A Paso

I have not really been following Strictly
But I must admit Susanna Reid ( a newscaster and non dancer)
Should win the contest
Just watch this paso
Cracking

  1. Ah, to be able to dance. Alas, I am a klutz. I bet you can bust a move, John.

    Love,
    Janie

  2. I am sitting here watching America's version of the show. They are also doing the Paso. Here the winner will be not necessarily the best dancer, but the one with the most fans. It is still fun to watch though.

  3. Our dear friend Manzanita would also love this. I suppose she only gets to watch "Dancing with the Stars". I think I got that right, Arleen.

    Goodnight, I need some sleep :)

  4. Stunning wasn't it. I think Susanne and Abbey are the ones to watch. neither classically trained. There are some crackers aren't there!

  5. How anyone can sit and watch a TV programme about people DANCING; I really don't know.

    1. I've never understood how anyone could watch a show about people playing golf.

  9. I don't know anything about the Pasodoble except from 'Strictly Ballroom' the movie. I LOVE the bit where Fran's father shows Scott the proper way to dance it. http://www.miramax.com/watch?v=Fldm5tYTrse8Le-PmdLoD2ZV0CYt2aAh

    1. Heehee. Thanks for the link, I was just thinking that very same thing, you've saved me having to go and look it up. I wonder if that influenced my thinking that even though the dance above was great, the music was badly chosen!

  12. I don't watch 'Strictly' but I've seen clips of it. Those dancers really get a good work-out. Wish I had the moves to dance like that.

  13. Co-indecently one of our dancing shows tonight featured Tina Arena nailing the Paso Doble with a score of 10. She is a resident of Paris and a recipient of the Legion D'honneur. Of course I do not watch such shows. It was just on.

  15. John,

    Love the dance, it remind me of living in Spain with the Flamingo Dance. Great job those two!!!

  16. No, no, no, John! I'm going to be the party popper, here. She stomps around like a buffalo! Here in the States we have 'Dancing with the Stars'. Last season was amazing due to the non-professional dancer Kelli Pickler. John (and everybody else), please go to youtube and look at the clip 'Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough - Supersize Freestyle - Week 10 The Finale'. Their dance is so beautiful. I dare you not to start bawling when you see it. Ok, I just watched it again and need to go get a hankie.

    3. I'm so glad that some of you watched it already. When you see something so hmhm-good, you just want others to see it, too. Now we just have to get Cro to watch it.

    4. Had a look..... Thedancingwas impressive but the pace of the show seems rather relentless when compared with the uk programme.... Mr hough is a sweetie

  17. Would LOVE to see this show here! We watch 'Dancing With The Stars' here and are hooked!
    These two were good! I see Bruno and Len there too....they are probably permanently jet-legged!!

  18. I have not been watching strictly this time around. I do think I may like to be flung around the dance floor though!

  19. Dare I say that the farmer and I never miss it. That Paso Doble was cetainly very good, but others have been more consistently good I think. Sadly I don't know their names as most are soap stars of one kind and another and I don't watch any of the soaps. Patrick somebody, who is I think a Shakespearian actor is probably the most consistent. We shall see.

  20. Yes, that dance was perfection! We have "Dancing with the Stars" her and sadly anyone can call in a vote so....it is more a popularity contest and I hate that fact. I love ballroom dancing and once I am 80 #s lighter and thirty years younger....I am going to take lessons.

  21. It was very intense wasn't it. It's one of my least favourite dances on the show normally but that one was something special.

  22. Every week Susanne stays in makes poor Bill Turnbull realise how much he let the side down.
