This Blind-Date Dancing Show Puts Two Strangers in a Situation That Might Be More Intimate Than Sex
This weekend, a clip from the U.K. reality show Flirty Dancing made its way across the ocean, and on the surface it's a lot. The short of it is that two strangers are taught the same dance, and then upon meeting for the first time, they're asked to perform it together. The premise? An absolute equal mix of cringe and terror, wrapped into a date. The result? A beautiful summation of physical chemistry, gorgeous choreography, and a pinch of vain relief that the person on the other end of that dance routine isn't ugly. And it all happens at a sweeping romantic destination, like a boardwalk or an observatory or an Arby's (just kidding, that's my dream location).

Spoiler for the two guys in the Paloma Faith dance:
I'm literally sparked with excitement. Something like this brings joy to every fiber of my being. As a dancer, lover and giver I just have to say thank you for giving this gift of shared information. #FlirtyDancing is capable of igniting bonds between so many. Live, love, Dance!— Marcee Davis (@artisticmarc) November 18, 2019
What a wonderfully different way to meet someone in such an intimate and beautiful way— Ranaynay (@Rzabel2016) November 19, 2019
You know when people who don't understand the suspension of disbelief make that tired joke about musicals "oh right, all these strangers just met and now they all know the same song and choreography..."This is the ultimate retort to that joke.— Spurg (@pspurgeo) November 17, 2019
I’m ugly sobbing, I feel like this is the first time I’ve seen the exact moment two people realized they were in love and they didn’t say a word— Tyler Amato (@zipadeedoodles) November 18, 2019
Finally, a dating show concept that's wholesome and not clickbait. There's nothing more relaxing and vulnerable than doing reliant dance routines like this. There's excitement, focus, energy, eye contact. Their bodies communicated a connection 20 questions couldn't dream of doing— Ferris Holmes (@MOA__Noona) November 18, 2019
This is so wholesome and adorable and exactly what I need to see that the whole world isn’t awful and jaded and I need to know where I can watch more of it, please.— amanda hugandkiss a turkeyⓋ (@wendybyrdm) November 21, 2019
The perfect concept. Establish feelings through genuine feeling-making.— Pam #ProudOfMasha (@anncampbell111) November 18, 2019
If these two didn’t get together please don’t tell me. I feel like I just watched them fall for each other in real time.— Jenny (@Sartorite) November 17, 2019
I have never liked reality tv, I’ve never watched any one of them but I’d watch the hell out of this! This is so cool.— Ruby Blue Magic (@rubybeemagic) November 18, 2019
Also there is going to be a US version but with a "twist"
US version debuts on Fox 12/29, and of course they have already ruined it by adding a “twist”—person learns 2 dances and chooses the partner with whom they feel the best connection. This is why we can’t have nice things :/— Renee King (@reneenecole) November 17, 2019
