Happy Halloween!

Halloween Strictly Come Dancing

One step, two step πŸŽƒ halloween monsters assemble,
Stretch, shuffle, begin,
Cha cha, quick step, disco, rude dancing,
Welcome! WickedπŸ§™β€β™€οΈ witches, 😈 demons, πŸ§›β€β™€οΈ vampires, and ghostly divas.
Cheer! To the discordant music of the long since and recent dead.
Meet our amazing judges.
From the wild side, Lou Reed,
For his renowned eccentricity, David Bowie,
Offering gentle criticism, and celebratory wishes, Prince.
For a grungy peace, love, and empathy vibe, Kurt Cobain,
What talented judges! Hip hoorah!
So, play nice, no cheating,
Rules… Dancers listen carefully!
Witches wands are strictly forbidden,
Ghosts, no fading in and out,
Demons keep to the dark side,
Vampires don’t eat before the competition!
Judges decisions are final,
The winning dance will be…
Written in the unholiest blood!

Hope you have a fun Halloween.
