For Disney Night on "Dancing with the Stars," Lindsey Stirling Performs Elegant Dance to "When You Wish Upon a Star"


“The essence of what the song is about is that your dreams can come true and I remember when I was a struggling artist and when I was being told that I would never succeed, I was inspired by the Walt Disney story. You know, everyone told him he was a failure and yet, he didn’t give up. So I didn’t either,” Stirling said.

On Dancing With The Stars Disney night, Lindsey Stirling and her partner Mark Ballas opted to go classic. Performing the foxtrot to "When You Wish Upon A Star" from Disney's 1940 cartoon Pinocchio, the team earned 28 out of 30 points for the evening. And to top it all off, Mickey Mouse accompanied them on the piano.
