BOOM – Blackpool


So wish I had access to BBC today to watch Strictly Come Dancing live from Blackpool.

This show is like the US Dancing With the Stars just a million times better and funnier.

Blackpool is the home of ballroom dancing and way back when in the 1960s it was the place where the original Come Dancing series took place.

The original program was something that you watched if there was absolutely nothing else on TV. It was serious ballroom dancing and to be kind your Granny might have likes it!

Strictly, as it is fondly known in the UK, has a huge audience and a cult following. The judges are such characters but what makes it so good is that the personalities who compete are truly amateurs. Some of them have no clue about dancing when they start.

The participants make us mortals feel that anything is possible with hard work,  determination and a good teacher.

Just need to wait for the upload tomorrow!
