Emma Slater, who is currently competing alongside James Van Der Beek, spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her participation in the getaway and what fans can expect if they attend.
“It’s just a really cool chance to go and hang out in an awesome place with a bunch of friends, and then new friends, and, Dancing with the Stars dancers.”
“Maybe get a spin from the boys? They’ll look after you, you know,” she continued. “And they’ll be there, shirts off and everything. Pool parties, hangouts, you get to see some costumes, you get to do some dancing, it’ll be a really fun time!”

We made the Semi Finals!!!!! Thank you so so much to those who have voted for us and supported us. It’s crazy to think that this show changes lives because essentially it’s a mere entertainment show (albeit a great one!) but it does change lives. Those of whom are in the show and hopefully sometimes those who aren’t. Anyone who allows themselves to be affected by the show, thank you so much. For me, the impact it has is deep and usually overwhelming each season. I don’t know how it still catches me off guard. Almost like the impact is brand new each time. I’ll throw my life into a world where I just want to deliver for my partners and to protect them through the process. Throughout it all, I’m constantly aware that I’m so in love with life and it’s because I can be a part of something so meaningful to me. So I’m sorry to ramble, I just really really wanted to let people know how grateful I am for their support and that my partner @vanderjames & I don’t take it likely and we hope we can bring you some joy on Monday night, because we definitely feel it ourselves ????
The fun will continue with DWTS theater shows, nightly themed dance parties hosted by DWTS celebrities, an interactive game show featuring the show’s stars, Q&A events, photo sessions with your favorite performers, a costume exhibit, dance lessons, and excursions to name a few of the exciting events planned.
This is the first vacation event the show has hosted where multiple pros will be in attendance.
The show was featured on the Holland America line of ships which featured Dancing with the Stars at Sea programming on their cruises to Alaska in 2013, per Dallas News. These included show-inspired dance classes built around the show’s routines and competitions, along with video tips and an appearance from former DWTS pro Kym Herjavec.
