.
J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff: They performed a Tango. Judge Bruno stated that you missed it a few times. Judge Carrie Ann stated that it was perfect toned. It was a well done performance. They scored a 25.
Nancy Grace and Triston McManus: They performed a Jive. Judge Carrie Len stated that certain dances suit and certain dances don’t. This wasn’t the dance for you. Judge Bruno stated the devil got you. The footing was devilish. They scored a 21.
Rob Karashian and Cheryl Burke: They performed a Tango. Judge Len stated that he did a traffic job. Judge Carrie Ann stated that it was his best dance so far. They scored a 25.
