Video shows sneak preview of how Dancing Strictly competitors are shaping up
With just over one week to go until the Dancing Strictly grand final, competitors are busy putting the finishing touches to their dazzling routines.
Dressed head-to-toe in sequins 12 couples will strut their stuff on the dance floor in front of a panel of judges at Millfield Theatre on Saturday February 9.
Each pair will take it in turn to show off their routines ranging from a sexy salsa to a fast-moving cha cha cha – while hoping to raise thousands of pounds for North London Hospice.
At the end of the evening one couple will be crowned the king and queen of ballroom dancing.
For weeks the contestants have been put through their paces by professional dance instructors who are determined they get it right on the night.
To get a sneak preview of how their shaping up watch dance instructor Mina Queen of Salsa teaching them some moves in the video clip above.
