A & G - first dance, Salsa

looking really good
going to suit her
fantastic dance for her, lots of speed and rhythm, lovely armography, very complicated but doing it brilliantly and so smooth, totally on it even for a Tuesday
Report squares December 6, 2017 6:34 PM GMT
J & K, AmSm

v smooth, lovely Fred n Ginge stuff, nice FnG hands, lovely shoulder posi but needs to get up a little bit more
Report squares December 6, 2017 6:35 PM GMT
G & A Tango, looks very good, hand a bit spidery on his back should be under the armpit.

Needs to work on her bum, needs to push and drive from it when going into promenade to have more staccato.
Report squares December 6, 2017 6:35 PM GMT
M & A, Samba

wonderful body action, very loose, in promenade runs would like to see her lunging into the front foot more
Report squares December 6, 2017 6:36 PM GMT
D & G - jive

would like to see more stabbing actions with the flicks
doing chicken walks too much with her legs apart, should have top of legs together
Report squares December 6, 2017 6:38 PM GMT
2nd dances

A & G VW

flow really good
nice natural turns
footwork good, but not in hold while training
nice and fluid, no trotting

J & K AT
wonderful displacements of feet - flicking and pushing up, and interlinking steps, looks really good although did go wrong a bit in that clip, but she corrected him
Report squares December 6, 2017 6:40 PM GMT
G & A - Rumba

v nice hip action
v nice straight leg
lovely arched shapely foot
when doing her close with her feet she is keeping it flat, should arch it a bit
but looks great


M & AJ waltz

v early footage from Monday so hopefully looking a lot better by now
all a bit too low down
a bit late going through with AJ and leaving her bum behind


D & G - FT

glued to him, no gapping
lovely position
clinging on a bit much with her hand
and too much body rotation

mentioned Debbie full of energy, vim and vigour for nearly 80.

no mention of Gemma.

Alexandra's been great, swiftly moved on.

All the vt was of Joe's AT although Len didn't like the p0ncing around in front of the mirror.  They all loved the move at the end.

Len re-iterated that viewers appreciate people who don't have previous experience - mentioned Goughie, Ramps and Ore.

Also plugging his TV show and his new album.

Gemma & Aljaz Showdance

doing a Charleston-inspired SD with bits of jive and lindy

(Gemma looking very bouncy)


A & G, loads of side by side content, lots of energy, galloping, trotting and skipping.  She has improved so much with her footwork and legwork.  Keep your shoulders down says Ian.

D & G, a sort of balletic number with lots of lines and lots of lifts, slow contemporary emotional take on a SD.  Lovely hands, lovely foot, lovely shaping in the body, lovely hips tugged under.

J & K, supporting Katya every step of the way, he leads her and she follows, really difficult for a man.  Hand a little far forward.

Alexandra ~ From Sketch , Long lime green dress,sounds like it may have a Bucks Fizz type detachment

Gemma ~ From Sketch , Longish slinky number,base colour black over nude,not telling which crystal colours on top,will reveal legs

TLDM ~From Sketch  Long flowing cream dress with a layer of pink,crystals and seaquins,described as “very soft and delicate “

Joe ~ Katya’s drew on Sketch ,described as Prince & Prince Charming,Joe in a suave jacket,Katya’s dress (I’m reliably informed by Mrs hem is “Frozen” blue) looks pale blue / turquoise with flowing bottom part.
