Robbie Savage and Ola Jordan

It's TEAM SAVOLA! This dynamic duo is made up of footballer Robbie Savage and professional dancer Ola Jordan. After receiving a frosty reception from the judges in the first week, this pair of blond-bombshells have come on leaps and bounds perfecting their turns on the dance floor.

Are you impressed with Robbie's scoring ability? Or maybe you think Ola's Salsa skills are worth a glitter ball- whatever your reasons, you can talk about it all here!

    Great team name ! You could be the first to win strictly twice Ola !!

  • Comment number 2.

    Robbie - You may have been used to seeing the red card on the football field but hopefully with the latin entertainment and the lovely ballroom dancing the Strictly red card won't come your way for quite a while

  • Comment number 3.

    Looking forwards to your Paso Doble on Saturday (not sure about Robbie's hair and teeth as posted on Twitter though!!)

  • Comment number 4.

    Absolutely loved their dance on Saturday! What a show off he is...in a good way!
    Ola is fantastic too. Could they be that famous "dark horse?"

  • Comment number 5.

    wooo, Team Savola!! love them, love Robbie more than i was expecting (thanks to twitter ;) ) and who doesn't love Ola?! Would love for them to win.....don't know if James could deal with Ola winning twice before he has a chance to though! ;)

  • Comment number 6.

    Go Team Savola! You are brilliant. I love the enthusiasm you put into your dances and the obvious joy you have for dancing. I have loved all of your dances so far and can't wait for your paso doble on Saturday. You have got my vote.

  • Comment number 7.

    Great team name but it would be much better if it was Savla it just sounds a bit better and make sure your still in because who can not resist the blonde bombshells and white teeth

  • Comment number 8.

    Well done Robbie and Ola

    I didn't like your first dance, i agreed with the judges but WOW have you made up for it since!

    I look forward to seeing your dance every week. Keep up the hard work and i'll keep voting.

  • Comment number 9.

    Team Savola are my favourite team in the competition although to be honest I love all the couples, but I think it's nice to see Robbie's vunerable side, I used to love watching him play football to find out what trouble he would get into but I had no idea he could be so charming! Well done on all your dances last weekend was my favourite, oh and I forgot to say your little boys are adorable!!

  • Comment number 10.

    I'm wonderig what the "make or break" (apparently mentioned by Robbie in an interview) ending for the Paso will be - hopefully no potential injury!!

  • Comment number 11.

    Great team name joining two bright stars on Strictly, Ola and Robbie could win the Glitter Ball they certainly have the talent, Good Luck to you both.

  • Comment number 12.

    Goodly comments re Team Savola on Nicole Cutler's blog:-

    https://strictly-come-dancing.blogspot.com/2011/10/week-4-review-of-couples.html?spref=tw for their jive.

  • Comment number 13.

    robbie is one of the celebrities is improving the most . hope they stay in a lot longer

  • Comment number 14.

    The dream team for our house - hubby is a massive Ola fan and I have adored Robbie for quite some time --c'mon Savola make our day and win the competion

  • Comment number 15.

    I am definitely a Team Savola supporter and have really loved your Tango and Jive and I wish you luck to get through to the next saturday. All the best and keep up all the good work.

  • Comment number 16.

    I think Robbie has really got into the spirit of the show and at least is a true beginner unlike Jason Donovan who has had stage dancing experience and cannot be said to be a novice. Good on you Robbie and Ola is a great teacher.

  • Comment number 17.

    Hi Robbie - have loved you from the beginning and you bring tremendous energy to your dancing. But tonight the pelvic thrusts were too much. This is a family show and you just walked your way through the dancing and then relied on sexual innuendo. Sorry Robbie, but you lost my vote. Tacky stuff stuff Ola

  • Comment number 18.

    Please Robbie, keep your crotch to yourself. This was a dance too far - time to go if you have to rely on this disgusting behaviour.

  • Comment number 19.

    I disagree with the comments made about Robbie's thrusts in his dance. He was dancing to a Michael Jackson song, I seem to remember that Michael Jackson did some of that himself when he was dancing. I think it is very clever of Ola to give Robbie lots of characterisation in his dances. I thought it was very entertaining and he definately had votes off my mom, my husband and me. Go Team Savola!

  • Comment number 20.

