Legs Eleven Strictly Come Dancing Week 1

What did we think?

Legs Eleven online slots site love anything dance-related and Strictly Come Dancing hits the spot entirely. This week’s episode started off fantastrictly and we really can’t wait to see how the series unfolds. Whilst there were no live performances from the contestants, there was plenty of entertainment which had us grasped from the off! Kylie Minogue absolutely owned the stage and at 51 she is showing no sign of slowing down with her charisma and charm as thrilling as ever. The professional dancers, with their two main performances on this episode, showed us once again why they are the best in the business and have set our expectations high for some of the performances this series! Last but not least, the colour scheme and choreography throughout the show was spectacular beyond belief and shows that dancing is not just about the moves and grooves but about the settings and surroundings also!

Legs Eleven Strictly Come Dancing Week 1

What can we expect?

Well, that is pretty much all you need to know about Strictly Come Dancing 2019 thus far! As discussed on the show, there are such a range of ages, abilities and backgrounds so we really are in for a fascinating series with so much to look forward to. We were treated to last year’s winning pair of Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton coming back to strut their stuff and remind us once again why they stole our hearts and won our votes last year with another amazing performance. At the end of the show we were also treated to a snippet of what we can expect from our dancers with a well choreographed group performance consisting of both contestants and professional dancers alike. This was accompanied by ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’ by Lionel Richie which is a pretty accurate reflection as to how this show makes us at Legs Eleven feel when we’re watching Strictly Come Dancing.

Farewell for now!

That's it for this week’s round up of Strictly Come Dancing 2019 thus far. Be sure to visit us next week for another round up of next week’s episode as we look forward to the live performances which, based on this week’s snippets, are sure to be amazing!
