Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas did an “incredible” foxtrot on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They danced to the song “When You Wish Upon a Star” from the movie Pinocchio on the show’s “Disney Night.” Watch the video below of their performance.

Week in and week out, Stirling has been dancing strong routines under the creative guidance of Ballas. As a result, the violinist has a chance of taking home the Mirrorball Trophy. Twice so far this season, she’s been at the top of the leaderboard. And her performance last week helped land Stirling in the top three.

On last Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars,” Stirling and Ballas did a Viennese waltz to Mindy Gledhill’s “Anchor.” After the two effortlessly moved up and down the ballroom floor, Bruno Tonioli exclaimed that their routine was “magical” and “gorgeous.” He also called their performance “moving and inspiring.” Len Goodman praised them as well, saying, “It was great. I loved it.” And Carrie Ann Inaba simply told them “thank you” because it reminded her of why she loves dance and being a judge on the show. For their effort, Stirling and Ballas earned 26 out of a total of 30 points.

This week, Stirling, who previously performed as a musician on “Dancing With The Stars” before becoming a contestant, danced a foxtrot to the classic song “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio. Following the routine, Goodman said, “That was delightful… I absolutely loved it.” Inaba added, “This was classic… Just beautiful, incredible dancing.” And Tonioli felt, “It was like Fred Astaire meets Disney.” Corresponding to the judges’ comments, they received 28 out of a 30 points. Check out the video below of Stirling and Ballas’s “Disney Night” performance.
