Like it or not the success of "Strictly Come Dancing" in the UK and America will change the pattern of dance and music for years to come.
This will of course provide work for many musicians,singers,professional dancers and new Dance Schools will pop up all over the place.
I welcome this change,not because it brings back a lot of memories ,but the dance scene has been so boring for many years.
The programms are not exactly what I would have wished for, being dragged out for about two hours,but I do applaud the efforts of the dancers and their dancing standard after only a week between dances to practice.

I must admit to liking the content of the programme if not the presentation, and I find the blonde girl who is Bruce Forsyth's co-presenter hilarious, as she tries desperately to suppress her north of England accent.
Proper dancing is lovely to see, but why must some of the ladies wear so little?

I thought she was trying to effect a more northern accent as seems to be the fashion these days( Not that there's owt wrong wi' that tha knows!)Understandable!

my wife loves the programme.

she was a champion ballroom dancer , prior to becoming disabled with arthritis in her 20's. she says it brings back to her - just how good it felt to be doing those steps - the ehilaration and fun of dancing and the thrill of competition.

I joined a ballroom dancing school to learn the Tango,however that formed part of Silver medal course and just when I had passed the Bronze and my next lesson was to be the Tango ,I moved and never did learn it.My teacher was a stunning looker and a dream to dance with.
I joined a band shortly afterwards playing music for ballroom dancing and then as ballroom dancing declined moved my trumpet over for the concertina and Folk dancing.
My other wish is to tap dance and this is starting to form part of some workshops at Folk Festivals,perhaps Ballroom and American Swing dancing will follow.One of the best Swing dance evenings ever was at Cecil Sharp House.

Can be good fun, specially watching those sportsmen who seem to need, desperately, to win.

But could someone tell me about the judge's rules please. People seem to lose marks for the most spurious of reasons:

Her head was too far away
His head was too close
Their feet were not pointing forward
Her gall-bladder was imperfectly proportioned

I may have mis-remembered some of the criticisms, but you know what I mean

There are strict rules associated with correctly dancing Ballroom Dances,just as there are major differences between English Country Dance Waltz and French Waltz and it is easily recognised when you have danced them.Gall Bladder imperfections are much more difficult to recognise and that is why Bill,you and I are not judges.

Thanks Al.

I guess that when dancing moves away from shared enjoyment into the arena of intense competitiveness, then they need their spurious rules to distinguish one from another.

I'd like them to make up other strict rules - maybe that the walzing dancers should be required to shout FECK at the exact same time during their performance or lose at least one point.

A similar word was mentioned whilst doing a running reverse step in the Quickstep, Bill.
I tripped half way through it and finished with my partner on top of me on the floor. (We were just good friends)

And it's beating the X Factor on Saturday nights!

Personally though, I can't stand Tess Daly (blonde airheaded Northern presenter), so I don't watch it.

They must have pretty sexy outfits - I went to Joe's link above and tried to play the video. My computer then announced "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." Must have been hot stuff!

Ok, we just overheard an advert for strictly come dancing, and my lovely and clever spouse TheSilentOne piped up with Strictly Dumb Prancing.

We both immediately thought "Nah" some one has already said it. So I googled it and guess what? Not only has someone said it, there is an act by the name and they have their own website.
