LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Pro dancer Mark Ballas was treated to something the audience was hoping for on this week’s “Dancing with the Stars” premiere – face time with former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
The “DWTS” star traveled to Alaska this week where he met up with partner Bristol Palin’s mom.
“Me and Mama Palin… Alaska is awesome,” Mark Tweeted, posting a photo of himself and the former Governor.
The pro also posted multiple shots of himself and Bristol enjoying Alaska’s scenery.
Mark’s trip north wasn’t just about rehearsing for next week’s performance on the hit ABC series. He also performed an acoustic set of his music in Anchorage on Thursday night.
Sarah might have been a no-show on this week’s “Dancing,” but earlier this week Bristol told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson that her political figure mom would be making an appearance in the ballroom.
“She couldn’t make it, scheduling and timing didn’t work out,” Bristol told Access on Monday. “But, she’ll be here next week.”
