Strictly Confidential UK Tour
STRICTLY Confidential, written and directed by Craig Revel Horwood, will begin touring the UK in June 2013.
The show, which follows the continued success of BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing, stars Lisa Riley, Artem Chigvintsev, Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite.
The four stars will take fans on an intimate journey into their backgrounds and motivations live on stage, giving audiences personal insight into what led them to their Strictly Come Dancing adventure through music, song and breathtaking dance routines.
Actress Lisa Riley, best known for her role in Emmerdale and currently starring in Series 10 of Strictly, said:
“When I first signed up to Strictly I had no idea that I’d be able to ballroom dance, so I was thrilled to be asked to do the live tour. Being able to be a part of Strictly Confidential as well is such a great opportunity and I’m really looking forward to continue working with Craig, Artem, Natalie and Ian well into next year.”
Ian Waite has twice reached the final of Strictly Come Dancing with partners Zoe Ball and Denise Lewis. His story started when he began dancing at the age of 10, going on to become the European Youth Latin American Champion, before joining Strictly Come Dancing in 2004.
Four times Australian Dance Champion, Natalie Lowe joined Strictly in Series 7 and reached the final in her debut year as Ricky Whittle’s dance partner.
Artem Chigvintsev joined Strictly in 2008, dancing with Kara Tointon and eventually winning the series. Although a hugely popular dancer in the UK, his love of dance began soon after he was born in Russia in 1982. Inspired by his mother, he started dance classes at an early age.
Craig Revel Horwood, who also directs the Strictly Come Dancing Live arena tours said: “It’s exciting to give fans an autobiographical take on this hit show, whilst also incorporating some of the shows favourite moments. I’ve been working on Strictly Confidential for a while now and it’s a dream that everything is all coming together.”
