As the glitter ball and fake tans fade into memory it’s hard not to miss the heady days of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing - but fear not, because the twinkling sequinned stars of ballroom and Latin are heading our way.
Fans of the popular show can still get their fix of glitz, glamour and grace at the Congress Theatre with Anton and Erin in Just Gotta Dance (February 12) and Vincent and Flavia in The Last Tango (April 19-23).
Anton du Beke has performed in every series of Strictly Come Dancing since its inception and he’s just enjoyed a successful season with celebrity partner Katie Derham. Erin Boag, who has been Anton’s dance partner since 1997 and performed in ten series of Strictly, will once again join him in their brand new production.
This all new show features sensational choreography, stunning costumes and orchestra performing timeless classics including Night and Day, and Lullaby of Broadway, as well as Fever, Too Damn Hot, Downtown, Jealousy, Bye Bye Blackbird and New York New York.
Just Gotta Dance is completed with vocalist Lance Ellington, six world class ensemble dancers and Richard Balcombe, once again, leading the London Concert Orchestra.
Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace return for a sizzling performance of all-new show The Last Tango which fittingly will be their last ever live outing together.
Vincent and Flavia have set the box office lines on fire in the past with sell-out shows Midnight Tango and Dance til Dawn, and demand is expected to be as strong as ever.
Twenty years of dancing together has seen them become Strictly Come Dancing favourites, world dance title-holders and stars in their own West End productions, but the nation’s best-loved Argentine Tango Champions are saying goodbye to the stage in this live performance. This show promises to be intimate, passionate and an explosive performance which will thrill audiences.
