sorry but have to say this HOW is Tameka being allowed to do a paso when the others are doing one of the four standard start dances also note she is getting decent music - yet again BBC staff getting favoured

Lesley Joseph, (and Anton) were on Loose Women today, so thought it would have something to do with the show - Birds.
They (Linda mostly ) were asking for her to do a dance to 'Like a virgin'- clip shown from an early Birds episode, they kept asking Anton, what dance could you do to it, he wouldn't commit an answer??
Are they going (Lesley and Anton) on Friday's show??? kept emphasizing Friday I think .

Very unusual to have just one Paso...
but I think it might be a disadvantage for Tameka.

A dance like the Paso is a good one to have in the
later stages for maximum impact.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

yes I would have thought it went against them, that dance better when the dances had more confidence and practice.

paso is a dance that can be done at any level really and you can get away without doing much technique and walk and pose and has a lot of impact because of music and costume etc that coupled with authentic music will help

We will see on the night

both tango tracks concern me somewhat

If they were going to use a Paso as week one dance you'd think they would have given it one or two other celebs. Since there's so many chachas, a Paso on its own looks odd. Not great choices for music either
