Week One: Cha Cha Cha

Tonight, after an amazing opening professional routine (to my favourite song!!), Aliona and Jay performed a cheeky Cha Cha Cha to Reach Out, I’ll Be There by Human Nature and currently sit in joint 3rd place on the leaderboard.



Craig: I also like the way you can isolate your body, you did a lovely body roll there, it was all very neat and very tidy. The only thing I would say to add something to that is showmanship. I just felt that you were’t really living the experience I felt like you were just dancing the steps. 5
Darcey: Your posture, your stance, you gave strength and direct, you were leading her, she wasn’t in control you were in control of the dance. It was brilliant. 8
Len: Jay McGuiness, you’re like a glass of Guiness: full-bodied and you got a lot of froth on top! Don’t you go anywhere, you’re wanted. 7
Bruno: Oh Jay! I’m glad you came! I’m telling you, you have the potential to be a great hit on the dance floor. 7

TOTAL = 27/40
