Week 7: Halloween in the Ballroom

By Jim Donnelly | Oct 28th, 2014

Halloween came a little early as the ballroom was abuzz with all sorts of creepy, crawly creatures. We also welcomed back the most frightening judge in the land with Len Goodman. As for the stars, they did their best to scare up some high scores during the biggest Halloween dance party on the planet. Let’s get to the horrifyingly fun highlights.

Happy Halloween Routine: Bethany was back in business with partner Derek as the two of them teamed for a near-perfect Paso. The only judge who didn’t go double digits after this highly-theatrical show stopper was Len. We told you he was scary. But not even his lone nine could keep Bethany’s routine from being the dance of the night!

One Proud Papa: Alfonso lets his feet do the talking when he’s tearing it up on the dance floor. This week was no exception as he did a content-filled rumba with Witney that wowed the crowd. The cheers Alfonso got for his dance paled in comparison to the ovation that came when he announced that he and his wife are expecting another baby. To celebrate this momentous news, take a look at his fantastic dance!

The Dancing Dead: Sadie and Mark have been nothing if not theatrical this season. Their Halloween dance was no exception. An eerie mist engulfed the dance floor as this dancing duo became surrounded by some undead dancers. It’s fitting that there were zombies in the house as there was a killer criticism from the judges after all the dancing was done.

Team Creepy: It was team dance time as Alfonso & Witney, Sadie & Mark, Antonio & Cheryl, and Tommy & Peta joined forces to dance to the Time Warp again. See all the Rocky Horror-filled fun right here!

Team Itsy-Bitsy: As entertaining as Team Creepy’s creep routine was, it wasn’t enough to win the night. The combination of Bethany & Derek, Janel & Val, Lea & Artem, and Michael & Emma spun a web of fun with their terrific team dance.

Scared Silly: Halloween is time for tricks and treats. The treats came in the form of another week of fine routines. The tricks came in the form of some scares that were doled out to both stars and pros. See who got spooked in the video below and have yourself a very Happy Halloween!
