Week after week, all-around Olympic gold medalist Suni Lee brings her gymnastics skills to Dancing With the Stars performances — remember when she did a front flip in heels and a one-handed front walkover? For the Oct. 18 episode, stars showcased Grease-themed dances, and Lee and partner Sasha Farber took on the Charleston, set to “Born to Hand Jive” by Sha Na Na.
Lee channeled her inner Cha-Cha DiGregorio, and the routine featured iconic moves from the Rydell High school dance. There was also a high-flying backflip and a memorable pie-in-the-face ending for Farber (yes, that’s whipped cream!) as an ode to the carnival scene in Grease. As for the back tuck, Farber tossed Lee in the air, and she landed with ease before continuing on through the choreography.
This Charleston scored these two a solid 36 out of 40, and we’re jiving right along with them! Watch the full energy-packed performance above.
