'Dancing With The Stars': Week 3 takes you to the prom

April 1, 2013 12:00:00 AM PDT
In week three of "Dancing With The Stars," the show takes viewers to the prom Monday night, which means the dancers will be channeling their inner teenagers.

Well, all expect maybe one of them.

"I didn't have a prom in England, sorry," said "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump.

Monday's show will feature a little bit of everything, including the cha-cha, three Viennese waltzes, plus a paso doble, a rumba, a salsa, a contemporary number and a jive.

Dancers Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy, who led the show last week, will have an emotional twist to the prom theme. Coleman's grandmother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and the 16-year-old performer's mom asked Chmerkovskiy if he could come up with a dance to honor her.

"We're building everything around her when she was that age, we're taking it back to that time, and we're creating a dress that is a copy of the dress that she wore to prom," Chmerkovskiy said.

While many of the celebrities, including Zendaya, have work commitments on their schedules, she's got something else on her calendar too: high school.

"There's a lot going on for me. I'm a teenager, I'm going to school, I still have to do school every day, I'm still a Disney girl so there's still Disney things I have to do, events and all that good stuff," she said. "But just the fact that I'm doing it all and it's all working together, coming together and making something magical, and I'm having fun at the same time, it's all great."

Coleman, Chmerkovskiy and the 10 other couples take the dance floor at 8 p.m. on ABC7.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
