Strictly Support Group – School’s Out For Summer Chat!

For the majority of us, School is Officially Out For Summer *watches her 7 year old dancing around excitedly.*

Tonight in honour of it being the start of the Summer Holidays, we hosted a Summer Holidays themed chat.

We began (in true Strictly Support Group style) with our Annual Yearbook Awards. Here are your winners in a handy little video form:

Your votes are in in our #StrictlySupportGroupYearbookAwards. Congratulations to all our winners this year!

A post shared by Strictly Support Group (@scd_support) on

If you didn’t get the chance to vote in these categories, we’d love to hear some of your other categories in which you’d have put our pros against one another!

Once our awards were out of the way and done with, we moved on to ask some Holiday themed questions. We started by asking you If you could pack one Strictly performance in your suitcase, which would you choose and why? We had some brilliant suggestions from you all. Here they are:

For our second question we asked this:

We’re off to Italy soon and my 7 year old has told me she’d like to watch Strictly in Italy more than she’d like to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa. If you could watch Strictly in any country where would it be?

For our final question we asked if you could borrow any Strictly outfit to wear on holiday which outfit would you choose? Here are some of our favourite answers:

Strictly Couple Weeks – Sophie and Brendan – Day 2

Over the years on Strictly we have seen many memorable and fab-u-lous Argentine Tangos. In 2013, we suffered a bit of an Argentine Tango drought, with no Argentine Tango being performed until week 7 (when our couple in the limelight, Sophie and Brendan took to the floor to show us this brilliant dance.)

We had waited what felt like a life-time for an Argentine Tango and once we watched this dance we fell in love! 

It was beautifully choreographed and gave us goosebumps. Sophie’s dress was gorgeous and the whole routine made us remember why we loved this dance so much. In our eyes it was slightly undermarked – it got 32/40 points but in our eyes it deserved at least 3, 9s in our opinion

In case you missed it earlier, her are Sophie and Brendan with their wonderful Argentine Tango:

We’d love to hear what you thought of this dance. Tweet us @scd_support or comment below to let us know. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Strictly Couple Weeks – Sophie and Brendan – Day 1

Over the years on Strictly there have been many memorable series and our couple in the spotlight this week come from 2013, the year when Girl Power reigned supreme and 4 female celebrities reached the final.

Yes, last night, we announced Sophie and Brendan as our next couple in the Spotlight as part of our Strictly Couple Weeks series.

During their time on the show, Sophie performed some brilliant dances and achieving a score of 36/40 in Week 2 for one of the best Charlestons we have ever seen.

Always oozing class and Elegance, the ballroom was her forte and she performed some of our all-time favourite ballroom routines of all time.

For our Monday Motivation and Day 1 of our Sophie and Brendan week, we’re reliving their Charleston. For a week 2 performance it surprised and amazed us. The choreography was daring, the dancing near perfection and the performance cool, laid-back and just brilliant!

It was one of those perfect moments that we loved. In case you missed it earlier, here are Sophie and Brendan with their wonderful Charleston: 

We’d love to hear what you thought of this dance. You can either tweet @scd_support or comment below to let us know. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Strictly Couple Weeks – Harry and Aliona – Day 2

It’s Tuesday and here at Strictly Support Group HQ we couldn’t resist sharing one of our all-time favourite Argentine Tangos. 

Those of you who follow our blog will know that this week is Harry and Aliona week. Earlier today we shared their Argentine Tango. It was a dance that had so much passion, we’re pretty sure Bruno would have needed to lie down (after falling off his chair) and Len probably went off to pickle his walnuts in a dark room.

We loved this dance for so many reasons. It was a true goosebumps moment. Everything from the music, to the costumes (Aliona’s dress gave us serious dress envy) to the choreography and the performance just left us watching on in awe.

We loved this dance and shared it earlier on twitter and on our facebook pages:

We’d love to hear what you loved about this dance. You can tell us by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you.

Strictly Couple Weeks – Harry and Aliona – Day 1

Last night, we unveiled Harry and Aliona as our next couple in the spotlight as part of our Strictly Couple Weeks.

Not only were Harry and Aliona crowned champions in 2011, but they are one of our all-time favourite couples on Strictly.

To kick off their Strictly Couple Week, we’ve picked their wonderful Greased Lightning jive. For us, this was the performance where Harry really came alive and showed his true potential. It was full of energy, brilliant choreography and the concept and theme behind the dance were first-class.

We loved it, and hope you will too! In case you missed it earlier, here are Harry and Aliona with their Jive.

We’d love to hear what you thought of this dance. You can tweet @scd_support or comment below. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
