Strictly Come Dancing the Professionals

Yesterday I went and saw the Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals Tour, and it was absolutely amazing!

Each dancer got to talk about their experience on Strictly as well as their background and how they got into dancing. We got t9 learn a little but more abou them all which was lovely. They also showed bits from the show including some of the funniest moments, the most dramatic as well as a montage of Blackpool performances.

The dancers were Dianne, Karen, Nadiya, Katya, Oti, Neil, AJ, Gorka, Pasha and Giovanni. And they were all fantastic (as always)

The highlights for me were;

. Giovanni – he was so funny and had some great interaction with the audience and his performance was absolutely stunning.

.Oti – It was a joy to get to see her dance, she is just phenomenal and didn’t put a foot wrong.

. The singers – Patrick Smyth and Alison Jiear were outstanding! Such incredible voices and they interacted with the dances and were incorporated in the routines which was brilliant to see and much better that them just standing at the back with the band

. Pasha’s farewell – Nadiya came out and delivered a lovely speech about Pasha, he then performed some of his best bits including the Charleston he performed with Caroline Flack and the Salsa he did with Ashley last year. At the end of his performance he received a standing ovation from the entire theatre.

It was a brilliantly put together show, very well thought out and a lovely concept. And the dancers were all fantastic, you could see that the were loving performing all together and talking about there pasts and Strictly.

The WINNERS of the BEST WEEK 1 DANCE are JOE & DIANNE

What a first dance this was, so much energy and actually really showed the potential joe had from the very beginning. It showed that he had rhythm and musicality and was going to do really well.

The award for BEST PROP goes to JOE & DIANNE.

For their couples choice street commercial routine. An overall fantastic dance, that required accuracy and a lot of skill. The use of the basketballs was woven into the routine seemlessly and they were able to control the props which was fantastic.

The WINNER of BEST PRO DANCER is DIANNE BUSWELL

She impressed me so much this series, after not seeing her much last year. She brought a lot of new fresh choreography and also a lot of laughs and fun.

Showdance – Joe and Dianne

Before I start, here is the bad thing: HE SHOULD NOT HAVE PUT TEM DAMN FORTNITE MOVES IN… now breathe…

Apart from that start, this was actually one of my favourite dances of the night and it was definitely something I would love learning from the song to the set o the outfits to the moves. It was soo fun with the pyro and the trampolines but really it was just full of great content and showed how much he has improved from the start of the show. The two of them work so well together and they put on a proper show dance that i would happily watch again *i mean except the start* because it combined everything i love in a showdance! GO JOE!

Joe & Dianne – 29 (6,8,7,8) – Viennese Waltz

A very heartfelt and romantic routine from Joe & Dianne, and I think he is very good at ballroom dances normall, but for whatever reason this dance just didn’t connect with me at all. On a technical side, the judges were right, there was too much rise and fall and I also didn’t see much turning so it didn’t feel like a Viennese waltz at all to me.

Argentine Tango – 30 (6,8,8,8)

This was an awkward dance to watch in my opinion. Joe didn’t have the strength to lift Diane and really grasp the feel of the dance. It felt forced as well making it loose its magic, I wasn’t to keen on the theme of the dance either, it took away from the whole Argentine Tango passion and intensity that it should have. It was a good effort, but I don’t think it was a dance made for Joe unfortunately.

Dance 2 – Joe and Dianne – Argentine Tango

With the concept, Joe could either rise or fall to the challenge but unfortunately this wasn’t a great dance for me. I dont know, he just looked like a boy doing a man’s dance and he definitely wasn’t leading it which is the main thing for this dance. When he did the first lift, it looked like he was running around trying to carry Dianne and it did seem a bit stompy and forced. I saw sparks of character and a connection between the two of them but it just didnt last and that’s the problem – there was no consistency. However, considering how young and innocent he is, i think he did his best.
