Five couples remaining, and now they have to perform two dances each. This should really test their dance abilities and we could see quite a few mistakes tonight I fear. Continue reading

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 10

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
This week we have a new concept (well to Strictly anyway, I believe they tested it out on Dancing With The Stars previously) of a dance fusion, either two dances performed within the same song seamlessly, or a split half-way through.

We’ve seen professionals perform these type of dances at shows before, and I’ve choreographed and performed dance fusions before. These could be amazing, or a complete car crash…let’s hope for amazing!

We actually managed to watch the show on Saturday night for once, though we didn’t start until ridiculously late so thought we’d leave the update til Monday morning as usual.

3 weeks to go until the final, and it’s starting to get harder to say “they should definitely go this week” so we’ll just have to wait for their performances to be sure!

This is ‘Montem’ Style!

[UPDATE]: We have had to remove the photos/videos from this post we’re afraid.

This is Gangnam Montem Style

Earlier this month we were approached by Montem Primary School in Slough to come into the school and teach a group of students a choreographed dance for a family supper they were holding on Thursday 29th November 2012. The idea of the family supper was to bring together the different communities within the school, everyone brings a dish and the students provide the entertainment.
