For this year’s Strictly Tanglewood dancing event, we combined it with Halloween – it was an inspired decision by the organisers Christina & Jackie – we all had a fab-u-lous evening.
This was our 8th “Strictly” evening and it is still as popular as ever. Our four judges included two professional dancers, Malcolm & Carolyn, who had only that very morning, arrived in Liverpool after working on a cruise ship in the med., After getting a train back to London, they still found time to come to our event. We are truly grateful for that. They joined Vicky and John on the judges table – However, new for this year was an “audience vote” Four neutral people were selected from the audience and after all the couples had danced, the audience vote was added to the judges scores to give us an overall winner.
The final leader board looked like this:-
|1st||Annie & Chirag||38||36||74|
|2nd||Emma & Syed||34||32||66|
|3rd||Natalie & Kevin||33||29||62|
|4th||Debbie & Noel||32||29||61|
|5th||Kavitha & Paul||29||30||59|
|6th||Alice & Darshan||29||26||55|
|7th||Karen & Michael||27||27||54|
Both the judges’ and the audience top marks went to Annie, who only joined Tanglewood in January of this year, and Chirag who wins the title for the second consecutive year – They are pictured receiving their certificates and “Glitter-ball” trophies from Carolyn & Malcolm – our visiting professional dancers.
