Below is what we know so far for the new dances and Team Dances for Dancing With The Stars Season 20 Week 6 and note that it’s “Spring Break” Week.
ETA: We have our first song spoiler! Though I can’t say it’s exactly SPRING breaky… -Court-
ETA2: Figured I’d go ahead and confirm this one, since they were already strongly hinting at it in the live stream…oh, and apparently the teams have names now (pix below). Sure hope Rumer’s team didn’t give themselves a headache coming up with such an original team name
ETA3: Court, you were right. Carrie Ann is calling next week’s theme “Spring Break Extravaganza” according to her new blog.
ETA4: We don’t know what belongs to who, but we know the remaining dances for next week are (2) jives, a samba, a salsa, and a Viennese waltz. Discuss.
ETA5: Well we managed to fill in the blanks based on what Just Jared posted. I think the music folks at DWTS and I have very different ideas of what a “spring break” song is, though – some of these seem more like summer break songs, and some seem…dumb.
ETA6: Per Artem in the live rehearsal stream, Patti has apparently switched to quickstep. Hmmmm…perhaps the jive was too hard for her to barely move to?
ETA7: Not to be outdone, Riker has decided to change songs. See below. :::rolls eyes::: When can we go back to the good old days where you danced to what they gave you. That certainly told us who our choreographers were. Although, before that – years ago – the pros chose ALL the music. The pendulum swings… ~Heidi

DWTS Sharna Burgess Blogs On Disney Night, Her New Dance With Noah Galloway, And Team Rehearsals Last Night
Be sure to see and read Sharna Burgess’ new blog at Closer Weekly. She posted some really sweet pics. She also write of how she prepared Noah Galloway for Disney Night. They dance a Rumba next! Here is take on Team rehearsals last night….
We finished team rehearsal last night and — take my word for it! — this will be a tough dance. Both teams are super strong. I love our song the most and what we started to create was so much fun! Our other dance is a Rumba, which I am seriously looking forward to rehearsing.
Robert Herjavec writes about Disney Night on Dancing With The Stars and how he got off on the wrong foot last. Here is more from Entertainment Weekly….
We stepped into the magical world of Disney this week. The ballroom was hyped with all of the characters, the familiar music, and the stunning animation. Kym and I danced the quick step to Mary Poppins’ “Step in Time,” and let’s just say the quick step won. We were really disappointed to get 6s—our lowest scores to date—but I get it. We are halfway through this challenge and the competition is getting fierce. I may not be a natural dancer, but I’ve learned a lot and I can do better. I got off on the wrong foot (literally, not metaphorically!), and it went downhill from there. I still don’t know what we are dancing to next week… but after a fun group rehearsal last night and some time to reflect, we will come back and be better than ever.
To read more including a very special fan he met last night, visit Entertainment Weekly.
I’m loving this Jazz dance. What a way to go out. Thanks to @idolXFactor1 for getting this coverage to us so fast….
Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted about the Dancing With The Stars Anniversary Special last night and news about her being there with Kelly Monaco. She also posted a date for April 21st. Note: this date isn’t “official” yet. Just something to keep in mind. Thanks to Lois for the heads up on this tweet.
ETA: Per our source, the Anniversary Special is, indeed, airing on this coming Tuesday, April 21st…but it may not be TOTALLY live. Source thinks some couples may have pre-taped their segments.
ETA2: I apologize – message got lost in translation. Show is getting TAPED this coming Tuesday, April 21, but it won’t actually AIR until May 7. Apparently there was even confusion from those behind the scenes on what was going to be happening this week – Deep Throat was under the impression that they would be doing two live shows this coming week, until Rob clarified. #miscommunicationevenoccursbehindthescenes
ETA3: Vogue here. Is it possible Maria Menounos, Amy Purdy, and Amy Riley (all Derek Hough partners) are filming or doing something for the 10th Anniversary show. They were seen the rehearsal parking lot this weekend…
ETA4: Amy might have been at the studios to film something with Noah Galloway too?
A lot of work was put into Dancing With The Stars last night. I was gasping right from the beginning, were you? Beautiful and a magical wonder…
So, how are you all feeling about Disney night? I thought it was one of the best productions we’ve seen on the show in a long time. Well done to everyone who made it all happen!!
With that said, here are the scores for last night’s dances…
Rumer Willis & Valentin Chmerkovskiy – 39
Nastia Liukin & Derek Hough – 38
Riker Lynch & Allison Holker – 38
Willow Shields & Mark Ballas – 34
Noah Galloway & Sharna Burgess – 28
Patti LaBelle & Artem Chigvintsev – 27
Suzanne Somers & Tony Dovolani – 27 (Eliminated)
Chris Soules & Witney Carson – 27
Robert Herjavec & Kym Johnson – 24
So, today we don’t have a lot of media. George of ABC7 and JC Rubio of Afterbuzz TV tweeted there will be no interviews this week except for the eliminated couple (because the teams went straight to rehearsals), but, ABC7 has recap and some beautiful photos. Entertainment Tonight and The Daily Mail also have some fun photos of the night.
And below is Access Hollywood and Afterbuzz TV with the eliminated couple Tony and Suzanne. E online has an interview and media posted as well. Suzanne said she felt like a “winner” and that she is. I’m so glad she did the show.
Stay tuned and keep checking back for more media through out the day….
ETA: Below is some PopTVDotCom coverage after the show. Read more..
