Ballroom and Latin night are coming at us on Dancing With The Stars next week!

The show will have back-to-back nights with two couples going home on Monday and Tuesday, plus two dances from each of the couples.

Alan Bersten dished to JustJared.com about his next dances with partner Debbie Gibson.

“We have two dances, which is unheard of,” he laughs. “We went from learning one dance in two and a half weeks for the premiere to learning two dances in six days. We have limited time, and we just have to be very confident and very determined during rehearsals.”

Alan reveals that their “first dance is a Quickstep, which is a huge difference from our Foxtrot last week. it’s going to be high energy and very explosive. We want to show to the energetic side of Debbie.”

And their next is an Argentine Tango.

“[Judge] Bruno [Tonioli] also mentioned that he also wants to see a naughty Debbie…well, on Tuesday, we have a very sexual Argentine tango and it’s very sensual,” Alan teases.

“We’re dancing to a beautiful song called ‘Havana’ and…Bruno is going to get what he wants.”

Stay tuned for the full list of songs, dances and details of next week’s shows!

DWTS Pro Alan Bersten Dishes On His First Performance With Debbie Gibson (Exclusive)

Alan Bersten chatted with JustJared.com about his first week as a pro, and it went amazing!

The Dancing With the Stars pro dancer dished about letting out that deep breath he’d been holding in enjoying every moment, and how he’s working with partner Debbie Gibson.

“There’s a huge sigh of relief, actually,” Alan told us about getting through his first show as a pro. “It felt amazing to dance officially as a pro with my own partner.”

He adds, “I think [Debbie] killed it and just left everything out on the floor. She really got to sit back and enjoy it. That’s the most important thing is enjoying the dance.”

One thing they’ll be working on in rehearsals is definitely shoulders.

“[Judge] Bruno [Tonioli] mentioned that her shoulders are really high and Debbie, she feels the emotion, whatever it be, and uses it and all those emotions are going to her shoulders,” Alan says. “It’s like she’s happy, which is a good feeling to have, but we have work on keeping her shoulders down and keeping her frame strong.”

“[And] Now that the judges have mentioned it, that’s exactly what they’re going to be looking for every week.”
