Mark Ballas Gives Teasers For Next Dances On Dancing With The Stars Week 8

Mark Ballas has penned a new blog at USA Today giving us an update on he and Katherine’s next dances. He also gives us a hint of who their dance pro might be for their Trio dance. More below. You can read about his reactions to last week’s dances, elimination, and see a fun picture at the link.

The Viennese waltz is probably one of my favorites of the ballroom dances, and I’m really excited we were given a beautiful piece of music. I have come up with a romantic, heart-wrenching concept to help us execute this dance and the overall concept definitely has a Titanic/Romeo and Juliet vibe.

Katherine is doing really well with both dances. I had them both choreographed and finished by Thursday. That’s early and, for me, it’s a first. Now we are just cleaning up the routines, adding refinement and conformation of choreography.

The Latin round promises to be fun as there is a new challenge for all of the couples. It’s called the “Trio” round, meaning we can recruit another professional dancer for that routine. I am thrilled that we got the pro I wanted. I can’t tell you who it is but let’s just say this: I hope this pro helps us find a lucky pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! And maybe this experience will motivate the mystery dancer to finally sign up on Twitter.

So, who do you think the pro is? I think we all know. :)
