Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas performed their salsa dance on Dancing With the Stars on Monday night, but not before Alexa admitted she had "salsa in her blood."

There was no question about that during the performance. Mark Ballas worked Alexa PenaVega to the bone, and the results they achieved were well worth their efforts.

The two landed an impressive 24 from the judges for their salsa.

Something not everyone knows about Alexa PenaVega is her reliance on her faith in every aspect of her life. She shares that faith with her Twitter followers, thanking God not only for her success on Dancing With the Stars, but for all she has been blessed with, too.

Following Monday night's salsa, Alexa PenaVega also thanked her husband and DWTS competitor, Carlos PenaVega.

She also spoke of her pro partner, Mark Ballas.

“I feel like we just really got connected this week,” Alexa PenaVega said.
