THE Dance to the Music UK Tour 2020 is waltzing into Dorset next year choreographed and performed by Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff.

She will be joined by Jake Quickenden – the former Dancing on Ice winner, X Factor star and Hollyoaks newcomer. In addition, the show will include performances from South African National Champions and Dancing with the Stars professionals Marcella Solimeo, Dylan Daniels and other world-renowned professional dancers. The cast will be working closely with Stagecoach Performing Arts Schools across the country, enabling local talent aged 4 –18 to take part in most of the shows. With almost 2000 school throughout the UK, Stagecoach opens up the world of performance to the stars of tomorrow. Kristina said: “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.

“Nurturing fresh talent is extremely important to us as a team, and this show could offer life-changing opportunities to many youngsters.”

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.

Kristina adds: “This show will have something for everyone. 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.”
