Dance on Twitter

Posted on October 25, 2010

twitpicIt’s been a busy dance week, with hard work and celebrations both being reported on Twitter.


The “Strictly” professionals have started teasing upcoming treats:

@AlionaVilani: Finished with pro rehearsal and now off to Camberley to dance with @bakermattbaker… sexy vamps are back 🙂 !!!

@artemchigvintse: I know every body asking what dance we doing this week I am not sure if I am aloud but I promise you it’s very exciting one of my favourites 😉


Meanwhile, audiences have been pining for Arlene Phillips:

@arlenephillips: My twitter has been working overtime so bless you and thank you for so many amazing tweets on missing my sharp judging tongue


“Strictly” stars were out at other ballroom events, too:

@erinboag: I had a lovely night last night at the Royal Albert Hall for the International Dance Championships. Great to see everyone. x

Aliona Vilani, Matt Baker, Matthew Cutler, Craig Revel Horwood and Ola Jordan were also at the Royal Albert Hall, watching friends competing and having a good time.


They’re feeling the cold at Scottish Ballet, with one of the shortest tweets:

@scottishballet: Brrrr.


Wayne McGregor is at work on his new dance FAR, for Random Dance | Wayne McGregor, opening at Sadler’s Wells on November 17. Some of it sounds painful:

@WayneMcGregor: Our youngest dancer, Louis McMiller, fresh from the #Royal Ballet School, is suffering from “McGregor Neck”!!!


Finally, some of our 100th birthday party guests have been tweeting.

@LondonBallerina: 100 years DANCING TIMES party AMAZING! The Lowry exhibition AMAZING! Chroma AMAZING! Rehearse for Sylvia today, perform La Valse tonight.

@Rambertdance: @MarkPBaldwin admiring the amazing #cake at the Dancing Times 100th birthday party last night. Happy birthday @dancingtimes
