Wow! What a final last night.
Whilst we felt really disappointed for AJ and Kai who missed out after so much hard work, and we would have loved to have seen what they could have brought to the final! The two couples still in the running more than made up for a special and entertaining night of dancing!
The quality of the six dances they performed between them was exceptional, reflected in a joint score for them both of 119/120!
Both couples provided some fantastic performances, entertaining but also with a display of technical proficiency built up over the weeks! On ability it was almost impossible to split them and either couple would have been a worthy winner of the trophy.
In the end it was Rose who was crowned winner and for our team she was also our choice. Simply because of the hard work, grit and determination she has shown each week to perform to an exceptional level and the beautiful authentic dancing she has produced as a result!!
However at RISE we all feel last night the real winner was diversity and inclusion within dancing. To see not only a same sex couple but also the demonstration that a disability does not need to hold anyone back within dancing was really special.
Here at RISE we have always believed that “every-body dances” and have a mission to promote inclusivity and accessibility in dance, so we were thrilled to see this last night.
We have enjoyed catching up with you all every week with our thoughts and reviews of the show, we hope you have enjoyed it too! Let us know your thoughts on last nights final below….and….