    I'm on the side of tacky beyond belief. Not much dance content there either.
    Ola, you're much better than this.
    Gone RIGHT off Aleesha now too, inappropriate comments, over-marking etc.

  • Comment number 21.

    The thrusting on the floor was within the dance. Maybe a bit overdone. Jumping up on the table was more likely to be Ola's idea of a joke in reaction to the press's articles about CRH's slabbering over Harry. She probably included that thrust to play to CRH's more desperate side and to have a laugh. Hopefully we won't see a return to last series OTT kissing judges and the likes. It quickly becomes boring.

  • Comment number 22.

    Ola - Please remember SCD is a family show and tens of thousands of young children are watching. Robbie's thrusting was completely inappropriate at such an early time on a Saturday. You are a much better choreographer than this so stick to showing his dancing ability.

  • Comment number 23.

    We always watch Strictly -but this year we are rooting for you - there's only one Robbie Savage - I have a lovely photo of you, Nigel Clough and my little boy, Jonathan, taken last season. My husband has always supported Derby even though we are from Essex. Come on Robbie!!!! xxxxx

  • Comment number 24.

    Disappointed with Robbie's sexually explicit stuff. This isn't appropriate for a family friendly programme

  • Comment number 25.

    Well, glad Ola had a laugh but many of us with kids and grandkids who are now immitating this didn't. Ola - this is television.

  • Comment number 26.

    How I agree with the comments deploring your very tacky and inappropriate routine tonight. With millions of children watching it was VERY poor viewing. And I did not care for it either. I thought this was a balllroom dancing competition, not a night out with the lads on a stag/hem night.
    Sorry, Ola, not funny, I thought you were better than this.

  • Comment number 27.

    I wouldnt have known Robbie Savage from a bar of soap before this series of strictly and have been very impressed and entertained......until last night. We saw a clip of you last week I think with your two little boys in the training room. Do you think last nights routine would be appropriate for them to watch? Ola, he doesnt need these tacky tricks , you are both much better than this. Good luck for this coming week and here's to a great dance next Saturday.

  • Comment number 28.

    Well done Robbie for getting through to the next week. Can't wait to see what you'll be dancing next.

  • Comment number 29.

    Hi Ola, i watch strictly for one reason only, that is to watch you dance, i think you are a terrific looking girl and a fantastic dancer. good look in the competition, hope you and robbie win it.

  • Comment number 30.

    I also was very disappointed with Robbie's thrusting. Tastless and totally unsuitable for a family programme. I also agree with mattzings comments about Aleesha (no 20), she did herself no favours on Saturday.

  • Comment number 31.

    Dear Robbie and Ola I have been a fan of you from the start but an awful lot of people were offended on Saturday and I hope you are big enough to take this on board.
    Ola, Chris Hollins wasn't a great dancer but your brilliant choreography won the competition.
    Over the last couple of seasons I personally think Strictly has been going downhill so please don't help it to go any further.

  • Comment number 32.

    I aggree with other people, Robbie was too crude on Saturday. My 8 year old son was really embarassed and my 11 year old daughter said " That's disgusting". Really innappropriate stuff for a Saturday night family show. I thought he was bad enough when he birped really loudly in Ola's face and this has compounded it. Please Ola we are big fans of yours so more tasteful
    choreography please.

  • Comment number 33.

    Robbie and Ola
    Absolutely love your dancing. OK not always the best but always so full of energy and entertainment. Keep up the good work. I will keep voting for you.

  • Comment number 34.

    I agree with most of the comments here. Saturday's performance was embarrassing.

  • Comment number 35.

    I was rating Robbie as a Glitterball contender, but this routine was awful.

    Last week looked like an audition for a shampoo advert, i hate to think what he wanted on Saturday.

  • Comment number 36.

    Amazing how wrong you can be about people, isn't it? Thought you were a breath of fun fresh air Robbie and loved your energy. Then you went and spoilt it all on Saturday and gave us a horrible vulgar performance with virtually no dancing it (Glad to hear your five year old does that movement - I'm afraid we don't share your views parenting). Then, when asked for a comment, instead of just saying you were sorry if you'd offended anyone but hoped people would vote for you next time, you Tweet that people have it in for you? Sounds like footballers chip on the shoulder stuff to me. Why would anyone have it in for you? Believe it or not this isn't about you - it is about what we, the viewers feel. Try getting your head round that, get your hands away from your crutch, put a smile on your face, concentrate on your dancing and show some humility.

