Sadie Robertson really came out of her shell on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, performing a spirited samba with partner Mark Ballas.

The judges were impressed, handing the pair a score of 37. But they weren't the only ones gushing about the 17-year-old, who really seems to be hitting her stride.

PEOPLE caught up with her proud papa, Willie Robertson, after the show to get his thoughts. And while admitting it's still early in the competition, the Duck Dynasty star said he can tell his daughter is improving week to week.

"She's definitely more confident and just rolling," he said.



Check out the full interview below, in which Sadie and Ballas also tell us how they know it's a good night when the dance flies by and they barely remember it.
