Dancing With the Stars 2014: Danica McKellar, Drew Carey, and More Spotted at Rehearsals (PHOTOS)

Dancing With the Stars Season 18 is off to a great start. With so much amazing talent, the stars and pros really need to dance their butts off at rehearsals. And that's exactly what they're doing!

The cast has been spotted at the Los Angeles, California studios around the clock, practicing for upcoming performances. We can only imagine the amount of Cha-Cha-ing, lifting, and twisting going on behind the scenes. This week, Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke were spotted hamming it up for the cameras outside of the studios. Danica McKellar and Witney Carson were also spotted at practice. The two gals, who are competing against each other for the Mirror Ball, looked super smiley while posing for photos together. Talk about friendly competition!

Speaking of competition, frontrunners Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his partner Meryl Davis took a little break from practicing earlier in the week for a lunch out.
