Dancing with the Stars has its first-ever classical themed week, as the show’s nine couples try to outshine one another on the dance floor performing to traditional and modern classical music from world renowned musicians. Conducted by “Dancing with the Stars” band leader Harold Wheeler, a full 46-piece orchestra will be joined by multi-platinum mezzo soprano Katherine Jenkins and international violin virtuoso David Garrett, Monday, April 11 at 8:00 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.

On “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” Tuesday, April 12 at 9:00 pm ET/PT, special musical guest Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer Jennifer Hudson sings “Don’t Look Down” and “Feeling Good,” and a third couple is asked to leave the ballroom. Also, David Garrett returns to perform his rocking rendition of “Walk This Way” with the 46-piece orchestra and accompanied by the “Dancing with the Stars” Dance Troupe. This week the first “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance of the season gets underway with world renowned ballet dancers.

As part of Classical Week, the season’s first “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance features three of the most legendary ballet dancers in the world today, performing together on national television for the first time in a specially choreographed routine from “Swan Lake.” The stars of the number, who are also three of the crowning jewels of the Cuban National Ballet, will be the famous sister duo of Lorena and Lorna Feijoo, principles for the San Francisco Ballet and Boston Ballet. Starring alongside them will be Jose Manuel Carreno, now principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre.
