Strictly Ballroom

This is another film with a message about following your dreams! It is all a shameless satire of the extraordinary world of ballroom dancing. A young and talented ballroom dancer longs to dance “his own steps” – which is against the rules. So, in the run up to the Pan Pacific Championships, his flashy partner ditches him and his mother has screaming fits. He does get support from Fran, but she is only a beginner – and the opposite of flashy. These two misfits set out to compete – spectacularly helped by her Spanish peasant father.

The film is full of vibrant energy, dazzling colours – and a sense of madness. The dancing is thrilling to watch, even if you are not into dancing. It has an unforced charm, played with an ironic wink. A bit corny, but it is truly good fun and great entertainment. What more could you want?

You can either book here on the Sheepscombe web site or just turn up on Tuesday. The usual donation applies; masks are still requested and we will seat you gently socially distanced!