  • Comment number 37.

    I hope this blonde guy is the next to go, he was absolutely repulsive playing with his crotch and imitating sex, the show is about dancing not sexually simulating the audience.

    Dancing is about good footwork, style, grace and technique, not playing with your crotch!

    He was sickening and unit he goes, I will not watch the show again!

  • Comment number 38.

    Whatever time this program goes out, it is fact ... children watch it!

    Robbie was disgusting, his moves had no connection with dancing however perhaps he thinks a bit of sexual excitement will win him votes ... the sooner he goes the better!

  • Comment number 39.

    I do think people are getting slightly carried away and exaggerating here! It wasn't that bad! It's nice to see Robbie on the show and proving that footballers can dance. I look forward to seeing you on Saturday night's show Robbie, you're certainly one of the best dancers in this year's competition.

  • Comment number 40.

    A message to you Robbie - nobody was "out there to get you".
    I have been a fan since you started SCD and I liked you as a footballer.
    You need to do some serious thinking though. Just because there were only a few hundred official complaints your routine (which was definitely sleazy) may very well stop many others voting for you.
    Maybe a brief "sorry for any offence" from both you and Ola on ITT or next Saturdays show wouldn't be a bad idea.

  • Comment number 41.

    Precisely Scorpio-gran. But footballers don't seem to do humility. A nice little message would have helped a lot, but instead he is tweeting about people being out to get him. Ridiculous.

  • Comment number 42.

    Oh dearie, dearie me. Dont be such a big girls blouse Robbie, 'out to get me' 'dont like me' . A lot of people do like you and enjoyed watching you apart from this weekend. Did you really believe that nobody would be offended by that odious routine? If so, it really is true that footballers brains are in their boots.

  • Comment number 43.

    Pick yourself up Robbie and show that you can dance!

    (Incidentally I don't remember such a fuss from people about simulated sex in Matt and Aliona's salsa - the "gyrating on the floor", as the judges termed it)

  • Comment number 44.

    Ola you will ALWAYS have my voting support. My telephone bill has only just recovered from Team COLA! Least said about last year the better! Thank you for making my Saturdays!

  • Comment number 45.

    I've just been reading all these Comments... People need to get over themselves and chill.Kids have NO idea what Robbies hip thrusts might have signified... The more fuss you make, the more their attention is drawn to the matter......

  • Comment number 46.

    Good luck on Saturday with the waltz, Robbie and Ola. I have seen some of the training and I can't wait to see you dance on Saturday night.

  • Comment number 47.

    Oh, well as long as the kids don't have any idea what the hip thrusts are, that's alright is it? Give me a break. I don't like them and I have kids. Vulgar, stuff with absolutely no dancing and then we get all these silly 'poor me' Tweets from the manly footballer. Pathetic.

  • Comment number 48.

    A thrust too many and then a hissy fit on twitter? Oh pleeeaase. I really liked him at first too.

  • Comment number 49.

    Teddyandgypsy no.47

    I have no kids, but find it 100 % unnessary that thrusting, , and WHY WHY in Graigs face ??
    I don't think Graig was waiting for you Robby,
    Sexy ?? NO not to me, more VULGAR !!

  • Comment number 50.

    Robbie and Ola - you are on ITT tonight. Be big enough to say sorry to those you offended.

  • Comment number 51.

    Enough! Let's move on now and look forward to Robbie and Ola's waltz.

  • Comment number 52.

    Thank you @sequin for your voice of reason. Let's all move on now, although why so many people got upset in the first place still baffles me!

  • Comment number 53.

    I'm with you there sequin!

    Looking forwards to an elegant waltz - presumably without stairs!! (ITT last night)

  • Comment number 54.

    I luv u robbie! ur gr8! Always voting for u! luv Emma SAVAGE (that really is my last name!)

  • Comment number 55.

    I love you Robbie and Ola. Loved your waltz this week, thought you were brilliant and thought you acted the dance really well and don't mind all those narrow minded people going on and on about the Paso the other week, you did your best.

    I really hope you stay for a while and can't wait for your next dance. Good Luck.

  • Comment number 56.

    Elegant and pensive - perfect for the song - can't think why Craig wanted a smile - would have looked idiotic to those lyrics.

  • Comment number 57.

