Why I’m still reeling from school dance
CAN dancing improve mental health, asks Dame Darcey Bussell, above? She concludes it can – but a former prima ballerina and Strictly judge would say that... As for me, getting paired with the best Scottish country dancer in primary school because we were the same height had the opposite effect. She was silken brilliance while I was the wooden floor in her Canadian Barn Dance. I bear the mental scars yet.
