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

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…

Strictly Come Dancing week 5 – Halloween Special

Apologies for not blogging on last week’s action, but unfortunately we just couldn’t get the time. Tonight is the Strictly Halloween Special, and I can already predict that the scariest thing is going to be Nancy! First up is Russell Grant & Flavia Cacace with their Samba

Kara Tointon & Artem Chigvintsev – American Smooth

Kara has a dodgy arm, and Artem probably still a dodgy neck, it’s going to be an interesting American Smooth! I can see now what Emma saw in her arms earlier, she’s doing extremely well to keep smiling.  It’s going really well but then it’s head down just before the standing slide and a very…

Ann Widdecombe & Anton Du Beke – American Smooth

So Anton has to complete 3 lifts in the American Smooth, I’m hoping we see a few new ones and not the same ones they keep throwing in each week. Good start with the lift…and then they land.  Actually the start isn’t that bad, though Ann does end up out of time. There’s even a…

Strictly Come Dancing – Saturday 20th November

Ok so it’s a little bit late, but we’ve been working out in St Lucia so I’m sure you’ll forgive us a small delay! I have a confession though, I already know who went home on both of the two weeks that I missed (pretty difficult to avoid the whole internet and all our students…

Gethin Jones & Flavia Cacahe – American Smooth

Doesn’t really seem to be much chemistry between them, and I’m finding the performance a little stale, however the final lift drew some excited gasps from Emma’s mother and sister. Not a bad performance, but not as good as the others so…

Ali Bastian & Brian Fortuna – American Smooth

A dance that should suit Ali better, although they have chosen quite a fast number. Not sure about Ali having both hands above her head during her spins, looks a little untidy. It looks like they’ve decided to quash any ‘are they or aren’t they’ rumours with those kisses at the end. A very good…

Laila Rouass & Anton du Beke – American Smooth

I was really enjoying the start, up until the slip in the spin. She really does have to watch those shoulders too. The dance does look like Anton is throwing her round quite a lot, and I don’t just mean in the lifts! Started with lots of promise but I don’t think it delivered and…
