ALL FOUR ONE
Bunny ears at the ready! Dancing with the Stars's Elizabeth Berkley and Val Chmerkovskiy use their good humor after capping off an intense rehearsal Sept. 12.

GETTING TO THE POINT
No fist pumps here: Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi perfects her dance stance with a little help from pro partner Sasha Farber. "Point that toe :) @snooki @DancingABC," he Tweeted on Sept. 12.
STRIKE A POSE
It seems as if Bill Nye and partner Tyne Stecklein already have their road to the mirror-ball trophy mapped out to an exact science, thanks to an impressive finish during a Sept. 4 routine. "Shall we dance? #DWTS," Nye pondered on Instagram.
In addition to hitting high notes on Glee, Amber Riley scores a look of approval from partner Derek Hough during a Sept. 6 practice session. And the hard work has been paying off for the pair. "Learned a new dance today, my legs feel like noodles! Great workout :) having so much fun pushing myself past what I thought my limits was!" Riley posted on Twitter.
As he graduates from Disney to DWTS, former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu doesn't lose his focus while taking a quick breather with partner Karina Smirnoff. "'Only 5 days left! That's only 120 hours! Gotta focus!' @karina_smirnoff 'Keep calm and carry on :)' #letskickitupanotch," he wrote on Instagram Sept. 11.
Someone hit the snooze button! The cha-cha takes a toll on Pretty Little Liars actor Brant Daugherty, who catches up on some shut-eye with partner Peta Murgatroyd on Sept. 11. "Nap time @petamurgatroyd #exhausted #chachakickinourbutts," he shared.
"Hey @CherylBurke remember that time I only kinda sorta sucked at dancing, but made it look good anyway? Hahaha ?#DWTS," Jack Osbourne joked about his turn on the floor on Sept. 10.
