PureDWTS Darcey Bussell And Len Goodman Give Some Christmas Party Dance Tips

Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell and Dancing With The Stars Len Goodman (who also judges on Strictly Come Dancing) gave Radio Times some Christmas party dance tips. Below are Len’s tips which are some good ones (I especially like the last tip. So TRUE!). Be sure to read Darcey’s tips and some pictures at the link as well. Merry Christmas! Who’s ready?

6. Do have a drink “If you’re nervous, have a couple to fortify yourself! It can sometimes work against you, but as long as you enjoy yourself it doesn’t matter.”

7. Do keep yourself to yourself “Step to the side and tap and then step to the other side and tap — that works to any song and always looks good.”

8. Do hide behind others “Never be the first on the dance floor… ever! Wait until there are a few people out there who know what they’re doing and then get in the middle. Don’t hover on the edges looking awkward, you’ll just attract more attention.”

9. Don’t raise your arms “Never bring your hands above your head — keep them below shoulder height at all times. You’re dancing, not drowning.”

10. Don’t be a pest “If the dance floor is crowded, don’t flail about playing the air guitar or sliding around on your knees. Nobody likes a show-off.”

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Bruno Tonioli & Len Goodman Get Their Tango On in Strictly Come Dancing Promo

TGIF!!! It’s t minus 1 hour till the weekend on the east coast, and what better way to celebrate than with this kind of awesome promo for the latest season Strictly Come Dancing, DWTS’s cousin from across the pond? 😎

 It doesn’t get much better than Bruno & Len (and fellow judge Craig Revel Horwood) taking judge Darcey Bussell for a spin around the dance floor to some Bowie 😛 I must say, Len still impresses, even years after competing himself – dude still has great lines.  Bruno wasn’t too shabby, either…although I would say the bulk of his appeal was the drama with which he carried off the steps.  😉 Just one question: when do we get to see Carrie Ann establish some street cred like this?

Thanks to Marianya for finding this little ditty our way – she’s currently traveling and was unable to post this herself.

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble. Check out some of my other work at!
