Charleston to 'Cantina Band' Last night's episode of Strictly Come Dancing, the UK version of Dancing With Stars was a Hollywood special which included this two minutes of joy in which Kellie Bright & Kevin Clifton danced the charleston dressed at Luke and Leia. With lightsabers. Other films included Pulp Fiction, Pretty Woman and Ghost. [alt link for Star Wars dance]

Every time I think I've stopped laughing at Gleb's 'rampant crab' move in the Ghost-themed American Smooth, I realise I haven't.

(YouTube video doesn't show the judges' commentary but that's what Len called it.)

The video didn't work ("not available in your country") but this one did.

They even did it with enough continuity, physics and logic errors that it could actually have been a George Lucas production!

That was great- but as someone who hasn't watched the show before, wow, what a distracting background for them to dance in front of. I would love to see this danced again front of almost any other backdrop!

(The video links also don't work for me, in the US- but eye of newt's link worked.)

Calling shenanigans.

Leia never had a saber. Also, hands burned off.

(Actually, it was pretty cute.)

Well, if we're being proper about things; 'Dancing With The Stars' is the spin-off of the BBC show for regions where the equivoque 'Strictly Come Dancing' doesn't make any sense.

that was thoroughly enjoyable! -1 point because Leia hit her saber too hard towards the end and turned the light off.

Not that I mind this sort of thing, but this has got "Star Wars Blue" all over it.
