30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly – Z is for Zendaya!

I like writing stories, so today’s blog post is a story which mummy helped me write a little a lot!

Once upon a time, in a land far far away called America, there lived a beautiful princess called Zendaya who was always smiling and happy. One day, she was invited to appear on a magical show called Dancing with the Stars where she was paired with a Russian Prince called Val. They spent many weeks in the magical ballroom, became great friends and wowed the wise judges and audience with their wonderful dancing.

Zendaya always wore beautiful dresses and one week, she wowed the judges and audience with her magical Foxtrot even scoring a 10 from Len:

She soon became the princess of the Ballroom and went all the way to the final, but didn’t win the treasured glitterball. She did win a great friend in Val and lived happily ever after in the Dancing With the Stars archives.

The End!

We’d love to hear what you thought of that magical dance. You can tweet us @scd_support or comment below. Look forward to hearing from you!

πŸ’› 30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A – Z of Strictly – Y is for Yellow! πŸ’›

I like the colour yellow lots and lots! It reminds me of bananas which I like eating and also the sunshine which means I can go outside and play!

On Strictly there have been lots of dances with yellow costumes. I loved them all! They made me smile even more than Strictly normally does *grins like the cheshire cat.*

I did like two yellow dances more than any others on Strictly! One is Susanna and Kevin’s Viennese Waltz, because she looked like Belle from Beauty and the Beast and the other one is Trishna and Aljaz’s Jive. I really liked that dance because it looked like so much fun and there were people on rollerskates too.

Here are my favourite yellow dances as a video for you all. Mummy said it made her smile, so I hope it’ll make you smile too:

I want to know which of the yellow dances made you smile most. You can tweet me @scd_support or comment below.

Have a great day!

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly – W is for Wicked!

It’s Tuesday and time for me to show you a Tango. I’m going to the theatre with my mummy tonight so today I decided to show you a Wicked theatrical tango which was green!

W is for Wicked

Today I’ve chosen to watch Frankie and Kevin’s Tango from last year on Strictly. I liked this tango lots because it was Wicked. Frankie and Kevin both had lots of sparkles on their costumes. I liked the music and it made me want to dance. Tangos are supposed to look grumpy (according to Mummy) and these two pulled better Paso Faces than I can pull when Mummy tells me I can’t have sweeties.

I also liked this dance because Frankie flew at the end! Strictly is magical just like Unicorns and Kevin taught Frankie to fly.

I really liked this dance, even though Frankie looked green. It was fab-u-lous. Like Donny, I’d have given them a 10 too!

Here are Frankie and Kevin with their awesome and wicked Tango. Enjoy:

I’d love to hear what you thought of that dance. Tweet me @scd_support or comment below. We look forward to hearing from you.

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly. V is for Viennese Waltz!

*Twirls round lots and lots then feels dizzy* I like spinning round lots, especially when I’m wearing my frilly skirt *spins round some more.* Don’t tell mummy I’m wearing my frilly skirt, because I’m not allowded to wear it at school! On Strictly, there’s one dance which has lots of spins and pretty dresses. It’s the Viennese Waltz.

I love the Viennese Waltz, because the dresses look pretty like princess dresses and it goes around and around and around and around.

The only bit of the Viennese Waltz I don’t like is when it makes my mummy cry. She says she’s crying because she’s happy and it’s beautiful, so I give her lots of hugs and tissues to make it all better!

Here are some of my favourite Viennese Waltzes. My favourite ever Viennese Waltz is Susanna and Kevin’s Viennese Waltz from Strictly 2013. I liked this because Susanna looked like Belle from Beauty and the Beast. It made mummy cry (a lot!) but the music was like a lullaby and it had lots and lots and lots of spins!  

What’s your favourite Viennese Waltz? Let me or Mummy know by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below.

Have a great day! 

Bye bye for now

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly – U is for Unicorn!

I like unicorns a lot! They’re better than horses because they fly and they look really pretty and fluffy. They’re magical too and I’m going to ask Santa for one this year.

