Dancing with the Stars Season 12 Week 2: Couples Dance Quickstep or Jive

ABC Dancing with the Stars Season 12 Performance Show Week 1On tonight’s Dancing with the Stars performance show of week 2, the 11 couples will perform a requisite quickstep or a jive. The quickstep is a faster version of the foxtrot but with its own distinct style, and the jive is a variation of the jitterbug. These are two fast tempo ballroom dances that require lots of energy and precise footwork. Everyone needs to be on their game. So who’s dancing which tonight? Here is the full breakdown, courtesy of the Twitter pages of our stars and pros:

Quickstep: Jive:
Wendy Williams & Tony Dovolani Sugar Ray & Anna Trebunskaya
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis Van Amstel Petra Nemcova & Dmitri Chaplin
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower Mike Catherwood & Lacey Schwimmer
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson

Both of these dances require dancers to be light on their feet, and because the footwork must be clean and neat, expect the judges to make foot placement and technique a focus of their commentaries. Watch out for Chelsea and Mark tonight the jive is one of Mark’s favorites so expect a great showing from this couple. Pro dancer Lacey is not only fantastic at the jive, she is the lightest and fastest on the feet the show has ever seen. Will partner Mike Catherwood be able to keep up?

Tonight’s 2 hour live performance show of Dancing with the Stars airs at 8p.m. (EST) on ABC.
