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!

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 9

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
So we’re down to 7 contestants and Michael has a Samba…that’s got bottom two written all over it!

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!

Strictly Come Dancing 2012 – Week 7: Dance Through The Decades

BBC Strictly 2012 Line-up
Just when you thought we were safe from themed weeks it appears tonight at Wembley is going to be ‘Dance Through The Decades’, why can’t we just have dance through the show instead?!

You can definitely see that this is designed to be a higher budget show, amazing what a difference it makes when you’re charging people for tickets (although hopefully a large chunk is going to Children in Need).

Bruce’s intro is just painful for us tonight but (4 repeats of ‘nice to see you’ later) it thankfully moves on to the ‘stars of our show’…oh dear it’s not over yet – cue en masse Gangnam Style.
