For the spooky Halloween week on “Dancing With the Stars,” Ricki Lake and her pro partner Derek Hough
drew the paso doble, which was a fun dance to put to spooky music. Their number was “Beautiful Nightmare” and it was an apropos title. The dance was great.

Bruno says, “It was like a blizzard of passion and fear. Another incredible performance.”  Carrie Ann praises her gorgeous shaping, but cautions her to watch her shoulders coming up. Len adds, “Lovely. Quick, precise footwork. I love the elevation, the twist turn.”

Ricki received three 9s for a total of 27, the highest score before the group dances. What did you think of her paso doble?
