Dancing With the Stars Juniors celebrated Halloween last night, and Ariana Greenblatt channeled her Disney Channel roots. The Stuck in the Middle actress and her partner Artyon Celestine danced their little hearts out to “Ways to Be Wicked” from the fan-fave DCOM Descendants 2, performing the Paso Doble (which Ariana decided to call “Picasso” instead). Ariana dressed up as Mal, naturally – while her partner rocked a Carlos costume.
“Thank you all for the kind words, love and support for our Paso Doble to #descendants2 So many ways to be wicked and to the kindest @kennyortegablog who took time out from editing #descendants3 to come out and support me. My #sitm #disneyfamily came out as well @isaakpresley @cerinavincent, @kaymais [my heart] is full and I’m very proud of #teambrandon @artyoncelestine @brandon_armstrong94 I think we did a sharp powerful dance. Finally thank you to the judges who just motivated the heck out of me for next week! Prepare Yourselves #dwtsjuniors,” the star wrote in an Instagram post, giving shout-outs to her Disney fam for coming out to support her on the big night.
Yep, that’s right. Her Stuck in the Middle TV mom Cerina Vincent – along with her on-screen siblings, Isaak Presley, 16, and Kayla Maisonet, 19 – came out to support their girl. Even Descendants director Kenny Ortega, 68, stepped out for the event!
