Here’s what you need to know:
Ballas is ready to bring the creativity to Season 31
Several “Dancing With the Stars” fans absolutely love Ballas because he’s incredibly talented and his routines tend to be second to none. He’s done some incredible choreography over the years and he really enjoys it.
“How does it feel to be choreographing dances again?” someone asked in their recent Q&A.
“It feels good. You know, my favorite thing about the show has always been the creative process, so I’m really excited to get back into that headspace,” Ballas said.
“I’ve only put together two routines so far, week one and a little bit of our second week. But hopefully there’s more to come,” he added.
Ballas teased that there is a lot more to come.
“Can we expect some super creative Mark dances again this season?” asked one fan. Ballas needed no words to let his followers know he’s ready to bring it. Instead, he looked at the camera, took his sunglasses off his eyes – slowly, for dramatic effect – and raised an eyebrow.
Fans need to get used to Ballas’ long hair
If you haven’t kept up with Ballas during his Dancing With the Stars sabbatical, you probably aren’t used to his long hair. However, Ballas loves his look and has no intention of cutting his hair short.
During his Q&A, someone wrote: “Get a hair cut?” Ballas didn’t provide a verbal response, instead playing Bishop Bullwinkle’s song “Hell to the Naw Naw” and removing his bun to let his long hair flow. He shook his head and straightened his long, luscious locks to show them off.
It’s definitely a new look for those who haven’t seen Ballas since his ballroom days, but he’s rocking it and he has no plans to change things.
Fans seem to have mixed reactions to Ballas’ long hair and have expressed it on Facebook and Instagram. However, Ballas doesn’t seem to care too much about how people think of his looks. He has his eye on the prize and is ready to lead D’Amelio to the finals.
