新一轮舞风降临英国(英)

2005-12-27 00:00British Council

New dance craze

The UK has been gripped with dance fever following an unexpected second successful BBC series of Strictly Come Dancing which has inspired people to take to the floor.

Strictly Come Dancing phenomenon The dance programme sees ten unlikely celebrities including actors, sports personalities and presenters paired up with some of the world's leading professional dancers to ‘foxtrot’ and ‘jive’ across the dance floor.

Over the course of the competition each celebrity is put through their paces by their dance partner learning and practicing dance steps during daily rehearsals in preparation for the live Saturday night show where the couples will face a public and studio vote. Each week the couple with the lowest score are knocked out.

Is ballroom dancing popular again?

Surprisingly YES and not just with old ladies as it has been traditionally. The Lait Dance club in Ipswich has reported a trebling of their membership since the BBC programme began. A lot of these members are younger people especially young couples as well as women and men who go on their own and are partnered with other people at the club.

Dancing our way to better health

Strictly Come Dancing has entertained millions in the home but the popularity of the programme has inspired many to take to the dance floor and join local dance clubs. Stories in the news recently have highlighted how unhealthy we are as a nation but Strictly Come Dancing has inspired people to get off the couch and down to their local dance club. It's introduced a new form of exercise which is fun and a sociable way of getting fit.

What's your dance style?

Whether you prefer the elegance of the waltz, the energy of the jive or the passion of the tango everyone is dancing and it is definitely cool again.
