Nadiya & Kai Announce UK Dates for ‘Once Upon A Time’

Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington have announced they are to tour the UK throughout Spring 2023 with their brand-new dance spectacular ‘Once Upon A Time’.

Starring together on their own headline tour for the first time, ballroom superstars Nadiya and Kai’s new dance production is a fairytale like no other, with the couple having created a stunning show that showcases their incredible journeys and shines a spotlight on their love affair with dance.

The show will also celebrate Nadiya and Kai’s wonderful relationship on and off the dance floor. The couple will share with audiences across the country their inspirations and aspirations, whilst also telling the story of their remarkable journey from childhood dancers to ballroom and Latin champions – and, of course, becoming TV stars.

From the producers of smash hit dance shows Here Come The Boys, Rip It Up The 60s and Remembering The Oscars, Once Upon a Time will be a lavish production with beautiful choreography, stunning costumes and a supremely talented cast of dancers and musicians.

The 36 show UK tour begins in Portsmouth on 27th March and ends in Dartford on 7th May, including additional matinee performances in, Swindon (18th April), Billingham (20th April) and London (29th April).

Ukrainian-Slovenian dance star Nadiya Bychkova is a two-time World Champion and European Champion in Ballroom and Latin ‘10’ Dance, who made her Strictly Come Dancing debut in 2017. Since then, her Strictly partners have included David James, Lee Ryan, Davood Ghadami, Dan Walker and Matt Goss.

Looking ahead to the tour, Nadiya said: “Kai and I are extremely excited to perform our brand-new show ‘Once Upon A Time’ to audiences all over the UK. We have both toured with some great shows in the past so now to headline our own tour together will be something special. We’re really looking forward to sharing this experience with our fans and giving them an insight into our love of ballroom.”

Kai, a Junior World Latin American champion, spent four years as a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars in Ireland before becoming a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing in 2021. During his first series, Kai was partnered with television presenter AJ Odudu, making it all the way to the coveted final, before an injury forced AJ to withdraw.

Kai said: “To headline a show in the UK like ‘Once Upon A Time’ is a dream come true, and to do it alongside Nadiya will make it even more amazing. We believe we have assembled one of the best casts around to support us on tour so we cannot wait to get out there next Spring and entertain audiences across the country by giving them all a show to remember.”

It’s an on-stage romance that you will not want to miss.
