About Dancing With The Stars Season 29

Dancing With The Stars Season 29 made its debut on the 14th of September, 2020 on ABC network. But due to the global pandemic, this season did not have a live audience to witness the show. The show was divided into eleven specific episodes which ran across a span of ten weeks. The show is about professional dancers and celebrities and how well they complement each other in dancing. A much loved concept by the audience, isn’t it? 

Every week the celebrities left behind their comfort zones to enter into hours of rehearsals only to master their dance styles and techniques. With their best efforts put in and with their dancing partners, they perform in front of ballroom experts to compete for the trophy.
