I watched the first few series of SCD back in the day but haven't watched for years. But then this year I needed some lighthearted Saturday night tv so have been watching for the first time in about 10-12 years.

I'm really enjoying it and have been lurking on the threads on here too which are great. On those, there are loads of mentions of good dances from previous series that I've missed and, having watched a few, I'd really like to watch some more of the classics that I've missed.

So hit me with the best strictly dances from across all the series, would love to see some more of the good ones!

Karen and Mark with the Salsa!!! Adore this dance and the way Karen was so professional with the wardrobe malfunction

Ashley Roberts and her show dance and the Dirty Dancing one. I know she wasn't popular as had so much previous dance experience but she was a joy to watch.

Jay and Aliona doing Pulp Fiction in film week is my absolute favourite!

Oti and Danny Macs Samba! Was incredible :D

Mine is still Ed Balls doing Gangnam Style but I suspect I'm easily pleased.

Faye and Giovanni's Paso at Blackpool is one I always remember. I absolutely loved her on the show!

Also Jay and Aliona’s jive

I second Jay & Aliona's Pulp Fiction dance. Incredible, and more so for being totally unexpected.

Brendan and Lisa's showdance snigger

SantasYumnuts Sun 15-Nov-20 17:26:08

Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez jiving to Proud Mary. I never understood why people seemed to dislike her, I thought she was incredible to watch.

I still love Jill Halfpenny's Jive. Danny Mac's Samba was amazing and his American Smooth, I think, to Misty Blue.

SantasYumnuts Sun 15-Nov-20 17:31:23

Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton’s jive to Runaway Baby was amazing too.

TrashPanda Sun 15-Nov-20 17:33:34

Also Faye and Giovanni's couples choice was good because I don't think anyone expected it

This. It makes me smile every time, it was brilliant (and pretty good considering).

Jay and Aliona jive - still my favourite routine. Kelvin and Oti show dance also great.

EasilyDepleted Sun 15-Nov-20 17:37:07

Caroline Flack and Pasha's showdance

Susan Calman and Kevin - quickstep to Bring Me Sunshine

LaBodDelMed Sun 15-Nov-20 17:38:10

I’m seconding @SantasYumnuts.
Alexandra was stupendous in that.

And I’m seconding you again with Ore & Joanne too. I loved that dance too.

Actually come to think about it, I do love a jive!
As I was also going to say Jill Halfpenny’s jive was also fab, and of course as people have already mentioned Jay & Aliona’s.


Ballsdeep00 Sun 15-Nov-20 17:39:38

Oti and Danny's samba x

DigOutThoseLemonHandWipes Sun 15-Nov-20 17:40:16

Kara and Artem's Argentine tango

DramaAlpaca Sun 15-Nov-20 17:40:27

Jay & Aliona's jive
Tom & Camilla's show dance
Louis & Flavia's show dance
Faye & Gio's charleston
Caroline & Pasha's show dance

Just some of my favourites

doadeer Sun 15-Nov-20 17:42:20

Kara Tointon and Artem - their chemistry was unreal on Paso and Tango

I loved Jill Halfpenny Jive to I'm Still standing from years ago!

Plus LouisSmith show dance top less 😍

My fave ever was Faye and Giovannis Charleston
