If you were glued to your screens watching “Strictly Come Dancing” in autumn, you may like to head to The Apex to see one of the TV show’s former dancers in her own production.
“Dance to the Music” on January 28 is a glamorous dance show, choreographed and performed by ex-Strictly Come Dancing professional Kristina Rihanoff, which features over 15 different styles of dancing.
The show portrays the evolution of dance, from the roaring 20s with the Charleston and tap dances, through the decades with lindy hop, jitterbug, rock ‘n’ roll, hustle, funk, disco, breakdancing, street and hip hop, right up to modern day ballroom with Latin salsa and the spectacular Argentine tango.
Kristina says: “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 music, colour and incredible movement, which will take you on a remarkable and immersive journey.”
Hosted by Jake Quickenden who found fame on the “X Factor” and “I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here”) the show also features talented and versatile South African dance team Marcella Solimeo and Dylon Daniels from “Dancing With The Stars”.
With fabulous costumes and breath-taking choreography, the dances will be performed to an upbeat soundtrack, packed with pop hits and classic tunes, and linked by a light-hearted script with plenty of humour and showbiz anecdotes.
Kristina adds: “’Dance To The Music’ is an ultimate family show… you will be dancing in your seats to your favourite music hits whatever the age you are.”
