It is the old question, is it a show or a dance competition? The BBC make a show of it for those millions of people who never found the joy of Ballroom dancing, those wonderful nights in the Hammersmith or Locarno's not to mention the Blackpool Tower, club dancing or dancing round your hand bag and that was only the men, does not give an insight in to two people flowing round a room in complete harmony hence the extras, eye candy.
Mark had only a few hours practice because of his day job and Karen had to make it simple she is a good choreographer normally, the Salsa was never one of my dances it was sit out time for me, Latin was Tango, slow or fast, Rumba and Paso, the jive was for the kids penned into the corners of the hall, did it on the odd occasion and not good at it. Jake or Mark next week and then the dancing begins though if anything like other years more Gymnastics than dance. Some may not like Caroline the person but boy can she dance, I would have loved to dance with her in my hay day, long gone now.
