BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing has finally launched and we at Fizzbox couldn’t be happier. The dancing, the drama, the divas, the costumes, the judges’ comments, who can resist the magic of Strictly! Every year millions of us are hooked, tuning in every week to watch the contestants strut their stuff. To coincide with one of the biggest TV events of the year, we’ve launched our Strictly Come Dancing workshop. Have you ever watched the celebrities and thought “I’d love to do that?” Well, now’s your chance!
Lights, camera, action! You’ve seen the hit TV show, now it’s your turn to try out the moves for yourself. If you and the girls love Strictly, it’s time for you to learn how to glide around the dancefloor like Ginger Rogers! Unlike the celebs, you don’t have to perform in front of the whole nation. You’ll get a private venue where you can all let your hair down away from prying eyes. Available in a range of top UK cities, your 90-minute Strictly Come Dancing class will be led by a professional dance tutor who’ll break the ice with a lively warm up.
You’ll then learn at least two classic ballroom and Latin dances, taught step by step as well as focusing on posture, footwork and rhythm. The moves will be incorporated into a dazzling choreographed routine which you’ll perform at the end. Some of you can even volunteer to be the judges. Fancy your chances at scoring 10s across the board? Until you wangle your way to superstardom, this is the closest you’ll get to Strictly Come Dancing so make the most of it. This workshop is, in the words of judge Craig Revel-Horwood, fab-u-lous!
No Previous Experience Necessary
The choreographed routine will be broken down into easy to learn steps so that everyone can keep up, making this dance class suitable for all abilities and fitness levels. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced dancer or have two left feet, you’ll soon be channelling your inner Latin lady and ballroom belle!
Whether you think you could pull off something amazing like Jay McGuinness’ jive or make everyone laugh a la Anne Widdecombe’s samba, you’ll all have a blast! The focus of the Strictly Come Dancing workshop is always on fun and you’ll get loads of encouragement from everyone around you. There’s no better way to get yourselves dancefloor ready for a big night out. You could even perform your group dance routine at an upcoming wedding.
What Should I Wear?
The general dress code is comfy clothes with a bit of stretch that you can easily move around in. However, we highly recommend getting stuck into the glitz and glamour of Strictly by coming in floaty, knee-length skirts and dresses with small heels or ballet pumps. Don’t forget a hefty dose of sparkle, sequins or feathers. You want to look red carpet worthy as you twirl around your ballroom! Plus, you’ll get some totally gorgeous group photos.

There’s more themes than you can shake a stick at!
Don those leg warmers, scrunchies and neon colours as you learn how to get Footloose and Flashdance! You’ll master some seriously iconic 80s moves from the running man to the moonwalk to a soundtrack of the best hits from the decade we can’t help but love and singalong too.

If you’ve seen the hit TV show, you’ll know the drill! Your group will be split into two teams to learn a choreographed routine to a song of your choice. Each group will perform their routine at the end in epic fashion, dancing and miming like true popstars with the dance teacher picking a winner.