    Robbie, I thought your waltz was beautiful. You were obviously very moved by the dance and I felt your emotion. Your posture and execution of the dance had me in tears. You were immense!!!

  • Comment number 58.

    Moved by the dance doricdoris? He couldn't have looked more bored and sulky if he'd been auditioning for the Woodentops.

  • Comment number 59.

    Yes, I was moved. The waltz was beautiful. It certainly matched up with the good waltz I have watched by male celeb over the past years, mainly from series 2 to series 6, when dancing still mattered then. Last evening was the very first time I voted, and it was for Robie, thanks to Craig's comment, which IMO mediocre and stereotyped. It's just so easy (and lazy?) for him to just say 'no emotion' or no connection. Bruno gave a much better and correct comment of the dance with good understanding. Bruno looked at the dance and referred it to the music to work out and understand what was trying to deliver, not to pick from a group of pre-set statements from pre-set concept.

  • Comment number 60.

    I didn't enjoy it.
    He looked uncomfortable with the "acting," side of it.

    That said, anything but back to the "eyes & teeth," obsession which has a person smiling through the most desperate of songs..something, even some of the pro's are guilty of, at times.

    But it looked to me like he was thinking it through and the "tension," which was mentioned was, for me, not down to his "acting skills."

    In the end, I don't think he's one of the stronger dancers in the competition and is unlikely to make it much further, IMO.


  • Comment number 61.

    Last weeks dance was within the limits of strictly. But I absolutely liked Robbie and Ola's dance this week as it had more Waltz than any of the other dances. Lately strictly is becoming a "SHOW DANCE" platform for all dances. A Bit more of the actual dance would be an advantage. As people will want to learn to dance on what they have seen on the tv and not what it actually is to dance.

  • Comment number 62.

    Unfortunately Robbie was more nervous, and therefore tense, when coming on to dance than he had been previously and it showed in his dancing - he wasn't "bored and sulky".

    He does get uptight about low marks when he's trying to improve but he's tweeted that, on reflection, the marks from Craig were the second highest he's had from Craig so not that bad after all.

    He had two Question of Sport Live Tour dates in the week prior to the show which would have cut down on his available training time (OK I know that Chelsee has even less) but he did start as an absolute non-dancer.

  • Comment number 63.

    I cannot see how CRH said no emotion - I thought it was a very well thought out dance, and matched the mood of the song - the sadness of a broken heart was there for all to see. I think you are so well matched, and I hope you stay in the competition until the end. Robbie think twice before you use Twitter!!!!

  • Comment number 64.

    I have no problem with his dancing and liked him in the early weeks. Could even have forgiven him the pelvic thrusts if he'd had the grace to apologise. What finished him for me was his inability to take cricisim and his sulky 'people are out to get me' attitude. He has a lot of growing up to do.

  • Comment number 65.

    Have just registered as a new user to this blog and cannot believe my eyes at some of the comments about Robbies "sexually explicit" dancing, what a load of RUBBISH!. Michael Jackson based his whole career dancing like this, Robbie was dancing to one of his tracks and used his moves, people taking this too far! Anyway Rob your my favourvite! will keep voting for you and i'm coming to see you at one of your signings, keep yer chin up! x

  • Comment number 66.

    Well done Robbie and Ola for getting through to the next stage, I really think you are improving each week and think some of the comments were harsh and I hope people now stop going on about the Paso from last week and move on like we all do if there is a dance we don't like and frankly, I don't think he was being sulky, just disappointed with the marks when he felt he was bringing the dance alive with some of Michael Jackson's trademark moves.

  • Comment number 67.

    Come on people, take a chill pill and get out more! Michael Jackson has been giving your kids performances like this for years, didn't hear any complaints then?? Just enjoy Robbie & Ola's performance for what it was, and move on. Robbie has shown that he puts his all into his efforts to dance, give him and all the other Celebs the credit they deserve for their efforts, after all, could and/or would you be brave enough to go out there in front of the nation and try and do something you know nothing about? methinks not. Before anyone thinks I am a fan, I had never heard or seen Robbie Savage prior to SCD, just commenting on what I see.

  • Comment number 68.

    Loved you this week, real proper dancing and should have been top of the leader board.

  • Comment number 69.

    I loved the dance on Saturday, I was amazed the judges didn't find it emotional, I thought it was really moving. Of course Robbie didn't smile- he was supposed to be broken hearted!