On Strictly, there have been lots of magical moments and the American Smooth is a really magical dance, because there are lots of lifts which make us girls look like we’re flying (like a unicorn.)

Over the last 2 series that I’ve watched Strictly, I think there are lots of magical American Smooths, just like these in the video playlist below. Sometimes, it’s not just the best American Smooths which are the most magical, but the ones which are most fun to watch:

Now you’ve watched all those dances, I’d like you to let me know which is your favourite. Tweet me @scd_support or comment below to let me know.

I’m off to the farm to see some horses unicorns without horns. Have a great day!

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly. T is for Thom or Tom.

Today it’s the weekend and it’s also Salsa Saturday. Mummy made a special salsa last night which was really yummy even thought it had green tomatos in it:

Anyway, enough about food because I’m feeling hungry. As it’s Salsa Saturday, today I need to show you a Salsa dance. I’ve picked two salsas. One was from Thom and Iveta last year and the other one was from Tom and Camilla (who judged the tour and danced this even before I was born!)

Thom and Iveta’s Salsa

When I first watched this dance, I liked it because it reminded me of when I go swimming! Mummy said it made her feel a little hot. I’m not sure what she means, because they were dancing in Autumn and it’s cold in Autumn. Maybe she was wearing too many jumpers.

I also got to see this dance on the tour and it looked like lots of fun, even if Thom did lose his top! I think Craig Revel Horwood stole it from him because he was feeling mean.

Tom and Camilla’s Salsa

I wasn’t even born when this dance was performed, but Mummy showed it to me and suggested I put it in this post. It looked amazing and was full of turns and spins. I want to dance like that when I’m older! I also like Camilla’s dress because it’s very pretty and sparkly. The whole routine was fab-u-lous and I loved it!

Now you’ve seen both dances, I’d like you to help me choose the best of the two. Just vote in this poll below and Mummy will let you know the winners just before the Strictly Support Group at 7pm. *wonders if they’ll win a glitterball or a nice prize*

I’m off now to my gymnastics class *attempts a cartwheel.* Mummy’ll be on twitter from 7pm (my bedtime) with a special Strictly Support Group. She hopes to see you there.

Bye bye for now.

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly. S is for Scott Mills

There are lots of things beginning with the letter S on Strictly. Sequins, Sparkles, Strictly, Salsa, Shoes, Samba… *scratches head.* A famous Samba was performed by another S who became a crab on Strictly 2014. Today’s Strictly fix is brought to you by Scott Mills and Ariel from Grimsby Joanne Clifton.

As it’s Friday, mummy said I need to choose a Foxtrot so I’ve chosen his spooky halloween foxtrot. I liked this dance for several reasons:

1) I liked Joanne’s outfit because she looked like my Monster High Doll. She can bend her back more than my dolly too, she must be magical!

2) Scott looked like Len. I think that scared Craig so he didn’t give them a 10.

3) They tried and had fun and I thought it looked really good. I gave them a 10! I don’t know why the judges didn’t like it, I think they need to practice spinning on the floor because it’s lots of fun.

4) I liked the music. I can’t click my fingers yet, mummy is teaching me how to click your fingers now.

I really liked Scott because he dressed up as a crab because he tried his hardest and him and Joanne from Grimsby Ariel from Grimsby looked like they were great friends! I wasn’t happy that they went home, because I voted lots and lots of times for them and think Craig should have let Scott and Joanne dance one more dance.

Here are Scott and Joanne with their spooky and frightening *thinks, they’re not scary at all* Foxtrot. Have a lovely afternoon and enjoy watching it:

I’d love to hear what you thought of that dance. Tweet me @scd_support or comment below. I look forward to hearing from you.

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly. R is for Rumba!

I’m only 5, so normally if there’s a Rumba on Strictly, Mummy tells me to close my eyes, because the Rumba isn’t a nice dance for little girls to watch. Last year, I was allowed to watch one Rumba and I really liked it!

