You’ve seen the TV show—now come see the real thing. On April 11th at 7.00 in Buchanan, the Ballroom and Latin Dance Society will present Strictly Come Dancing, pairing up local celebrities with ballroom professionals to compete in an event like no other. We asked the organisers a few questions about the event; here’s what they had to say.

 

Describe the event in three words.

Strictly Come Dancing!

 

What makes this event an unmissable part of On the Rocks this year?

Unlike most dancing shows, Strictly Come Dancing is a competition between several people who have never danced before and have had to prepare routines under huge time pressure (about 2 weeks or so). It adds quite a lot of spice to their performances—not to mention that they all are relatively known in the Bubble. Also, the public get to vote for their favourites.

 

What’s something people might not know about the show?

Apart from the competition part of the event we have (actual) professionals attending from other Scottish cities to demonstrate some advanced-level ballroom and Latin dances. We also have guests from Edinburgh Salsa Society, and the Hummingbirds A Cappella group singing in the meantime—so there’s actually much more to the show that the competition itself.
