*shimmies* Watching today’s Samba Saturday, we feel like we’re having a party and we haven’t even blown up any balloons. Today we’re watching a dance which was full of the carnival atmosphere and had so much energy we just wanted to join in at home. We’re watching Team Markarena (Mark Wright and Karen Hauer) show us that the only way to Samba.
We loved this dance for several reasons:
1) It was a turning point for Mark where he came out and gave it everything, showing he was a contender. Coming back after being in the Dance-Off the week before and performing like this takes guts and determination!
2) Karen’s costume was so bright, colourful and full of fringing, we felt we were watching the Rio Carnival.
3) The choreography – It had enough traditional Samba for Len, but also some great crowd-pleasing disco bits, and also who could resist Mark’s hips, he gave Snakey Jakey a run for his money! 😍
4) Craig’s lack of expression when Mark was girating on the Judge’s desk, we think he wasn’t watching the same dance as us, or Darcey!
We loved this dance and hope you will too. Here are Mark and Karen showing us the (w)right way to do a Samba:
We’d love to hear what you thought of that dance. Was that the way (ahaha) you liked it (ahahaha?) Let us know what you thought by commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you. We’re off to shimmy around town and do some (boring i.e. food) shopping. We’ll be here from 7.30pm tonight for our #strictlysupportgroup chat. We hope you can join us then!
