As ABC’s Dancing With the Stars kicked off its anticipated 29th season premiere, the Corsicana Country Club held a watch party last night in support of Navarro College’s Cheer Coach Monica Aldama.

Locals packed tables in support of the Cheer star during the 2-hour program. Aldama’s performance met with solid praise from the show’s judges as she performed with her professional dancing partner, Valentin “Val” Chmerkovskiy.

Aldama, dressed in a long blue evening gown, danced a foxtrot with Val to the tune of “My Wish” by Rascal Flatts, earning the pair 19 points out of a possible 30 for the evening.

Fans of the pair can show their online support by sharing the hashtag #TeamValdama.

The next episode of Dancing With the Stars will air Tuesday, Sept 22.
