After checking with his doctor he really didn't have a choice.

On the other hand he was definitely dancing. In an earlier life he'd have made a good gigolo.

He was the sort of person you look at and think nope, he's going to be useless at this! Then he actually danced, brilliant.

What I remember from living a mile south of the Arsenal ground is that people used to go round shouting "There's only one Tony Adams" whenever his team played a home fixture. He scored a couple of goals a year.

Being a person with at least three left feet, I am amazed at the abilities of many of these folks.

This type of dances never stop to impress me, once in a while I'd watch 1 or 2 and I'd be flabbergasted and then be sad that it isn't appreciated enough sometimes..

For non-dancers, many of whom are relatively unfit, I find it amazing how quickly some of them reach a high standard in their dancing.
