From Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance to Psy’s Gangnam Style remixes, dancers from as young as seven to those as old as 60 years took part in the first It’s Strictly Ballroom competition held Saturday at St Leonard’s Boys’ School.

The categories from Juvenile Beginners to Youth Advanced to the Master’s Beginners had over 67 couples from eight dance clubs across Barbados competing.

The Adult 10 dance was the showdown piece, with Mark Burgess and Madonna Gollop going up against Romario Bates and Tiffany Lynch, who performed ten dances in first and second half.

Bates and Lynch put down a powerful performance to take nine first places and a second to waltz off with the trophy over the experienced Burgess and Gollop, who received nine seconds and a first.

Here, Bates and Lynch in the second half of the Latin routine in which they did the samba, cha-cha, rumba, paso doble and jive. (NS)
