Fans of the ABC hit show, Dancing With the Stars, are anxiously awaiting the announcement of next season’s cast. But what viewers might not know is that the Dancing With The Stars set will have a completely new look for season 13. Keep reading to find out all the makeover details!
Yes, that’s right your favorite show is upgrading its ballroom. According to TMZ, ABC is remodeling the Dancing With Stars set by spending over $3 million on the makeover. Not that the set was shabby before, but the success of the show has definitely given the network motivation to make improvements. A rep from Dancing With The Stars commented to TMZ that they are, “very excited” about the improvements to the set.
The $3 million dollars will be put to good use to enhance the current set. You know the giant staircase the cast walks down at the beginning of each show? Don’t worry it is staying, but it’s being enhanced. The new staircase will actually be able to divide into two halves, revealing the orchestra pit. As for the dance floor, which is currently just a hardwood floor, will also be redone. The stage for the dancers will now be an elevated platform! Plus, those lucky enough to be in the audience at the show will have a better view. New triple-tiered balcony-style seating will replace the old bleacher type seats.
Sounds like a lot of great improvements, but we still want to know who will be dancing on the new set. Tune in to ABC on August 29th to find out which stars will have the opportunity to break in the new dance floor.
