SAN DIEGO, October 26, 2015 – Tonight’s routines on “Dancing With The Stars” get a little darker and more dangerous for a Halloween themed night of competition on Monday.

You don’t need to wear a costume to join our weekly Live Online Chat, but we won’t mind if you want to start your Halloween fun a few days early. (scroll below chat for more information, dance assignments)

Freaky footwork: Halloween Week on “Dancing With The Stars,” Monday, 8 p.m.

In addition to the individual routines featuring the Paso Doble, Argentine Tango, waltzes and a Foxtrot, we get this season’s first Team Dances. The two team captains are last week’s two highest scoring pros, Nick Carter and Bindi Irwin. Bindi’s team will dance to the theme song from the movie “Ghostbusters,” which most people know. Nick’s team drew the theme song from the movie “A Nightmare Before Christmas,” which isn’t as familiar.

The costumes and makeup departments pull out all the stops for the Halloween routines, and the sets look like horror movies comes to life – in a good way.

Join Communities tonight at 8 p.m. ET to see how the performances stack up, and who gets a scare and goes home.
