Our wedding dance instructor, Tamin Coningham, was asked to a Kizomba lesson on the Swedish version of The Bachelor. We asked her what her experience was like, and this is what she had to say about it.
Q: Did you ever follow The Bachelor?
A: Not the South African version specifically but I did follow a few episodes of the London version.
Q: How does it compare to the Swedish version?
A: Not much is different, but on this season they have two bachelors.
Q: Did everyone speak English?
A: Yes, fluently with a slight Swedish accent.
Q: What was the bachelor like?
A: His name is Simon, and he is a big ladies charmer. He loved to entertain and charm the ladies.
Q: You had two lady contestants with you, do you think either were a match for Simon?
A: It’s a tough one, as I only met them once. He had chemistry with both of them, but they were both so different.
Q: What was the location like?
A: They had booked out a game reserve near Pongola, it was beautiful! The venue was just stunning.
Q: Did they do your hair and make up?
A: No, I arrived with my own hair and make up done.
Q: What does it take to film an episode of The Bachelor; were there a lot of people on set?
A: There were quite a few people, they even have a new editor for every episode. The Warner Brother’s camera crew was actually filming the episode where I was teaching the lesson.
Q: What classes do you offer at Sugar Dance?
A: Mostly private lesson for weddings or parties, but I also offer a class called Salsa Singles - I don’t just teach salsa in this class, we teach all sorts of different styles. This week I even taught the ladies a line dance.
Q: What are your costs on your classes?
A: Private sessions are R400 and it is R80 per class for Salsa Singles.
Put your dancing shoes on and come try a class :)
