|BBC Strictly Come Dancing’s favourite male professionals, Ian Waite and Vincent Simone are joining together for the very first time in their brand new production – The Ballroom Boys, a show they say is going to be “a lot of fun!” as the title suggests! Neither are strangers to life on the road, with It Takes Two regular Ian having done several tours with former dance partners Camilla Sacre-Dallerup, Natalie Lowe, and most recently Oti Mabuse. While Strictly’s original and best-loved Italian, Vincent, has graced theatres up and down the country with Flavia Cacace in their Argentine Tango inspired shows.
So what made the two popular professionals join up for a so-called ‘boys tour’? “With so many Strictly tours going out on the road in 2019, we wanted to do something a bit different, so Vincent and I spoke about a boys reunion and The Ballroom Boys idea came to life!” says Waite. Argentine Tango legend Vincent and King of the Ballroom Ian, will be joined by two professional female dancers and a wonderful vocalist. The night will be packed with dances, songs and loads of banter! Simone, who has lost none of his cheeky Italian charm, says “I’m looking forward to working with Ian again! As you know, we are both quite funny, if I say so myself!”
Expect dances including the Waltz, Quickstep, Paso Doble, Foxtrot and of course, the Argentine Tango!
Get ready for a high intensity evening of glitz and glamour with Ian & Vincent… THE BALLROOM BOYS! The Ballroom Boys 2019 Tour takes the two dancers across the UK and Ireland between April and June, with extra dates added in the autumn (Sept/Oct), due to huge demand.
Tickets are now on sale directly through Weymouth Pavilion or at www.theballroomboys.com
