This weekend we will see Will Bayley complete his second dance of the Strictly Come Dancing series.

This week he dances the salsa, a popularised syncretic dance style, that incorporates elements of different cultural origins through a variety of movements to a four-beat rhythm.  It can include sensual kicks, flicks, and lots of ribcage movement.

Will Bayley produce a mild or hot salsa performance? We will have to wait until Saturday to find out! However, what we know is that he will be dancing with partner Janette Manrara to Gloria Estefan’s, “1, 2, 3.”. A real chance for Bayley to “steal your heart away.”

At Table Tennis England we are all looking forward to the performance and wish Bayley good luck as we continue our #BackBayley campaign.

Voting begins this week, and viewers can vote online after all performances are finished. Remember to register an account with the BBC here, and then you are all set to go when the voting commences.

Table Tennis England is backing Bayley to help promote the sport to a new audience, and show that table tennis is for everyone. We are proud to promote inclusivity throughout our sport, and we encourage all of our clubs to use disability-friendly facilities. For further information, visit our being inclusive section.
