SAN DIEGO, September 29, 2014 – Get out the popcorn and dim the lights, “Movie Week” is back on “Dancing With The Stars” Season 19.
The last time DWTS had a movie theme night in Season 13, the best dance was the Tango routine to “Psycho” by Derek Hough and Ricki Lake. Can Hough and Season 19 partner Bethany Mota do it again with their Jazz routine?
New dance styles show up this week including the Viennese Waltz, Argentine Tango and standard Tango, Paso Doble, and Contemporary, along with the return of the Cha Cha Cha, Foxtrot, and Jazz.
New judges show up too. Actor Kevin Hart will sit in Len Goodman’s chair this week. His qualifications? Don’t be silly.
Communities Digital News will host its weekly live online chat during the show. Join us and fans across the U.S. where everyone gets a chance to comment and judge.
Songs show up from the films “Back To The Future,” “Rocky III,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Up!,” “The Great Gatsby,” “Austin Powers,” and the most beloved dance movie of all time.
“Dancing With the Stars” airs Monday night, September 29, at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific Time on the ABC Television Network. Join our live chat as we discuss, diss and cheer on our favorites. Ballroom opens at 7:45pm.
