Strictly Come Dancing stars combine in brand new stage show
Strictly Come Dancing star Graziano Di Prima is preparing to turn up the heat when he embarks on his first-ever solo UK tour. The 25-year-old Graziano will be setting out to dazzle and delight audiences around the country with his stunning dance show, Havana Nights, which culminates at the Lichfield Garrick theatre on April 5. Graziano, who will be joined on tour by fellow Strictly professional and fiancée Giada Lini, promises an exciting mix of Latin dances with individual performances from himself and Giada, as well as entertaining group numbers with their supporting dancers. Havana Nights sets out to be a fantastic, fast-paced dance show with amazing routines to entertain and wow audiences. There will also be opportunities for a special pre-show meet and greet with Graziano and Giada.
Graziano and wife Giada to star in Havana Nights dance show
Graziano, who was born in Sicily and started dancing at the age of six, joined the Strictly team in 2018, partnering DJ Vick Hope through a series of sparkling and high-energy routines. He recently made Strictly history when he performed the first same sex couple dance with fellow professional Johannes Radebe. Giada is ranked in the top 25 in the world in the Latin-American style. She won the Italian Showdance Championship nine times and represented Italy at the World Showdance Championships. Giada also joined Strictly, as a professional dancer, in 2018. Graziano commented: "I'm so excited to be able to bring Havana Nights to the many dance fans we know there are across the UK. Giada and I have worked closely together on the choreography and content for the show and we're really proud of it. Now I can't wait to visit so many venues around the country, meeting fans and performing all my favourite routines for them live on stage."
