The new dances this week include several Sambas and Salsas, plus one Jazz routine for Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas. Ballas says he started in Jazz and loves it. Fans are already buzzing about this routine, set to “She’s Country” by Jason Aldean.
The other routine getting pre-show attention: Alfonso Ribiero and Witney Carson dancing a Samba to “Getting Jiggy Wit It” by Ribiero’s former “Fresh Prince” co-star, Will Smith.
