DANCING WITH THE STARS Presents 'Halloween Night'
The nine remaining celebrities have spent the week learning all of the bloodcurdling tricks that it will take to treat the viewers to some terrifyingly fun dances, as "Halloween Night" comes to "Dancing with the Stars," live on MONDAY, OCT. 29 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
The night kicks off with a spine-chilling opening number featuring the stars and pros dancing to a twist on the Halloween perennial "Purple People Eater," choreographed by the show's own Emmy®-winning Mandy Moore. In addition, there will be a shockingly good performance from "Dancing with the Stars: Live!," featuring the tour cast - WITNEY CARSON, EMMA SLATER, Jenna Johnson, GLEB SAVCHENKO, Artem Chigvintsev, Alan Bersten, Sasha Farber, Brandon Armstrong, Hayley Erbert and Britt Stewart. And look out for the Jabbawockeez, who is set to perform a horrifyingly entertaining dance. Billed as one of the country's best hip-hop dance groups, the Jabbawockeez are best known for their signature white masks and synchronized dancing, which all comes together with their unique brand of humor. But wait, there are even more treats! "The Ellen Degeneres Show"'s DJ and dance icon, Stephen "tWitch" Boss, will choreograph and dance to a delightfully eerie number based on a music video from Freeform's "31 Nights of Halloween," with his spectacular dancers, including his wife and former "Dancing with the Stars" pro, Allison Holker.
Each couple will perform a jazz, Argentine tango, salsa, tango, paso doblé, jive or contemporary dance.
