Will it be Love at First Dance?
In the 1950s nearly three quarters of relationships started on a dance floor and now brand new dating format, Flirty Dancing, brings back the old fashioned romance of meeting someone face to face and dancing cheek to cheek as an antidote to modern dating, with one single dance.
Each couple start as complete strangers and, over the course of a week, they each learn a specially choreographed dance routine separately, so the first time they ever meet is when they dance together. Neither a word spoken, nor names exchanged just the music and the movement to guide them through an intense and physical first date like no other.
Choreographed by a leading dancer/choreographer, the dances look and feel like Hollywood rom-com moments. The Singles bump into each other in stunning locations; the bandstand in a park, at a train station or a prestigious art gallery. As the real world melts away around them they start to dance, and when the routine is complete, they split apart, only then deciding if the dance created enough of a spark for them to want to meet again.
