The Communities disco ball is polished and shiny, and we have our dancing shoes on!
We’re ready to host our first live Dancing With The Stars chat for Season 16 on Monday night at 8 p.m. Eastern. Let’s see how these newbies perform in the ballroom when the bright lights hit the stage and the orchestra plays.
Who shows early talent? Who is likely to go home first next week?
