Anton Du Beke

Anton Du Beke
Self proclaimed 'Mr Strictly Come Dancing', Anton Du Beke has helped turn ballroom dance into this decade's hottest fad.

Since he started dancing at age 14, Anton has enjoyed huge success with a trail of championship titles to his name.

Here you can find out more about Anton and his love for dance.


See Anton in action during the last series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' or visit his official website.


What's it all about?
Ballroom is two people dancing together to music, touching in perfect harmony.


Is technique everything?
There are ways of masking inadequate technique, but they very much depend on the person being flexible. And I don't mean if they can make Tuesday's or not!


Starting out..
Anton Du Beke
I went along to a dancing school because my sister was there... I looked around and saw all these lovely girls and thought, 'maybe this won't be a bad thing after all'.


Favourite dance?
My favourite dance is the Foxtrot. It's a proper dance with proper music. It has class.


Does the costume rule?
It's not about mincing about the floor in tight keks you know.
