Strictly Movies Week Review

2017-10-08 06.25.52.jpg

YAY, it’s Strictly Movie Week !


We went la la for the amazing opening number . The make-up , hair, costumes were outstanding. And as for the SCD Band and singers , they never fail to deliver. Well done to the entire Strictly Team.


Here are my thoughts on Strictly Movies Week .

Alexandra and Gorka danced the American Smooth to Wouldn’t It Be Lovely from My Fair Lady

2017-10-08 06.37.50.jpg

It was indeed lovely. The American Smooth brought out a sweet and softer side to Alexandra this week. Alexandra was light on her feet and played the character to perfection. The girl can do no wrong. Latin/Ballroom she can do it all. Love Gorka’s choreography.

Aston and Janette danced a  Cha Cha to Can’t Stop The Feeling from Trolls

Can I commend the strictly hair, makeup , costumes for this duo  Brilliant!! I just adore this partnership, they are perfectly matched in stature and talent. It was a cha cha with a blend of hip hop. Can’t stop the feeling of wanting to keeping watching these two dance dance dance again.

Brian and Amy danced the American Smooth to If I Only Had A Brain from The Wizard Of Oz

2017-10-08 06.29.49.jpg

This performance was much better than last week. Loved Amy’s choreography . Brian executed the lifts well and his timing was good . They were a delight to watch.

Charlotte and Brendan danced a Tango to Danger Zone from Top Gun

Loved the opening scene. This dance was much better than last week. There were a few mistakes but Charlotte is improving each week.

Davood and Nadiya danced a Samba to Stayin’ Alive From Saturday Night Fever

2017-10-08 06.38.40.jpg

Davood puts everything into his performance each week . It was better than last week . Good hips , maybe over enthusiastic pelvic thrusts but we certainly had a fever after this full on fun Samba/disco dance.

Debbie and Giovanni danced a Quickstep to Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off from Shall We Dance?

Debbie continues to capture the essence of each dance she performs. It was like watching two professional dancers . Pure Class!

Gemma and Aljaz danced a Charleston to The Bare Necessities from The Jungle Book

2017-10-08 06.29.07.jpg

A charismatic Charleston and  fun dance to watch. Adore Aljaz choreography it really brought out their personalities.

Joe and Katya danced the Viennese Waltz to Somewhere My Love from Doctor Zhivago

2017-10-08 06.36.38.jpg

Joe is becoming a serious contender in this competition. His floor craft was excellent and technique. His frame was good. A beautiful romantic Viennese Waltz. Katya is an amazing dancer and choreographer and super stylish lady.

Stay Happy & Healthy 

Strictly Week Two Review

The competition is hotting up from Debbie and Giovanni’s beautiful Vienesse waltz to Aston and Janette’s sizzling salsa to Alexandra’s and Gorka’s powerful passionate Paso . Here is my #Strictly Come Dancing Review week 2. Enjoy!

Alexandra and Gorka danced the Paso Doble to Ven a Bailar On The Floor ( Spanish Version) by Jennifer Lopez

WOW! what a powerful passionate paso doble . They totally killed it. The drive and determination throughout the dance was undeniable. They even got a standing ovation from the four judges. (yes even craig)


Charlotte and Brendan danced the Cha Cha to Sugar by Maroon 5

It wasn’t charlotte’s night. She lost the timing at the beginning of the dance and got nervous after that. I feel charlotte will be better at ballroom. Charlotte’s has so much potential and will come back next week and nail it no doubt.

Chizzy and Pasha danced the Foxtrot to I’m A Woman from ‘Smokey Joe’s Cafe’

I just adore these two together . Chizzy is one sassy woman and performer but the foxtrot requires a more smooth approach. They delivered a more fierce foxtrot …

Debbie and Giovanni danced the Viennese Waltz to ‘She’s Always A Woman’ by Billy Joel

Debbie is beautiful elegant lady and dancer. From the placement of her feet to her graceful movements it was just effortless. I just adore Giovanni and his routines. 👌


Gemma and Aljaz Waltzed to Un Giorno Per Noi (A Time For Us) by Gosh Groban

Gemma is progressing beautifully on her strictly journey. Such a gorgeous couple to watch.😍

Molly ans AJ  danced the Tango to ‘Addicted To Love’ by Tina Turner

As the song goes, we might as well face it were addicted to that tango. Great topline/posture. Red Hot Tango!

Ruth  and Anton danced the Charleston to The Charleston by Bob Bob Wilson and His  Varsity Rhythm Boys

Ruth looked fabulous as a 1920’s flapper girl , confident and ready for her charleston this week. The basic swivel was good but could have been a bit more energetic but she did pull her hamstring the previous evening. Her timing was great, overall a big improvement on last week. This dance suited Ruth’s personality. Love Anton’s charleston routines.

Susan and Kevin danced the Charleston to If You Knew Susie by Enoch Light and The Charleston City All-Stars

Who knew Susan could charleston like that. Susan is truly loving every minute of strictly . A joy to watch.👐😄

Aston and Janette danced the Salsa to Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber

Loved the festival theme. It was fast, compact and full of lifts. Aston is a natural dancer . Janette has confidence and complete trust in Aston to give him this routine . Amazing!!


Brian and Amy danced a Cha Cha to Shake Your Groove Thing by Peaches and Herb

Brian is a born entertainer and didn’t fail to deliver . Technically not as good but an enjoyable performance. Adorable to watch though.😆

Davood and Nadiya danced the Quickstep to Last Nite by The Strokes

I think I need to start visiting my library… 🤓It was a full on fast paced routine.

Joe and Katya danced a Tango to Castle On The Hill by Ed Sheeran

Not as good as last week. Needs to work on posture . But still has great potential to go a long way in the competition.  Would love if my wardrobe led to the strictly dancefloor. Would you?

Jonnie and Oti danced a Jive to Johnny B. Goode by  Chuck Berry

Jonnie was more than good it was amazing to watch. He is not only an incredible athlete but dancer too. Oti never fails to deliver.👏👏

Rev. Richard and Dianne danced the American Smooth to Love Really Hurts Without You By Billy Ocean

Rev. Richard put everything into this dance. But it lacked the “American Smooth” …

Simon and Karen Waltzed to You’ll Never Walk Alone by Rogers  and Hammerstein

Simon touched the hearts of the nation with this emotional waltz. There were a few mistakes due too Brian’s level of concentration. An improvement on last week.

Here is the week two leaderboard
