Inside Croydon has a pair of VIP tickets to give away – completely FREE – to see Strictly Come Dancing‘s Kristina Rihanoff and singing host Jake Quickenden live on stage in Bromley next month in their Dance To The Music Tour.
The Dance to the Music UK Tour 2020 offers an unforgettable show which the whole family will love.
The tour is curated, choreographed and performed by Strictly favourite Rihanoff, joined by Quickenden – a past winner of Dancing on Ice winner, and X Factor star who has recently begun appearing on TV’s Hollyoaks.
In addition, the show will include electric performances from South African National Champions and Dancing With The Stars professionals Marcella Solimeo and Dylan Daniels, plus other world-renowned professional dancers.
The cast are also hugely proud to be working closely with Stagecoach Performing Arts Schools across the country, enabling local talent aged from four – 18 to take part in most of the shows. With almost 2,000 schools throughout the UK, Stagecoach opens up the world of performance to the stars of tomorrow.
“We are extremely proud to be supporting young local dancers and offering them the chance to perform on stage in front of a live audience,” Rihanoff said. “Nurturing fresh talent is extremely important to us as a team, and this show could offer life-changing opportunities to many youngsters.”
Also appearing in Bromley is the award-winning Bonnie Sullivan and her dancers from the D&B Academy of Performing Arts.
Dance to the Music is the UK’s first show to portray the evolution of dance through musical eras and genres. Starting with the roaring ’20s and the arrival of Charleston and tap, the tour will showcase 15 dance styles through every decade. Appealing to all generations and ages, the spotlight will shine on the Lindy hop, jitterbug, rock’n’roll, hustle, funk, disco, breakdancing, street, hip-hop, contemporary ballet, salsa and Argentine Tango. The foot-stomping adventure will bring the audience right up to date with modern-day ballroom and Latin.
Featuring fabulous costumes and lashings of glitz and glamour, the show will be accompanied by a brilliantly upbeat soundtrack, packed with pop hits and classic tunes that will get everyone bopping in their seats.
“This show will have something for everyone,” Rihanoff said.
“Whether you’re a lifelong ballroom-dancer, a total novice or you love watching TV shows like Strictly as a family, this is going to bring dance to life in a totally unique way. Expect a riot of music, colour and incredible movement, which will take you on a remarkable and immersive journey.
“Dance To The Music is an ultimate family show there is something for everyone. You will be dancing in your seats to your favourite music hits whatever the age you are!”
Our fabulous prize is a pair of VIP tickets, which as well as two seats for the performance includes autographed programmes and back-stage access to meet the stars of the show.
