to be honest not overly impressed with some of the music or dance choices - you can see by those choices how the BBC are playing faves already :)

Some of those I don't know and will have to look them up when I get home.

Of the ones that I do know, the Foxtrots and Jives will be is fine, (although I really HATE Rockin Robin). But FT and Jive as first dances? Harsh!

I can imagine Temptation as a Tango if given the right treatment. But the Rev's Cha Cha music is a poor choice indeed.
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

having seen Susan and Kevs training video - she looks far better than I thought and music ok was used for Phil Tuffnell a few years ago, though Katya's routine dreadful

Oh my word - I've just listened to Be Italian. I love the song, but how on earth do you dance a Paso to it!!

Thess I can see it being really cringey especially if they do it burlesque style
