Brendan Cole: Live and Unjudged

Brendan Cole will be at New Theatre Oxford at 19.30 on Thursday 10th June bringing his live show to the stage.
As there’s no classes that week we thought we’d arrange a trip to go and watch the show.  Tickets start at £32 including booking fees.
If you’re interested in attending please let us know asap, the New Oxford Theatre is around an hour away by car but if there’s enough people interested we might look at hiring a minibus/coach.

Please let me know if you would like to book any of the above private lessons as slots tend to go very quickly.  Please note that 1 weeks notice will be required for any cancellation of private lessons or a £10 charge is payable, if less than 48 hours notice is given then full lesson cost is due.  We reserve the right to cancel lessons if we deem this necessary, or circumstances arise that are outside of our control.
All private lessons take place at the Eton Wick Village Hall, Eton Wick Road, Eton Wick, SL4 6LT.

 

Practice Night

Our practice nights take place on Friday, 28th May, 25th June, 9th July at The Baldwin Institute Hall, Eton Court, Eton, SL4 6BQ.
The practice starts at 8.30pm and costs £6 per person (£5 if you pay in advance).  The session lasts for 2 ½ hours and is a chance for you to come along and dance as much or as little as you like.
Please feel free to bring your own food and drink (alcoholic or non).

Strictly Posh Dancing?

So a new series of Strictly Come Dancing is fast approaching and talk turns to who could be taking part this year.  Last year’s show was a bit of a letdown for some in terms of the celebrities selected and the BBC want to make amends this year.
According to The Sun Strictly are lining up a number of high profile celebrities for this year’s competition, top targets include Victoria Beckham, Amy Winehouse, Chelsea Clinton (ex-US president Bill’s daughter) and [controversially if Chelsea signs up too] Monica Lewinsky [Bill’s former ‘secretary with benefits’].
Other targets are said to include Kimberley Walsh (Girls Aloud) and Patsy Kensit (Lethal Weapon 2 and currently Holby City).
It’s not all glitz and glamour though as they’re also purportedly considering former Cheeky Girl fancier, oh and ex-Lib Dem MP, Lembit Opik!
There are also going to be more planned recordings from Blackpool Tower (though not a complete move – something Ian Waite agrees isn’t feasible in an interview with Digital Spy).
Talk is also abound of changes in the professional lineup, with the new producer having flown out to the States to audition potential new pro’s…why they couldn’t start with more homegrown talent is beyond me (hint BBC if you’re listening…give me a call!!!)
Alesha Dixon is currently continuing as a judge (though no offense Alesha but I hope they drop you for someone with even a little bit more knowledge).  Surely a departing female professional could’ve been a viable option.
Regardless of the changes, or non-, i’ll still be avidly watching and giving my own views on the performances.
Who knows, one day I might even be on the show – even if it’s in the dark recesses of the public audience!
How would you change this year’s Strictly, and who would you like to see on the show?
