Strictly Come Swazi Fun

If there are not enough boys, the girls dance with each other. And they look as though they having fun.

The boy is enjoying himself, but she has adopted that snooty, nose-in-the-air expression to give the air of sophistication.

Pity this isn't in focus, but this lad is obviously having so much fun he's poking his tongue out.

I am not a demon-on-the-dancefloor. I shuffle about like a grandfather (without cardigan or slippers I might add) when dancing at wedding celebrations. My mother tried to encourage me to learn ballroom dancing, saying how wonderful it would feel to be gliding around the dancefloor with a pretty girl in my arms. But I must have bisinisterpody (a neologism meaning two left feet). I haven’t watched Strictly on TV in UK, because it didn’t interest me. However, last Saturday, I could see what all the fuss was about. It looked like a marvellous spectacle. And I am tempted to try it out with a willing partner who can dance in protective footwear. Paola Uribe, the lab specialist, on the other hand, attends dancing classes four days a week after work. She is even a qualified Aqua-Zumba instructor. Maybe there is hope for me yet.

  1. Photos of you throwing shapes on the dance floor? Facebook and possibly the Internet may crash with the demand! Move over Dr Dre, the REAL doctors in the house!