  • Comment number 70.

    It also breaks my heart when I see Robbie looking so crestfallen when it comes to judging time. He's a sensitive soul, bless him.

    Hiya Teddyandgypsy @ 64- I'm not sure if Ola and Robbie actually realised they had anything to apologise for. Apart from messages on these blogs there hasn't really been a stirring about it within the greater viewing public as there? At least I haven't seen anything, but I admit I may be wrong.

    I think maybe that's why Robbie felt 'got at' because most of the very negative comments seemed to be directed straight at him, as though it was a personal failing of his (not being able to stop himself thrusting during a dance sequence), rather than the view that the dance was not suitable for family viewing.

    The BBC obviously didn't receive enough complaints from viewers to warrant an apology, either issued by themselves or by Ola and Robbie and if they had I think both Ola and Robbie would probably have felt real regret if the general consensus from the public was that the dance was distasteful.

    As it was I think Robbie probably felt he was the victim of a witch hunt, by a small but very vocal group of viewers.

    What do you think?

  • Comment number 71.

    It was flashed about in the tabloids re 3 or 4 hundred complaints and the BBC did make a statement.

    But it's past history and shouldn't be allowed to affect comments and votes on current and future dances by Savola!

    Good luck with the AS this week to Robbie and Ola and hoping that Robbie goes through to perform at Wembley for the third time in his career. (IIRC he's said that he played there twice in Wales/England matches).

  • Comment number 72.

    ah, thanks emj, maybe I should get lots more facts together before I comment next time.

  • Comment number 73.

    Though thinking about it, 3 or 4 hundred complaints out of lots of millions of viewers is still very much in the minority.

    I'm sure Robbie will do ok this week: he works hard, he's charming and he seems to have a lovely relationship with Ola, that will get him through a few more weeks I'm sure. His dancing is getting better too, so that might get him even further.

  • Comment number 74.

    A couple of comments from the various blogs about SCD (dunno whether Robbie and Ola read them)

    "Robbie & Ola: With those unruly locks tamed and a glisten of tears in those pretty blues, Robbie again proved his ballroom prowess. The choreography wasn’t overly ambitious but after last week’s thrustfest I think this can only be a good thing for him. Definitely graceful, but a bit too intense. No need for him to look so disappointed in himself, he did alright."

    "Robbie and Ola doing the Waltz. My score 9

    Loved it! He can do no wrong in my book. This was such a beautiful and classical routine. He looked the part and were waltzing around the floor like a true pro. "

  • Comment number 75.

    Pleased to hear how much Robbie has fallen in love with learning to dance - I agree with him that he probably won't make the final but think he will get to join the SCD tour at wembly and he will be thrilled to get that far he said. He has worked so hard and definitely deserves his success.

  • Comment number 76.

    American Smooth this week- I think that's going to suit him so well, Ola can keep him in hold quite a lot but play on his masculinity with the lifts. I'm really looking forward to this one. Does anyone know what music they're dancing to?

  • Comment number 77.

    I do hate all the stuff about minorities. Are people saying that unless more than half of the 7 million viewers complain, then that's alright then? The BBC would go under, for a start! Minorities do have a point of view and when it concerns something like taste on a family show, they deserve to be heard. Those of us who moaned are not saying 'never', we're just saying that simulated sex before the watershed on a show that says 'Good evening children' when it comes on air, is not appopriate. Surely all the people who love this sort of thing can watch it on loads and loads and loads of other channels?

  • Comment number 78.


    I agree with you that everyone should have their voice heard, absolutely. I just think the complaints about the dance that have been noted on this blog don't really seem to reflect the general public opinion. I'm not saying that makes the complaints less justified, but with Strictly being a 'democratic' voting show the emphasis is generally placed on the views of the majority.

    Personally I didn't enjoy the dance either, but I don't have children so I didn't really worry about it. I do think it's a shame that a lot of the negative comments were aimed at Robbie personally though, when really it was Ola's choreography that was the problem.

  • Comment number 79.

