It's a move she perfected years ago on Broadway in Will Rogers Follies.

She said: “I really want to be an inspiration for my daughter and for the women over 50.”

Good Morning America's Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee weathered the ballroom with style and grace. Hard to believe she gave birth just three months ago.

GMA anchors Robin Roberts and Amy Roebach were there to cheer Zee on. Immediately following the show, they were on the red eye back to New York to cover the breaking news of the terror attacks in Brussels.

Hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews were back in the ballroom. He is returning after losing both of his parents. She is back after a jury awarded her $55 million in her peeping tom trial.

Immediately after the show she tweeted “good to be back with family.”
