    EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION STRICTLY 'QUOTE' DANCING A COMICAL COLLECTION OF 1500 TONGUE-IN-CHEEK-TO-CHEEK DANCE QUOTATIONS from Strictly Come Dancing to Footloose from Daddy Cool to Hot Gossip from the Moulin Rouge to The Red Shoes from Arlene Phillips to Fiona Phillips from Stomp The Yard to the Soft-Shoe Shuffle from Nijinsky to They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? "Common sense and a sense of humour are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humour is just common sense dancing." William James Inspired by the hit BBC TV show Strictly Come Dancing, this book delivers enough comical content to fill the most discerning judge's dance card. "People love to follow celebrities and watch them being humiliated. In the past we had the stocks; now we have Strictly..." Craig Revel Horwood in The Daily Mail (2008) This light-footed volume of 1500 light-hearted quotes covers every angle of the dance world from the Len GOODman, the LamBADa and the JitterbUGLY. As the title... More > suggests - this fun-packed book focuses on the first 7 seasons of Strictly Come Dancing ... On why he agreed to take part in Strictly - "It was the prospect of dancing with a woman for a change." Julian Clary (2004) It reveals an amusing aspect of the show through the words of celebrity and professional dancers, judges, hosts, fans and the media. "When Strictly... first quick-stepped onto our screens, it was as fresh and innocent as a newly-sewn sequin on a novice's ballgown." Amanda Platell in The Daily Mail (2009) "Strictly... is a proper, serious, intelligent sport. Unlike football, which is just some petty form of light entertainment." Viv Groskop in The Mail on Sunday (2009) "That's pro-celebrity Ballroom for you. It damn near strips a man naked, bar the sequins." Giles Smith in The Times (2006) "When it comes to the Strictly... debate, I'm on John Sergeant's side. We who Salsa like reversing dump-trucks have to stick together." Rowan Pelling in The Daily Telegraph (2008) As well SCD other TV dance shows (from Come Dancing to S.Y.T.Y.C.D.) are also well covered... "These days you can't swing a sequined dress without hitting a dance reality TV show." Emily Macel in Dance magazine (2008) "It goes without saying S.Y.T.Y.C.D. should have been called So You Think You Can Be Any More Like X Factor And Britain's Got Talent If You Try?" Ian Hyland in The News of the World (2010) This book includes comical content about famous dancers ... "Patrick Swayze is a watchable bundle of tempting testosterone." Katharine Dieckmann in The Village Voice (1987) "In Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta jay-walked across the disco floor with the hormonal dazzle of a porno polyester peacock." Owen Gleiberman in Entertainment Weekly (2000) As such, Strictly 'Quote' Dancing celebrates in frivolous fashion the gaudy global glitterball of glamour, glitz and garish gaucheness that has always pervaded the dance world. "Dancing is beautiful and sexy, unless it's at an open-bar wedding reception." Ross Werland "Stifling an urge to dance is bad for your health - it rusts your spirit and your hips." Adabella Radici "You know what they say about revenge: Best taken in a frilly frock." Anton Du Beke "Theoretically, I am ready to go to anything - once. If it moves, I'm interested; if it moves to music, I'm in love." Arlene Croce in The New Yorker (2000) "Mixing Ballet and Breakdance is like mixing apples and space-ships." Touré in USA Today (2001) "Tap dance has that contradictory posture: Buster Keaton from the waist up, Jim Carrey from the waist down." Richard Corliss in Time magazine (2002) "There will be a rain dance Friday night ... weather permitting." George Carlin For more on this book, please go to: Colin M Jarman [Editor] To view the US equivalent of the Strictly 'Quote' Dancing book - DANCING WITH THE QUOTES that focuses on the Dancing With The Stars TV show - please go to:< Less