    Sorry to nag away on this one but I don't think the complaints were so much at Robbie in the beginning. But he handled it so badly - no grace, no humility, just 'they're getting at me' and spoilt child behaviour which caused the whole thing to hang around much longer than it needed to. Most of us liked Robbie at the beginning and admired his energy, but the spoilt little footballer act was a turn-off. With regard to the number of complaints, the people who will trouble to pick up the phone or send an email or a letter will always be relatively miniscule when you are talking big audience shows. But it shouldn't be assumed that because people don't complain that they like it. I think that is simply not true, which is why people who do comment are always just a sample. But they are usually representative. A similar example would be the comments on the blog about things like props and the VT's. Most people don't like the overuse of props since Moira Ross took over and I have yet to read a comment from anybody who loves the childish time-wasting VT's that have crept in this series. We are the people who care about the show and take the time and trouble to comment. We are therefore likely to be represenative. And on that subject, it has always baffled me that the BBC continue to cling to Aleesha Dixon who clearly is not universally liked. Look at the speed with which they ditched Jared Murillo.

  • Comment number 80.

    For goodness sake teddyandgypsy, enough already!! Its done, over! If you are that offended by them, use the OFF button!

  • Comment number 81.

    Ouch! No. I will not turn off a programme I love that bills itself as family entertainment because it turns into something else. I suggest that those people who want something more sexual select the channels that specialise it that sort of thing. The blogs this year have been really good humoured and there's a great atmosphere going amongs most of us. I don't tell anyone what to watch and I don't appreciate your telling me.

  • Comment number 82.

    Forgot to add that if Robbie is a 'sensitive soul' then I am a banana!

    Pass the fruit bowl.

  • Comment number 83.

    And just for the record i don't wish to watch more "sexual" channels and i don't appreciate the suggestion, just think the point about this particular dance has now been exhausted.

  • Comment number 84.

    No point in continuing a circular argument people - it's likely to result in trading insults.

    Just remember why Robbie's in Strictly (and i's not just to get to compete at Wembley again!)

  • Comment number 85.

    Well emj, I'll leave it to you to put the reasoned arguments in future which I have tried to with some humour do on these blogs, whilst always being careful to argue that everybody be free to enoy what pleases them. Insults - no, I don't do them. Like I don't tell people to turn off the television when they don't like part of the content of a programme which deviates from that which has been advertised. Bit like going to a Chinese and being served Indian. Well, it's been fun but now it's not.

  • Comment number 86.

    teddygypsy how can you say you dont tell me people to watch somrthing else. what about go watch loads and loads of other channels which i think you meant porn that's more insulting just cos people don't make a big thing about it doesnt mean we want to watch porn. it's not fun for us listening to you with your bee in your bonnet but we let you get on with it, you keep harping on cos somebody disagrees with you, so what, if its not fun when somebody disagrees with you then why do you keep pushing your argument all the time.

  • Comment number 87.

    Ooh, they've got a good song, I'm pleased. It's got that old time feel that suits the American Smooth. The only thing is, I can't think where the lifts would fit in with the music. Can't wait to see it.

  • Comment number 88.

    good song Deano version better tho

  • Comment number 89.

    Yeah, I must admit I would have preferred a more traditional arrangement too, but at least it's not a modern song, I never think they suit the American Smooth very well.
    But then again look at Artem's Swan Lake- who would have thought that would work so beautifully, and that was hardly traditional Broadway stylee (which is what I usually associate with the dance)!

  • Comment number 90.

    I've just had a look at Pussycat Dolls singing "Sway" (SCD 2009)


    and it's one of those songs which puzzle me as the melody is to one rhythm and the backing beat is to another - in this case a slow smooth melody and a cha cha beat backing.

    Will have to wait and see what Ola choreographs to this.

  • Comment number 91.

    Should make for an interesting dance shouldn't it? I think maybe it was chosen to show off the best of Robbie's talents, so we get a bit of the cheeky cha cha rhythm and then the more graceful part in the middle.
    And songs that change tempo a lot always seem to go down well don't they? Maybe it's because of all the opportunities for change of direction and steps.
    Listen to me talking like I know about this stuff! I think Ola will do fine if she reads this for ideas. :)

  • Comment number 92.

    Should be interesting indeed - we'll get to see a lift or two: I doubt that Ola weighs very much and Robbie does do weight training.

  • Comment number 93.

    On ITT on Monday they were talking about a lift where Ola is on his shoulder, upside down. But that's the thing with this song for me- I can't see how that sort of move would fit the music, I can't picture where it would come. It's a good thing I'm not a choreographer I suppose!
