We love a bit of Strictly Come Dancing at Lovett & Co. As well as looking forward to seeing how the celebrities will perform each week (Dave Myers is my favourite) we love looking at the amazing dresses, jewellery and the amazing dance routines they perform.
When Strictly graces our screens each season it does always make me want to learn to ballroom or jive.
Talking to a lovely elderly lady this week she said she has fond memories of dancing at The Regent Ballrooms in Brighton when she was a young girl. She said all of the girls would stand in a certain place waiting to be asked to dance and if they weren't that keen on the person they were dancing with, there was always a way to escape and come round the other side of the room! She said they were very happy times and many people met their future husbands/wives there. I would have loved to have seen what it was like.
I wonder whether this type of dancing and ballrooms will ever come back? Men dressed in suits and ladies in dresses that spin out? Keeping fingers crossed. x
