Patrick Swayze, who passed away this week at the age of 57, appeared on the first season of Dancing with the Stars. He showed up for an episode and helped friend John O’Hurley learn a few moves.
Therefore, in honor of the actor, the ABC series will honor his memory on September 23.
“We have some very fond memories of [the late actor] coming to help us our when we were a tiny little show way back when,” said producer Conrad Green. “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.”
