Beind the scenes at Strictly Ballroom The Musical
There are two things you notice about the costumes for Strictly Ballroom The Musical. Firstly there are sequins. Lots of them. Secondly those with negative body issues should probably not audition for a role. Skimpy, quite literally, doesn’t cover it. Not even close. The show, which sees maverick dancer Scott Hastings take on the traditionalists as he sets out to win the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix Dancing Championship, is based on Baz Luhrmann’s 1992 film of the same name. A few years ago the director decided to revisit the rom com which gave him his break on the big screen and take it back to the stage.
