I have thoroughly enjoyed this series of Strictly Come Dancing. When it began i thought nothing could top Artem and Kara winning and falling in love on last years, but it turned out, thanks to a certain boy named Harry, not to be the case. I have enjoyed Harry and Aliona's journey just as much, and with fierce competiotion from actress Chelsee and performer Jason, it was a tight race to the finish last night.
Harry and Aliona won the Glitter Ball trophy, after performing 4 dances. The quick step, a show dance, the American smooth (my absolute favourite dance of theirs) and ending strongly with the Argentine tango. Harry for me has certainly been the best male celebrity the show has ever seen. From drummer in a boy(all be it now a man)band, to leading Aliona round the dance floor with such accomplishment and passion.
I have so enjoyed each and everyone of their dances, both latin and ballroom, as a couple they excelled in each. I have included pictures in this post from throughout the series. Aliona's experience coming second last year with Matt Baker, certainly must have helped her in handling the pressure of choreography to such a high standard. She is amazing both as a dancer and teacher, one of the best! and i was so happy she got to win this year - they each worked so hard and it was so much deserved.
(many thanks for the messages left on my previous post, it has been overwhelming, comforting and inspiring to hear from you and i appreciate it so very much, i have replied to each of you there in the comments xxx)
