Week 9: In Training

BBC Strictly James

Online Team

We are less than one month away from Strictly final – how time flies when you’re dancing the Jive. Still, we’ve got a lot more to come before someone raises the glitterball trophy – next week sees the remaining couples dance TWO dances in one night, and the week after that is the semi-final. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Thursday is Training Day here on the blog, so have a look at our couples in action to see how they’re getting on – will Michael continue to improve on his Latin scores? Will Nicky stay at the top with Dani, Denise and Kimberley? Will Louis regain his previous form? And will Lisa ever pick Robin up again?

Here are the dance styles and musical choices for this week.

Dani & Vincent – Viennese Waltz to ‘That’s Amore’ by Dean Martin

Denise & James – Salsa to ‘Rhythm Of The Night’ by Valeria

Kimberley & Pasha – Jive to ‘Land Of 1000 Dances’ by Wilson Pickett

Lisa & Robin – Quickstep to ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ by Jive Aces

Louis & Flavia – Charleston to 'Dr Wanna Do' by Caro Emerald

Michael & Natalie – Samba to ‘Tequila’ by The Champs

Nicky & Karen – Argentine Tango to ‘Skyfall’ by Adele  

Strictly is on this Saturday, 6.50pm, BBC One.
