SCD 2018 Tango's 'Little Bit Of Honesty' Thread

Smile The forum wouldn't be the same without Tango's thread, so I would like to thank him for keeping it going year after year, giving us all a space in which to meditate, cogitate, and ventilate. Suspect

Hello all my virtual SCD friends and comrades. cheers
I got a little shock when I tried to access the forum this afternoon. I was diverted to another webpage (with a very similar name) that wouldn't let me log in, or recognise my details. After a prolonged 'oh no' groan, I tracked down the brilliant Sid on Twitter, who slipped me the right link - phew, panic over. I'm so excited I might need to order in some tenna pads!

Hey, B4p, nice to hear you back and in good order. I'll be happy to see the honesty thread carrying on because it isn't my thread, but as you say, a place we can all contribute to. It has being going for a year or two now and hopefully this season will be no different with all the old faithfuls and some new ones too. Been an awful long time since I first got dragged protestingly onto a youth club dance floor at fourteen to shuffle around the floor to Victor Sylvester playing Mr Sandman, but my love affair with dance is still undiminished as a I approach my 79th birthday next month. Strike up the band maestro.... lol!

That sounds intriguing. A reluctant vlogger or budding TV star?

Hey, keep us informed on that one Sax; sounds intruiging. Meanwhile I've given up all hope of seeing any real dance based on basic ballroom skills. It'll be a learned weekly routine to make the pros look skilled in choreography with not much recognisable from the L en G oodman encyclopedia of walnut pickling and knickers in the air chucking. I'm betting if you asked any previopus contestants up to dance in a ballroom dance school now they'd want to practise for a fortnight to perform a waltz. No, I'll treat is as an entertainment show with pro demonstrations as the highlights and C.R.H and Silver tongued Italian Stallion as the comedy. Bring it on.. lol!

So we have 2 famous TV stars in our midst now...sax and Mr T!! I did nearly go on Eggheads once with our pub quiz team- blimey it's like Fort Knox getting onto those with all the background checks and security affraid - but we couldn't get dates when we could all make it so my TV career ended there...I was quite relieved tbh, it wasn't my choice I was just dragged along with the others!
I still think we should badger the ITT researchers to get us all on the Friday show one day ... Who can sleuth an email or @twitter????   Oy Sid you're practically BFF with our Marian on there surely you can swing it?! Basketball

Good idea Alls! I think Mr T we might be surprised this year re dance abilities. I'm hoping to bedazzled and back to basics emerge. ...Maybe our prodancers will stop the comedy?

I hope so Sax. All the Ballroom and Latin basics are beautiful rythmic and graceful dances on their own without the need for cartwheels and splits. I never can recall Fred, Ginger, Danny Kay, Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse, Eleanor Powell, Rita Hayworth or any of the other legion of great dancers doing or needing them. I'm all for skill and talent emerging, but strict tempo was the mandate that taught the world. Get back to basic guys and gals and do something we recognise... Wink

I've just been rewatching Joe & Katya's novel samba to 'Money' from Caberet. I still think it was brilliant, despite howls of protest from the Dark Side and on Twitter that it wasn't Rio carnival enough, too slow and not a real samba. I liked the slower style, the acting, the costumes, but most of all, that I could recognise lots of samba steps.

Once again I make no apology for re-posting what I think one of the most beautiful examples of the art of ballroom dance. Ian Waite and Jodie's "Greensleeves" waltz. Wink

That's stunning Tango, they matched beautifully. I miss seeing Ian dance. I saw him, Oti and Ot's husband Marius dance in Kettering a few months ago. He was great with the audience, lots of chit-chat and gossip in between the dancing. I'm surprised a place wasn't offered to Marius if more male dancers were needed. After all, he did dance in the Strictly Tour Show and he's a great dancer.

Just bumping the thread, all ready for tonight.

I admit it, I CAN'T WAIT!!   It's been such a rubbish year for me for various reasons,  so the thought of Strictly escapism every weekend followed by weekday ITT  is filling me with comfort and joy.

And, like every year, I'll probably be one of the biggest grumblers once the show starts - but sure that's just part of the fun of it!
