Over the last week we let you ask some of our favourite Strictly people questions about the magical show just for our blog. Earlier today, we chose this dance as your daily strictly fix (sends a box of tissues in advance as this routine is so beautiful it will move you to tears!)
It seemed appropriate, after watching this dance, to publish this Q&A. Today it’s the turn of two of our favourite professionals, the lovely Karen Hauer and Kevin Clifton. We know they are super super busy with rehearsals, so they took a few moments out of their energetic schedule to answer some questions chosen by you.
So, Karen and Kevin, we love watching you dance on Strictly. For you what has been the best moment of being on the show?
Karen For me, the best moment on Strictly would be when I danced wearing a head full of fruit with Hairy Bikers Dave Myers to Cuban Pete. Funniest moment ever for me. Love watching that routine.
We loved watching it too so had to share it on here, again!
Kevin Dancing the Paso Doble with Susanna at Blackpool and as it finished the crowd erupted. The noise was massive. Pretty emotional moment at the home of dancing.
It was emotional and world record-breaking. Another of our favourite dances, so we have to share on here too!
If you weren’t professional dancers, what would you have chosen as your career path?
Karen Either a veterinarian, an archeologist or a ninja haha!! 😂
Kevin A WWE Wrestler! We love watching Kevin dance, but think being a WWE wrestler would be awesome!
Where has been the most wonderful place where you’ve ever performed and why?
Karen and Kevin For both of us it was performing on Broadway with Burn The Floor. Every performer’s dream is to be on a Broadway stage. After years of hard work, blood and tears we can now say that we have danced on Broadway stage.
If you could choose any celebrity to be your partner on Strictly who would you choose?
Karen I would mix the upper body of David Beckman and Alan Carr’s dancing legs hehe 😂
Kevin Beyoncé because she is fierce and commits to everything she does. She’s the best female performer in the world.
We’ve seen you performing on TV, on tours together and in group routines. Do you prefer choreographing and dancing duets or group numbers? How does performing on Strictly compare to performing in theatres or on tour?
Karen and Kevin We love choreographing both duets and group numbers. It’s always exciting to work with lots of dancers using their different skills and energy but we also like the intimacy of just two dancers connecting to one another.
Both Strictly and theatre performances are exhilarating and you have to be in the moment. You can’t hesitate and have to be in full control for both. They both test your abilities as a performer. Both teach you to constantly learn and appreciate your art.
And finally, when’s the big day? 👰🎩👗👫💃
Karen and Kevin Wedding bells ringing for next year (if we both have time to plan it!!)
Thank you to Karen and Kevin for taking part in our Q&A. We’ll be watching and supporting you both this series and cannot wait to see Strictly 2014. Hope you both have a successful show and may all your glitterball dreams all come true!
Thank you to all of you followers for your questions too! We hope you enjoyed reading this Q&A
