    Strictly Come Dancing - The Week One Review

    Strictly Come Dancing - The Week One Review

    Strictly Come Dancing danced its way back onto screens this week with the first real live show! In this week's episode, Joanne Clifton takes the reins along with the community to take an in-depth look at the dances, the dazzle and the drama of Week One!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The pleasure of Strictly Come Dancing is not just found in the costumes, the glitter, and the fabulous dances, but also in the journey taken by the competitors as they develop, grow and learn from each other.
    Expectations are all very well when it comes to the celebrity competitors, but often our assumptions are upended when they take to the floor.
    Facial expressions are very important when it comes to communicating a feeling during a dance, but they always work better when they come from the movie itself.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'The first few dances in those early weeks always get really under-marked!' - 8:00

    'I'm going to be controversial. I think he'll go all the way to the final...' - 24:40

    'Her comments... it was almost like she was telling him off!' - 1:03:53

    Strictly Launch Show Special!

    Strictly Launch Show Special!

    Strictly Come Dancing 2021 has officially launched! In the past week, we've met the professionals, the celebrities, and watched as they teamed up in their respective pairs, ready to take on the dances and each other on the leaderboards.

    in this episode, Kevin and Joanne Clifton are joined once more by the community to discuss the launch show, and give their verdicts on the razzle-dazzle so far.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    When the line-up is revealed, there are generally one or two hopefuls who perhaps have a little more in the way of prior training. This doesn't necessarily mean that they have an advantage.
    There are many ways of "thawing out" a celebrity hopeful for the competition. Some professionals choose to do this through hard work, others use fun in order to relax their partners.
    We instantly form emotional connections to the partnerships, from the instant they are created. These attachments are made all the more poignant by the fact that we realise from the get-go that couples will be leaving soon.
    Social media can be a positive thing, but it can also drag us down in many ways. We can either choose to ignore it, or take a break, if we feel that its effects are becoming detrimental.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'We are sailing! This ship is sailing!' - 00:36

    'I've got something to tell you! You do not rule out Katya Jones, that's for sure!' - 18:23

    'I'm already feeling so sad that someone has to be booted out' - 25:55

    'It's easy to give advice. It's not so easy to implement it' - 50:40

    Strictly: Competition or Entertainment?

    Strictly: Competition or Entertainment?

    This week, Kevin and Joanne are joined by their Patreon community for a conversation seeking to answer a questions that's long burned bright in the Strictly Come Dancing community - it is a serious dance competition, or an entertainment show?

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    There is a pleasure to be found in knowing ahead of time when surprises on tv shows are to take place. But programmes are designed for drama, also, and should be experienced as such when possible.
    Theatre is back, and the world is so excited. The artform has to grow all over again, but with the will of fans and performers behind it, theatre can be rescued and can come back brighter than ever.
    Very often, we put far too much emphasis and importance upon powering through a challenge, when in reality, it's far better for everyone if you take time out to reflect and recover.
    The foundation of Strictly Come Dancing is that it appears to be a competition, but the ultimate judges are the public who vote.

    BEST MOMENTS 

    'I want to watch the launch show and be excited about what's happening' - 2:14

    'Every time I raised the microphone to my mouth, the crowd started screaming louder' - 3:54

    'What brings the professionals together - a competition within themselves' - 16:31

    'It's entertainment, but I still like looking at it with a more technical eye' - 22:38

    Potential Partners and Burn The Floor: A Special Community Conversation

    Potential Partners and Burn The Floor: A Special Community Conversation

    This week, join Kevin and Joanne Clifton once more for a very special live round table discussion with the Patreon community members, about all things Strictly - including early predictions about potential partnerships, and the incredibly exciting reunion news about 'Burn The Floor'!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Professionals in theatre and performance recognise the importance of training and work, but also the importance of resting between performances - a recharging process essential to the repair of our bodies.
    Dance and performance have the power to reactivate passions and talents. Kevin was almost close to leaving the world of dance until 'Burn The Floor' reignited his love for the art form.
    Height plays a huge part in determining the partnerships that could take place between celebrities and professionals.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'That's my really exciting voice rest chat' - 4:32

    'I fell in love with dance all over again when I joined Burn The Floor' - 13:09

    'We're 13 days away from Strictly!' - 32:02

    Patreon Call: Meet The Community

    Patreon Call: Meet The Community

    In a very special edition of The Kevin Clifton Show, Kevin and Joanne are joined by their brand new Patreon community members, for an inaugural discussion about what's coming up on the series. It's a wonderful way to hold real, meaningful discussions about the show we all love, in real time!

    Join Kevin, Joanne, and their very special guests for what promises to be one of the most insightful dance talk forums out there...

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    While Kevin and his guests have incredible insights into Strictly Come Dancing and the way it works, some of the best perspectives come from the audience. This is their chance to have their say!
    Opinions may vary as time goes on, but the important thing is to keep an open mind and the conversation moving along.
    There are two types of celebrities on Strictly - those who are willing to learn and go with it, and those who seem to worry far too much about how they look each week.
    There are many reasons for voting for a couple on the show, which don't always correspond to whether or not we like the dancing or not. Sometimes it's about emotional connection.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'I'm no longer Kevin Clifton's sister - I am Kevin Clifton's secretary!' - 00:40

    'You're looking at potential - you're looking for people with the ability to improve' - 14:39

    'A lot of the guys come in at the beginning of Strictly, saying "I'm not wearing sparkles!"' - 22:25

    'There are so many different reasons you vote for' - 37:10
