The Bolero is a dance performed on Dancing with the Stars.

Often described as a slow, romantic, and smooth dance, the Bolero originated in Cuba during the late 18th century. It has a similar look to the Rumba, but the counting and figures are different.

This dance is not regularly performed on the show. It was introduced in season 9, but it was not performed again until season 15.

Performances on the showEdit

Season 9Edit

Four new dances were introduced to Dancing with the Stars in week 4 of season 9, one of them being the Bolero. This dance was performed by two couples: Natalie Coughlin and Alec Mazo, and Michael Irvin and Anna Demidova.

Season 15Edit

Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke performed the Bolero in week four, "Opponents' Choice Week". The dance was selected for them by Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy.

TriviaEdit

  • Most professionals on the show are unfamiliar with the Bolero for the most part. For their season 15 performance, Cheryl asked four other professionals to help her and Emmitt with their performance.
