Anton du Beke may be the (self-styled) King of Ballroom, but it was Karim Zeroual who took the crown in this week’s Foxtrot battle royale. Good footwork on the basics – leading with the heel, then toe, toe on the slow, quick, quick – meant a nice rise and fall, and absorbing the body weight in his knees as he lowered back down kept transitions smooth. Out of hold, he sometimes throws away his “lines” – snatching the arm back in, rather than taking that extra beat to extend the fingers and create a lovely shape.
