The duo was back and healthy just in time for ‘Disney Heroes‘ night
The dancing professional, 37, and Peloton instructor, 34, took the stage for the first time since announcing they’d been diagnosed with COVID-19. They were back and healthy again just in time to be part of the two-night “Disney Heroes” event where they accomplished a spectacular performance to “Stand Out” from “A Goofy Movie.”
Host Tyra Banks immediately addressed the elephant in the room, asking if they were feeling pressure being back on the stage after battling the coronavirus.
The duo ultimately went on to score a 27 out of 40 for their dance and will have another crack at the world of Disney on Tuesday’s episode.
Burke was the first to inform followers that she had tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing some mild symptoms. A few days later, Rigsby too announced that he had tested positive. That week, they were judged on a pre-filmed rehearsal of their performance. The following week, they competed from home in a less-than-ideal scenario.
Cheryl Burke and Cody Rigsby returned to ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 30 for ‘Disney Heroes’ night after sitting out the prior week due to positive coronavirus tests.
The two eventually were able to reunite after their respective quarantines on Saturday for a rehearsal of their Disney performances. Two days prior, she announced that she had ended her quarantine and was just waiting for Rigsby to finish up his — both seemed to be feeling better by then, though.
She added: “I’m grateful that we’re healthy. Thank you guys for all your support over the past week-and-a-half or ten days. It’s been truly an emotional rollercoaster but wouldn’t have been able to get through it without all of you guys and all of your support. I am just happy that Cody is okay, and we’re still rehearsing via Zoom as we speak.”
