Strictly Come Dancing.

Not a fan of this show but had to smile to myself at the news that it will now feature same-sex dance partners as I well recall as perhaps others here do the most glorious June Grenfall (1910-1979) singing Stately as a Galleon  

So gay the band, so giddy the sight, full evening dress is a must.
But the zest goes out of a beautiful waltz
When you dance it bust to bust.

So no change there then - "for a lady is never a gentleman, though she may be your bosom friend."

Luckily, in these more enlightened times, not everyone is so keen to be so restrictive in their attitudes to gender and mutually supportive relationships.

Fortunately in these 'enlightened times' we have the option not to watch this sort of programme. All we want now is more enlightment in the form of not having to pay the beeb for their enlightenment lessons.

As has been explained many times in this forum, you do not have to buy a TV licence. If you don’t want to fund the BBC, simply don’t buy one. Then, if you wish to stay on the right side of the law, simply don’t watch live tv as it is broadcast, don’t record live tv as it is broadcast, and don’t watch anything on BBC iPlayer.

Re: Strictly Come Dancing.

I`ve not been a fan of SCD either...  could never see the point of it... there are, or were, many good "professional" dancers, of various forms of dancing, that could put on a display, with all the grace and beauty of their particular dance genre...

as for same sex couples dancing... it`s been going on for years in the clubs... and used to be a sure fire way to pick your next girlfriend, when you and your mate, smoothly walked up to the girls. and "cut in"...  with a "classic"  chat up line....  " are you dancing  ? ? ? ?  "   Cool

Re: Strictly Come Dancing.

Strange though @shutter how women do not have any inhibitions about dancing with each other yet men do - at least out in the 'normal world' (if I may use that phrase) and away from the club scene.

I'm not advocating it, it's just a point to ponder as they say.

There is certainly a cultural and religious aspect to it as men dance together under other circumstances.

Seen as some sort of mating ritual maybe, or just a Western paradigm?

Re: Strictly Come Dancing.

Yeah... women/ladies/girls of the feminine kind... do not see it as "weird" or "wrong"... neither do I, as a matter of fact. ! ! ! ...

Never been a dancer of any kind though... two left feet and oversize wellies, does not contribute to excellence in the art of terpsichore  CheesyCheesyCheesy

Morris dancing is almost exclusively male, but then, it's a very different thing to ballroom.
