â€œWe have some very fond memories of [the late actor] coming to help us our when we were a tiny little show way back when,â€ Dancingâ€™s executive producer Conrad Green said.
â€œHe was one of the few people to integrate dance with being an A-list actor,â€ she continued. â€œHe inspired many people and many of our pros to dance. We want to honor the great moments heâ€™s brought to film by getting our dancers to do their interpretation to some music from his films.â€
