Tonight, Team Glita (Anita and Gleb) had their Strictly journey cut short as they were eliminated from the competition.
If Strictly were judged on determination, courage and creativity alone, these two would win it! They both had these qualities by the bucketload!
Over the last 12 weeks, Anita and Gleb have sparkled and shone in all their performances. For his first series, Gleb’s choreography has been creative, unique and so much fun to watch. As a teacher, he has transformed Anita (who had no prior dance training) into a great dancer and we’re sure they’ll remain friends for life.
Their team name, Team Glita was apt for these two. My 5 year old was a little upset hearing they were going home tonight. In her opinion the Strictly final won’t be the final without Team Glita! It needs to be more sparkly!
For us, who could forget the many Gleb Specials? That risk-taking Charleston which stole our hearts, That American Smooth with THE Gleb Special, That Paso Doble which rocked the Tower Ballroom and the enchanting and spell-binding Malificent Viennese Waltz. Their dances have been some of our favourite Strictly moments ever.
For those of us lucky enough to be going to see the tour, we will get to see them perform together, however we will miss seeing them perform in the final. Here are some of our favourite Team Glita Moments:
We’d like this post to become a tribute to them. Comment below with your messages of support for Team Glita. We’ll make sure they see them.
