Last Saturday, we sat down to watch Strictly Launch Show with so much excitement. We’re pretty sure if we were a confetti cannon we would have exploded and covered our living room in sparkly confetti!
It was a chance to see the cast of Strictly 2017 take to the floor for the first time and see who has real potential to go the distance. It was also the chance to play a game of Strictly Match-making as the celebrities were paired with their professional partners.
Every year we say this, and this year we’re saying it louder than ever *inserts bold text* whoever is behind pairing the celebrities and pros on Strictly is a genius! We may not have seen them dance, but this year’s partnerships look absolutely perfect. We think even Craig Revel Horwood would award them a 10 for fab-u-lous ness.
But what makes the perfect partnership?
This year’s show really showed us that the celebrities were super happy to be paired with their pros. Susan (who is quite possibly our favourite celebrity)’s happiness and tears at being paired with Kevin had to be the cutest thing ever! We know that as the celebs go on their “journeys” they become best of friends with their pro partner, but it always helps to have a headstart and to get on with your professional partner. We’re sure that Team 10CC as they’re now known will become the best of friends.
As well as getting on with the professional partner, it helps to be able to have fun in training. From the training clips we’ve seen, as well as lots of dancing and hard work, it looks like this year’s cast are having a laugh in training. Dancing is all about having fun and a Strictly journey is always better with a few giggles and laughs along the way.
It’s also important that the partnership look good together. For us one partnership looked absolutely stunning and smokingly hot… Davood and Nadiya. All the couples on this year’s show look uh-may-zing together and we’re pretty sure they’ll be magical on the dancefloor.
Bringing choreography to life on the dance floor and performing with natural chemistry will get you perfect scores and will help you to become the perfect partnership too. For us, having fun along the way will win over our hearts and earn the Glitterball.
From what we’ve seen so far this year, we’re sure that this year’s cast will be the best yet. What makes the perfect partnership for you? Which Strictly 2017 partnership have the edge in your opinion? Comment below or tweet @scd-support to let us know. We look forward to hearing from you.
