The Aftermath

What a night! Though looking back on it it seemed to go so quickly. I can barely remember anything about our Tango now actually- such a rush! While choreographing and practicing alone 1min 30 never felt like such a long time- but now it seems we were out on the floor for only a moment. 2 6's wasn't what we were aiming for, and it was a bit disappointing after we'd ran through it perfectly beforehand, but it was just down to the nerves on the night. Thankfully, our joint 9th judges score was helped by the audience putting us 5th to make an overall 8th. What i'll take away from the event is the amount of fun and professionalism of the production. I can't praise Matt enough.
Also on the praise list for me are the top 3 couples. Sam&Kate, Henry&Harriet and Tom&Rosie: your dances were amazing- congratulations! Everyone worked so hard for this, and no-one deserves to feel disappointed with their placing.
...is it too early to ask questions about next year?

All Over...

...and I'm genuinely sad.

It's been a fantastic experience, the result didn't go my way in the end (even nearly!) but I think the routine went well and evereyone was amazing.

Really happy for Tom to have won, he totally deserved to.

Just to reiterate a few thankyous to everyone who took part, took time out and put so much effort in, the contestants and those behind the scenes.

I'm really happy with how the event went and hopefully we'll be able to do it again in the future.

Thanks for everyone who supported me, came to watch, wished me good luck it means a lot.

Until next time...
