***** “Mesmerising” Elementary What’s On
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.
***** “A hugely entertaining night out!” Crawley Observer
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
Ian and Vincent are the perfect comedy double act. Mix that with incredible dancing and stunning vocals and you get The Ballroom Boys – an old-school style variety show that is proving to be a big hit!
Argentine Tango legend Vincent and King of the Ballroom Ian, are joined by
professional dancers Ksenia Zsikhotska, from Dancing with the Stars Ireland, and
the multi-talented Crystal Main, who has toured with dance shows around the world.
On vocals is the Olivier award-winning James Lomas, who has played Billy in the
smash-hit musical ‘Billy Elliot’ in London’s West End.
Simone, who has lost none of his cheeky Italian charm, says “I’m really enjoying working with Ian again and I get to share my amazing personality with you all for the first time!”
Dances include the Waltz, Samba, Paso Doble, Rumba and of course, the Argentine Tango!
