As you all know by now, Saturday is not just Strictly Day, but also Samba and Salsa Saturday. These dances are the perfect way to celebrate the start of the weekend and any special occasion.
Today is the lovely Denise’s (@strictlylucy2) birthday. As we’re super polite, we’d never reveal how old a lady is, but we hope she has a fantastic day. She’s helped us out a lot over the last year and for that we’re very greatful. As it is her special day, we asked her to name her favourite Samba and Salsa routine, to help her celebrate.
For her favourite Samba she’s chosen Zoe Ball and Ian Waite’s Samba. She’s chosen this dance as it’s “what samba is all about – having fun. Zoe & Ian looked like they were having a ball. No pun intended” We agree! This dance was sensational and Zoe brought her dress to life! The music was great, the choreography fabulous and the dancing was fit for a space on the Rio Carnival. We loved it just as much. Here are Zoe and Ian with their Samba:
For her Salsa, Denise chose Mark Ramprakash and Karen Hardy’s Hip-Shaking Shimmying Salsa. She says “It was Hot. Mark was quite a shy character and that dance did something to him. He just came out of his shell performing.” This dance really showed Mark as a contender. Despite a wardrobe malfunction, he showed his fighting spirit wanting to do his best. Karen’s Choreography was pure fun and the dancing made us want to get up on our feet and dance at home. We loved it and hope you do too. Here are Mark and Karen with their Salsa:
