DWTS to Honor Patrick Swayze With Tribute

Patrick Swayze is best known for his role in Dirty Dancing, so it’s only fitting that Dancing With the Stars is paying tribute to him. They have something planned for their September 23rd results show, according to People.

Show producer Conrad Green says, “We have some very fond memories of [Patrick] coming to help us our when we were a tiny little show way back when.”

He continues, “He was one of the few people to integrate dance with being an A-list actor. He inspired many people and many of our pros to dance. We want to honor the great moments he’s brought to film by getting our dancers to do their interpretation to some music from his films.”

Patrick made a cameo back in 2005 on DWTS, and taught contestant John O’Hurley some dance moves during a rehearsal. He then showed his support for the show by sitting in the audience at the season finale.

This is a great way to honor Patrick and pay tribute to the way we will all remember him. Check out the tribute below...
