Mark Ballas Writes Of His New Dance With Aly Raisman And Their Team Dance

Mark Ballas writes all about last week’s dances from the Samba with Aly to he and Derek’s group number at USA Today. He also gives us some teasers on he and Aly’s Fox Trot as well as the Team Dance.

Derek and I put many hours into this piece, from the choreography to the visuals. It felt so great to perform and I’m really grateful to DWTS for letting us do something modern and different. My Twitter feed exploded after the piece, with nothing but supportive loving tweets from the fans. I’m always happy to give them something fresh and new for them to bite into. If you missed it, you can see it at

This week, we have the foxtrot and it’s also Stevie Wonder Week .That has me really hyped up as I am a huge fan of his music. The song we are using is also one of my personal faves and is one that was played in my house many times as a child.

We also have the team dance which has been fun as well. I can’t tell you who our teammates are yet but it promises to be entertaining! The dance we have is samba, so Aly and I will have a leg up, since we just did it last week. The song is a classic too, so if you’re a Stevie fan you will dig it. This week promises to be a night of classic music and dance. I know you are all gonna love it. Everyone loves Stevie.
