Strictly Classical: classical music and dance
Another dance with roots in the Baroque era, the Hornpipe is best-known nowadays for its lively incarnation in Henry Wood's Fantasia on British Sea Songs. The dance itself incorporates lots of nautical moves, including holding the hand to the forehead as if looking out to sea. Probably won't be on the next series of Strictly.
