The day Strictly Come Dancing came to Scraptoft Community Hub!
It was a rainy day in Scraptoft when a bit of Strictly sparkle was sprinkled on Scraptoft Community Hub.
Tilly Ramsay and her dance partner Nikita Kumzin were looking for a venue in Leicester because they were here to see Hairspray at Curve Theatre. They found Scraptoft Community Hub through the LDG Dance Academy website and contacted Laura Del Grosso the Dance School owner. When Laura called me to say Strictly were coming I thought she was pulling my leg and then I thought somebody else was playing a practical joke on her and I was all ready to comfort her. But when the famous duo turned up it was such a nice surprise. They practised almost non stop for eight hours. Dancing the jive to a tune called 'The nicest kids in town' from the musical Hairspray. The couple did well in the contest (week 3) making us very proud!
