The Professional Dancers of 2019 Series 17

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.

In honour of it being Halloween yesterday I’m throwing it back to 2016 with a professional pro numbers. In my opinion it was the best Halloween pro number to date.

Strictly dancers ‘form union to call for pay rise’

They definitely deserve more for all the hard work they put in to choreographing routines and then putting the time and effort into training the celebrities. The amount of hours they do in training is mind blowing as well as learning all the pro routines as well. Give the strictly pros a pay rise !!!
