From the screen to the stage

Posted on January 30, 2012


We’ve enjoyed watching them in our living rooms – now “Strictly Come Dancing” stars Katya Virshilas and Pasha Kovalev are to join forces on a national tour with their new show.

In venues across the UK from March 27, Katya and Pasha will take to the stage for an evening of exhibition dance routines, featuring the rumba, waltz, foxtrot, tango, jive and more. Ryan Hammond and Lindsey Muckle, rising Latin stars, will join Katya and Pasha, and the show will also feature up to 40 young dancers.

The evening will also offer the opportunity for the audience to put their questions to Katya and Pasha and five lucky members of the audience will even be given the chance to join the cast on stage in their very own “Strictly” dance competition.

The tour opens on March 27 at the Assembly Hall in Tunbridge Wells and concludes on May 6 at Rothes Halls, Glenrothes.

See for tour dates and booking details.
