Strictly Come Dancing Professional Jive

Now for something definitely with the Wow Factor.

For those who don't know it we have a TV programme in the UK called Strictly Come Dancing. For non dancers like myself, who definitely have two left feet, I for one am always amazed and wowed watching these wonderful dancers.  I have great admiration for those who can dance really well like these folk but for me this would be Mission Impossible.

Anyone for a Jive?  Isn't this fantastic? Does anyone know the song?
And thank you Monica at "Creative Beast" - she identifies the song as "Land of a Thousand Dances".

And this is even better!! Quite amazing!!

And the music?  "Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol.  . . . . . very catchy and lively.

Just how these ladies dance like that in high heels without tripping up beats me!

Hang on a minute!! I know someone who may be able to dance this!! Marguerite at Cajun Delights perhaps - are you dancing today, cher? LOL. Perhaps you might be the lady with the long brunette hair! . . .  and the redhead might be one of your dancing pals perhaps.

I wish I could do it - boy, it looks great fun.  But I expect all these dancers worked extraordinary hard to reach this standard and as the saying goes, "Yer get out of this life what yer put into it - nothing comes for free!"

I wonder if I take up Jive dancing whether I will appear as young , fit, energetic, handsome, happy, rich, gorgeous chap LOL . . . . like these highly professional dancers! - aren't they fantastic?  Oh well, perhaps in the next life.


  1. I watched both videos....and I love the music, Eddie.
    Like you, I'm fascinated by those who can dance like this. They are incredible dancers.
    This was a foot-tapping visit to your blog, this evening. Thank you for sharing these videos with us.
    In case I don't get a chance to chat with you again before Christmas, I do want to wish you and your family a blessed and happy Christmas, my friend.
    Hugs to you,

  2. Wow is right!!! Now that's some nitty-gritty dancin!!! Very aerobic and the videos are fab! I would love to dance with the chap with the jet black hair! LOL Thanks for the compliment, but I don't think that I could do it with high heels on! But maybe with my leopard ballet flats! LOL Merci for the fun post! Cheers!

  3. Thanks for inviting me to "join in the dance" Eddie! These videos are fantastic and remind me of the days I did a bit of ballroom dancing =-)

    BTW: the first song is originally sung by Wilson Pickett and it's called "Land of a Thousand Dances". My favorite dance to the song is by Patrick Barber in "The Full Monty" - his moves are HILARIOUS and quite good for someone who is NOT a professional dancer by trade =-)

    Happy Holidays to you and your family Eddie!


Welcome, pull up a chair and enjoy
