Waterstones Says

Tracing her formidable four decade-career as a ballroom star, Strictly Come Dancing Head Judge Shirley Ballas’ no-holds-barred memoir lifts the lid on the adrenaline-fuelled world of competitive dancing.

Leave it all on the floor...

Queen of Latin Ballroom, Shirley Ballas has a spectacular dance career spanning over 40 years - she has Cha-Cha'd her way across the world's dance floors to become a multi-award-winning ballroom champion and one of the most renowned dancers in the world. In 1996, Shirley retired from competitive dancing to become a highly-acclaimed coach and now holds the enviable position of Head Judge on BBC One's prime time show Strictly Come Dancing.

In Behind the Sequins, she leads us through her dramatic and determined life, from growing up in a rough estate on the Wirral and leaving home at 14 years old, to conquering the high-octane world of ballroom and coping with betrayal, bullying, two broken marriages and a personal tragedy that left Shirley and her family devastated.

Speaking from the heart, Shirley leaves her dancing shoes at the door to tell you the story of a fiery, strong-willed grafter who could make the brat pack blush.
