Post categories:

BBC Strictly James | 14:58 UK time, Thursday, 13 October 2011

SCD is now in full swing; the first couple to leave the competition last Sunday was Edwina and Vincent - who's next?

This Saturday the 13 remaining couples will need to up their game and show their theatrical side...it's Broadway week! Who will put on a Wicked dance? And who will produce a Rocky Horror Show?

Check out the EXCLUSIVE rehearsal footage of the couples in training. You can also see MORE of the rehearsals tonight on It Takes Two, 6.30pm, BBC Two.

    Looking good! Bring it on "Broadway ... and all that Jazz!"

  • Comment number 2.

    Rory and Erin have got the best studio by miles..... some of them have to train in small windowless rooms!

  • Comment number 3.

    Wondering what sort of Tango Jason & Kristina are doing as it looks more Salsa.

  • Comment number 4.

    Rehearsal footage is such a tease - we don't know whether it was filmed on Monday or today! Four days is a long time on Strictly. Chelseeee seems a lot more contained, which could be dynamite for this dance and Alex's arm movements were looking gorgeous on the footage we saw on ITT tonight - she really seems to be starting to understand about finishing moves and all those sit ups are helping her core strength. Good on you, girls, looking forward to seeing how it all turns out on Saturday.

    Russell is doing well, he can dance, I love his enthusiasm! Just needs to watch his shoulders!..

  • Comment number 6.

    Should it be called west end night and not broadway night because broadway night is more American.

    But that is only a small thing. I am looking forward to it.

    Yes Marie, Russell is doing well.

  • Comment number 7.

    All looking good I think. Intrigued by where exactly they're going to put the cage in Holly and Artem's routine, it looked huge! Alex's arms looked gorgeous at the beginning, and Chelsee looked more controlled. Excited for Saturday!!

  • Comment number 8.

    Everyone is looking good and working hard - Chelsee is improving by leaps and bounds - great to see Russell dancing in hold - he really looks good. Yes Jason and Kristina don't look as if they are dancing a Tango perhaps its the start before they get into hold - Alex seems to show improvement each time we see her - yes it's all looking very exciting.

    Thought Audley & Natalie had switched to a Quick Step?

  • Comment number 11.

    Mrs Arcanum yes I think you are right - Quick Step will be tough but whatever they dance do hope Audley is going to be safe this week - Natalie is doing such a good job teaching him and he's applying himself very well for such a big chap - sure it's got to be Nancy and Anton for the chop?

    @ flatfeet (me too)
    We can but hope. The vagaries of the voting public are never to be discounted. :-S

  • Comment number 13.

    i know i'm going back a year but are artem and kara still together?? please someone tell me yes

  • Comment number 14.

    Didn't Erin and Austin do a jive to You Can't Stop The Beat from Hairspray three years ago in series 6? Anita Dobson and Robin Windsor, fine they doing a jive but do it to another song because when I hear that song You Can't Stop the Beat, i think of Erin and Austin's Jive.

  • Comment number 15.

    I am so looking forward to tomorrow's show!! All the celebs are looking fab!!!

  • Comment number 16.

    lostchachachamp -I have just YouTubed Austin and Erin's jive and yes your are right about the music. And Anita & Robin will have a tough act to follow that one!! I just wish they'd been able to do either a Charleston to a Thoroughly Modern Millie number, or an American Smooth to Hello Dolly. At least Anita has been in both of those shows!

    Also, why are Dan and Katya doing a Viennese Waltz to Queen's Somebody to Love? We Will Rock You hasn't even been on Broadway! As I am a Queen fan club member I kind of know about these things!!

  • Comment number 17.

    Yes Karen, Kara and Artem still together and in love - not engaged yet but they have moved in together.
