Alexandra & Gorka’s Jive to Proud Mary

The winners of the MOST ICONIC DANCE OF 2017 is ALEXANDRA & GORKA

What a dance that will go down in Strictly history. The choreography and execution was sublime and secured Alexandra to the final event so early on in the competition. Week on week the pair produced so wonderful routines but their jive was most certainly the best.

Such a wonderful dance to watch, joyful, playful and energetic and it really captured the feel of the musical and marry poppins. Gorka had some great choreography and the whole routine was brought together with the fabulous costumes, set and extra dancers.

Alexandra & Gorka
40 (10,10,10,10) – American Smooth
39 (9,10,10,10) – Showdance
40 (10,10,10,10) – Jive

What a journey Alexandra has had, she has been a source of joy no entertainment from Week one and has proved herself Week by Week. It has been a pleasure to watch her grow as a dancer and to see her confidence build. I can’t imagine how tough these past 15 weeks have been for her but all I can say is that she has done her mum proud.

This dance was so unique and memorable so I am ecstatic that they’re doing it again! What can I even say, it was as good, if not better, than the first time she danced it! It was full of energy and sass, it had everything that I love in a jive: stacatto, quick kicks and flicks and just pure energy! I don’t even know what else to say but this girl has so much passion and fire – this dance has to go down in Strictly history because its magnificent!

This wasnt the song I expected them to give Alex but, thinking now, its perfect because its got Charleston, Hollywood glamour that she oozes all the time! Now that was a showdance for me! It had all the best bits of her other dances like the Charleston and her Argentine tango and it just bled out show business and sparkle! It was so nice the way it started quite slow and then bam, the energy rose and it was suddenly a mix of every dance that she has done – it was a journey inside of a movie! I loved the concept and the two of them worked perfectly together! It was definitely pure show with a lot of dance – what else could I want?
