‘DANCING WITH THE STARS’ SWITCH-UP WEEK!
This incredible man continues to amaze me.
When the show started five weeks ago, I liked his first dance, his demeanor and his story.
Yet, I thought, he won’t get too far in. I based this on the fact that Nyle is completely deaf.
He doesn’t even feel vibrations!
As weeks have gone by he continues to prove that in spite of “limitation” (which he totally seems to cast aside very easily), Nyle is so talented.
He shows his beautiful soul and spirit through his eyes, his amazing expressions.
I’m so glad he has proven me completely wrong.
I’m totally rooting for him!
Enjoy Nyle and Sharna’s waltz from “Switch-Up Night” in DWTS.
NYLE DIMARCO AND SHARNA BURGESS WERE AMAZING
Nyle DiMarco and Sharna Burgess were amazing on Week 5 of Dancing With The Stars, Season 22!
Week 5 of DWTS was Switch-Up Week, and the new partners had so much fun. Viewers voted and chose the partners and dances. Maks Chmerkovskiy was the guest judge. And James Bay performed a few songs.

Nyle DiMarco faces a massive challenge every week on Dancing with the Stars when he performs without hearing any music. However, the deaf America’s Next Top Model winner and pro partner Peta Murgatroyd have done an incredible job of overcoming this obstacle. They’ve carefully crafted a method of communicating that works for them, but this week Nyle had to start all over again.
Last night, April 17, was Switch-Up Night on Dancing with the Stars, which means that a new pro dancer will have to learn how to lead Nyle through a dance to a song that he can’t hear. However, Nyle doesn’t seem too concerned about getting a new teacher, and he even took some time from his busy schedule to teach Tyler Oakley how to flirt in American Sign Language (ASL).
PureDWTS revealed who Nyle DiMarco’s partner would be for Switch-Up Week, and the DWTS pro has experience with creative coaching. Nyle was paired with Sharna Burgess, the fan-favorite pro who had to completely change the way she choreographed routines when she was partnered with double amputee Noah Galloway two seasons ago.
Sharna proved that she was up for the challenge by helping Noah finish in the final three during Season 20.
You could say that Sharna and Noah were redefining dance with their innovative routines, and “Redefining Dance” just happens to be Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd’s DWTS team name. Perhaps fans of the show had Sharna Burgess’ experience with Noah Galloway in mind when they voted for her to be partnered up with Nyle. Fans also voted for which style of dance that Sharna and Nyle will perform together, and they chose the Viennese Waltz.
Nyle and Sharna are both coming off of a high after Disney Night. Nyle fully embraced being Tarzan, and his loincloth costume likely helped him swing a few extra votes his way. He and Peta finished just one point behind Sharna and NFL star Antonio Brown, who had a real breakthrough when they scored three 9s and an 8 for their Aladdin-inspired jazz routine.
