Each celebrity pair dances twice this week!

It’s the quarter finals of M-Net’s Dancing With The Stars SA and this week, the celebrity couples are being given double the chance to prove their dancing ability as each pair prepares to dazzle with not one, but two dance styles!

With the pressure mounting, emotions are bound to be running high as the grand finale of this foot stomping series draws closer. The panel of internationally-acclaimed Dancing With The Stars SA judges are also not allowing any room for error and have made it clear that by this stage of the competition, they expect the stars to deliver a focused, technique-driven performance, leaving their hearts and souls on the dance floor.

Over and above the stars putting their best foot forward this Sunday, (April 8) fans can also look forward to Roan Ash gracing the gleaming set for a special musical performance as well as a guest appearance by Afrikaans superstar singer Corlea Botha during the live results show!

The couples double the glitz and glam this week with the following dance styles:

Television actress Zola Nombona and her partner Tebogo Mashilo will perform a sultry Samba and classic Waltz. These dance styles will also be performed by Protea Netball Goal Shooter, Vanes-Mari du Toit and her partner, Johannes Radebe.

Screen and stage personality Frank Opperman will dazzle with Jeanné Swart as they perform a Vienesse Waltz and the Charleston.

Singer and songwriter Connell Cruise and his partner Marcella Solimeo will light up the dance floor with an American Smooth and a fiery Paso Doble.

Actor and model Eden Classens and his partner Ash-Leigh Hunter will showcase their skills with a Jive and Foxtrot.