I was allowed to watch Frankie and Kevin’s Rumba last year. I liked Frankie’s dress as she looked like a Ballerina and with Kevin together they looked like they were out of a Fairytale.

I liked the music and the dancing as well *sucks thumb* it had a good story to it and the dancing looked beautiful. I would have given it a 10 like Bruno, but the other judges didn’t like it as much. I think I need to tell them when to put out their 10 paddle this year, especially Craig!

If this is what all Rumbas are like, I don’t know why mummy doesn’t always let me watch them *stomps feet and pulls a paso face.* Here are Frankie and Kevin with their beautiful Rumba:

I hope you liked watching that dance. I’d love to hear what you liked about it. Tweet @scd_support or comment below to let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly – Q is for Quickstep!

There’s one dance on Strictly I love just as much as the Jive and that’s the Quickstep. I like it because it’s really really fast and the people dancing it always look like they’re flying. It reminds me of playtime at school, because we always run after eachother. I think I’ll be good at the quickstep when I’m older because I like running, just ask Mummy who had to chase after me the other day when I was in the park.

I also like the quickstep, because it looks like a happy dance and it always makes me and my Mummy smile whenever we see it! Mummy says it’s the perfect dance for today, because lots of people feel sad and it’s hump day (which has nothing to do with camels apparently – I don’t believe her!) so it’ll make people smile just as much as a marshmallow and white chocolate cookie makes me smile! *grins like the cheshire cat thinking of cookies* πŸ˜€

Mummy’s shown me some great quicksteps which have appeared over the last 11 years on Strictly, but my favourite quickstep has to be Caroline and Pasha’s Quickstep from last year. I liked it because it looked like they were having lots of fun dancing it, and they even had a teddy bear and a horsey on the dancefloor at the same time too!

She’s helped me make a playlist of some of her (and my) favourite ever quicksteps. Watch this below and smile:

I’d like to know which quickstep is your all time favourite dance. Let me know by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. 

I look forward to hearing from you. Have a great day and keep smiling (as well as dancing!) *dances off back to school!*

30 Day Challenge – Bella’s A to Z of Strictly. P is for @Pashakovalev

It’s Tuesday & today I wanted to talk about the Paso Doble or Pandas 🐼, but as it’s mummy’s blog, I decided I’d be nice and ask her to pick today’s letter!

Here’s how our chat went earlier:

πŸ‘Έ Bella: So mummy, what does P stand for on Strictly for you?

πŸ‘© Mummy: Well it can stand for lots of things. It could stand for the Paso Doble!

πŸ‘Έ Bella: Like my favourite ever dance on Strictly from Susanna and Kevin!

πŸ‘© Mummy: Yes, like the Paso Doble, but you know mummy likes another P on Strictly!

πŸ‘Έ Bella: Yes, mummy! *jumps up and down* What is it?

πŸ‘© Mummy: Well, it’s Pasha!

πŸ‘Έ Bella: Why’s that mummy?

πŸ‘© Mummy: Well *thinks carefully* He’s our current reigning pro champion, His choreography is legendary (look at his quicksteps, paso dobles, tangos and jives!)  and he also is a lovely person, a great and patient teacher.

πŸ‘Έ Bella: I like Pasha too mummy! I even have a toy penguin named after him! 🐧 I like your answer mummy! As it’s Tuesday, what’s your favourite Pasha Tango for Tango Tuesday?

πŸ‘© Mummy: Well, I loved Caroline and Pasha’s Argentine Tango and also loved his and Kimberley’s Ballroom Tango. They had great choreography, lots of passion and drama in both routines. They were truly uh-may-zing!

πŸ‘Έ Bella: Well, mummy, I like these tangos so have made a little playlist of Pasha’s best Tangos!

Those are our favourite Pasha Tangos. Which Tango wins the vote for you? Let us know by tweeting @scd_support or commenting below. We look forward to hearing from you!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Cassie and Bella!
