If you’ve ever watched Disney Night on Dancing With The Stars, you’ll understand when we admit that in researching this article we willfully traveled down an endless path of Dancing with the Stars performances that resulted in hours of productivity lost forever, but it was worth it. And for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of watching a Disney Night dance, you’ve been forewarned. In no particular order, here are our favorite Dancing With the Stars Disney Night dances of all time:
Normani and Val’s Paso to “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan
There are several things we love about this dance, from the special performance by Donny Osmond (who was Shang’s singing voice in Mulan, as well as the Dancing With the Stars Season 9 champion), to the perfect execution by Normani and Val.
Jordan and Lindsay’s Foxtrot to “You’re Welcome” from Moana
Okay, sure we’re a bit biased because we’re huge Jordan Fisher fans, but you can’t argue with a perfect 30 from the judges!
Laurie and Val’s Jive to “DuckTales” from DuckTales
Woo-oo! The perfect combination of cute and skillful, this dance is the epitome of infectious. Also, bonus points for the stage fall into a pile of money.
Frankie and Witney’s Argentine Tango to “Angelica” from Pirates of the Caribbean
With this dance we got to see an all-new side of Frankie Muniz. Obviously, both Frankie and Witney were meant for the pirate’s life!
Jodie and Keo’s Cha Cha to “Try Everything” from Zootopia
Catchy song, check. Great costumes, check. An enthusiastic dance team with great chemistry, check and check. And the cherry on top: a CGI Gazelle (Shakira) appearance, check.
Rashad and Emma’s Foxtrot to “Evermore” from Beauty and the Beast
Not only is this dance beautiful, but we love how pro football player Rashad Jennings proves that dance is both a graceful and powerful sport.
Simone and Sasha’s Contemporary to “How Far I’ll Go” From Moana
This dance is all about sheer power, and we’re absolutely mesmerized by Simone’s ability to add some gymnastic elements into this iconic Disney Night dance.
Nick and Peta Jazz to “I’ve Got No Strings” from Pinocchio
Sure, not every dance can earn a perfect score, but we appreciate the effort that’s being given here. And that’s the great thing about dance—everyone can do it!
