Strictly a Spectacular Story
It’s Strictly the best! Possibly one of the single most influential reasons for the revival and the growth of Ballroom and Latin dance in the last 17 years (and in the 42 years before that too !) has been the incredible Strictly Come Dancing on television. It is not a new concept by any means […]
The Cheeky Charleston!
We all love the Charleston when it appears on Strictly – it’s guaranteed to make us smile with its goofy expressions, energetic slapstick moves and its great themes. It has been around in various forms since the 1920s and has developed so much along the way. It has also been one of the dances that […]

Perfect Posture!
How many times when we are watching strictly do we hear the judges talking about posture and frame? So many times! The elegance of the Ballroom dancers is crucial to creating that true style and without it there is always something missing. The posture and frame not only make the dance look good they also […]

Ultra Ballroom GLitz and Glamour
The Glitz and the Glamour
One of the biggest attractions of ballroom dancing has to be (as well as learning to master those steps and float or spin across the dance floor) the utter glamour of it all. It’s an opportunity to dress up and put on the best makeup and add as much sparkle as you can possibly find. […]
