Let’s dance

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ON STAGE -

STRICTLY Come Danc­ing stars Vin­cent Si­mone and Flavia Ca­cace will have their world premier of the show in Ayles­bury Water­side Theatre.

The fa­mous dance duo, who have be­come world Ar­gen­tine tango cham­pi­ons, hope to wow the stage be­tween Thurs­day, Septem­ber 17 and Satur­day, Septem­ber 19.

The show will be the fi­nal time the pair per­form to­gether, they have re­cently also per­formed Mid­night Tango and Dance Til Dawn.

Vin­cent said: “Au­di­ences get so much value, there are amaz­ing live bands and songs, the whole story is com­pletely dif­fer­ent from what we have done be­fore. It is a show that you do not get the chance to see ev­ery day.

“We have had two suc­cess­ful shows and we hope that we have come up with some­thing even bet­ter. It is a love story, very emo­tional, it is a story that ev­ery­body can re­late to, it is go­ing to be an amaz­ing show. We are very happy with the show.”

Vin­cent per­formed as a pro­fes­sional dancer on Strictly Come Danc­ing from 2006 un­til 2012 and Flavia was also a pro­fes­sional dancer on the hit TV show. The two are both orig­i­nally from Italy.

Flavia said: “We have had such a fan­tas­tic time cre­at­ing and danc­ing in Mid­night Tango and Dance ’Til Dawn. It’s an in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence to per­form live in front of our won­der­ful au­di­ence night af­ter night, but all good things must come to an end, so we’re cre­at­ing our fi­nal ever theatre show. It’s go­ing to be in­ti­mate, in­tense and full of our award-win­ning Ar­gen­tine tango. The Last Tango is go­ing to show­case our best work and most beau­ti­ful dance moves be­fore we fi­nally say farewell to theatre.”

Talk­ing about his time on Strictly Come Danc­ing, Vin­cent said: “It is some­thing that will stay with me for the rest of my life. When I per­form at the theatre, it makes it more re­al­is­tic, it is an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence be­ing on stage and TV is so much more cold.”

When they danced the tango on TV dur­ing the show, they be­came the first peo­ple to dance the fa­mous Ar­gen­tinean dance live on TV in the UK.
