Game of Thrones goes ballroom

See a couple on America's Strictly Come Dancing channel Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen in a Westeros-inspired viennese waltz

Now we know people love to sing along to the opening credits of Game of Thrones. The evidence is all over YouTube.


And if you’ve ever found yourself toe-tapping, swaying or even full on waltzing as the towers and turrets of Westeros appear on screen, we think it’s fair to assume you’re not the only one. It’s okay to admit it. This is a safe space.

But it turns out that that the epic theme tune to our favourite fantasy series is even more perfect for prancing than we ever imagined.

Last night on Dancing with the Stars (that’s America’s Strictly Come Dancing, complete with our own Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman), High School Musical actor Corbin Bleu and his professional dancing partner Karina took on the characters of Khal Drogo and his Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen, to perform a viennese waltz to the hit HBO drama’s theme tune. Dragons, Iron Throne and all.

The judges didn’t love it as much as we did – he only got 23 points – but at least we can use this as inspiration next time we tune into Game of Thrones. Just maybe move the coffee table out of the way first…
