Lat week on “Dancing with the Stars” the couples danced to the music from Disney movies and no one went home.
This week it’s the halfway point of the season and the nine couples return to try and dance their way to next week and the annual Halloween show.
Getting the night of dancing started, Ally Brooke and Sasha dance a Quickstep to the Aha hit “Take on Me”. Sasha brought Ally’s mom to rehearsals for a visit.
