“Dancing With The Stars” will make up for its abbreviated competition last week with a spectacular showcase featuring a partnership with Cirque de Soleil as couples perform Cirque-inspired routines in Week 4.
All of the assigned ballroom dances are inspired by a specific Cirque du Soleil show, using a song from the show. Featured productions include KÀ, Zumanity, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities, PARAMOUR, Michael Jackson ONE, “O,” The Beatles LOVE, Mystère and La Nouba.
Join our Live Online Fan Chat as we watch, and we’ll decide together whether we like what we’re seeing.
No one will be eliminated Monday. There will be a full two-hour recap show on Tuesday.
ABC did not announce the dance styles. They have been assembled from the stars’ comments in interviews and on social media, and a hat tip to the indispensable fan website PureDWTS, which you must follow if you’re a true fan.
