Rick Perry shares, then deletes DWTS Instagram post

Former governor contestant on dance show

SAN ANTONIO – Hours before he prepared to dance on national television, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry shared a picture on his Instagram that caught the eye of a lot of people.

Perry is a contestant on this fall's “Dancing with the Stars.”

In the picture, you see Perry and his dance partner, Emma Slater, through a silhouette.

Perry captioned the photo by saying, "Practicing the last move for tonight!! #teamdanceforvets #DWTS"

Hours later, Perry deleted the post.

Perry and Slater were practicing for Monday night’s “Green Acres”-themed dance.

After Week 1 of the competition, Perry and Slater were ranked last among the contestants.

DWTS airs on KSAT Monday nights starting at 7 p.m.
