Pete Doherty Takes Up Ballroom Dancing

(Gibson) Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty has been taking ballroom dancing lessons as practice for his performance in French period piece Confession d'un enfant du siècle, in which he'll play 19th century poet Alfred de Musset.

Doherty has blogged frequently about the role on his website, saying, "Today I had my first waltz lesson, in preparation for the forthcoming film: Confession d'un enfant du siecle. My character must display natural grace and poise — as was expected of a young aristocrat and dandy of 1830s French society.

"I was going to film the lesson, but it didn't seem appropriate. The teacher was just as I had imagined – straight backed, horsewhip in hand, and a brutal perfectionist. What a day!" more on this story
