October 11, 2010 08:26 AM by Candace Young


Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on ABC has another exciting episode coming up on October 17, when they travel to Wisconsin to build a new home for the Arboleda family. Joining the design team will be Dancing With the Stars dancers Mark Ballas, Tony Dolovani, Chelsie Hightower, and Derek Hough. Read on to find out about the dancing connection…

On the October 17 episode, Ty Pennington and his Extreme Makeover: Home Edition design team will be shown traveling to Wisconsin to help out the family of Rhex Arboleda, who has distinguished himself by establishing ‘Move To the Groove’, a program to help combat childhood obesity.  The Arboleda family was thrilled to see that Ty and his team were accompanied by a group of dancers from Dancing With the Stars on Door Knock Day.

Derek Hough, Chelsie Hightower, Mark Ballas, and Tony Dolovani of Dancing With the Stars joined the build to show support, and also take part in a dancing demolition of the Arboleda’s 70 year-old home, which was compromising the health and welfare of Rhex and Claire Arboleda and their five children.

Xzibit also worked with Rhex and his family during the episode to take his teaching techniques on the road. Rhex’s award-winning dance program, which gets both students and teachers on their feet and in shape,  is currently being used in three elementary schools.  Rhex has committed his life to teaching and passed his love of the arts on to his children.

In addition to Ty, the design team for the episode includes Xzibit, Michael Moloney, and Paige Hemmis.
