Those of you who know my 6 year old will know that there is nothing she loves more than Strictly, Dancing and of course Unicorns!
A few months ago she asked me if she could write some posts on my blog. One of her requests was to do a “proper interview like the news people do” with her favourite professional dancer, Karen Clifton. She kindly agreed to take part, which meant I had one very happy six year old girl!
She began by asking them this. What can we expect from Strictly 2016?
You can expect lots of exciting new pro numbers and lots of energy from the new pro dancers!
It sounds like it’s going to be epic! The Strictly cast of 2016 have all been announced & I’m getting excited! Of the celebrities who will be dancing on Strictly 2016 who would you like to be paired with most?
Karen: I would love to be paired with someone who is not afraid to be themselves and embrace all things Strictly!
I really want to be a dancer on Strictly when I grow up. What advice would you give to someone like me wanting to be a dancer.
Always work hard and keep practicising!
And as my mummy always tells me, eat your greens and listen to your dance teacher.
What makes a good dancer for you?
Karen: I love dancers that tell a story through their movement!
What’s your favourite song to dance to and what’s your favourite dance?
Karen: This is really hard. I love all songs. It’s too hard to pick one. Same for picking a favourite dance although I do enjoy a quirky Charleston!
You’re opening up a dance school soon and have taught lots of people to dance. What’s the best thing about teaching people to dance and who’s been your best student?
Kevin and I love teaching, specially kids. It’s great for their health, confidence and overall happiness.
All of our students have been the absolute best.
Thank you Karen for taking part and answering Bella’s tough questions! The Strictly 2016 Launch show is on the 3rd September, so just 9 sleeps away! We can’t wait!
Bella (and Cassie)
