The Owl Dances Because of This Show!
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I miss this show now! Why? This is what got me started on a quest to conquer my shyness and what motivated me to take ballroom dancing lessons in the mid-80's! I still dance now (swing, hustle, salsa & Latin), and to think I have this TV show to thank for that! Favorite moments include:

1) A couple who did this hilarious comedy ballroom routine (shoes flying off and other mishaps).

2) A couple who did this Arabian/Middle Eastern routine with REAL scimitars (large curved swords), before which, good 'ol Denny grimly intones, "DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!" (LOL)

3) The couples who did Hustle were always fun and sexy (with the Wonder-Woman pull-away skirt twirl deal)

4) Great dancing all around! Good fun and a great guilty pleasure for this Owl!
