Few reality shows have captured the imagination as much as Strictly Come Dancing. Available separately or in pairs……. Matthew & Nicole, Vincent & Flavia, Erin & Anton, James & Ola and Kristina & Robin all show off their talents and offer masterclasses in the cha cha cha and tango.
Strictly Come Dancing first waltzed onto our screens in 2004. Several series later the juggernaut shows no signs of slowing. The professional dancers on the show are now as big a draw as the celebrities they partner.
Anton du Beke’s charm and sense of fun make him one of the most popular dancers. Touted as a (slightly) younger Bruce Forsyth, he was the natural successor to Dale Winton as presenter of Hole In The Wall. Anton’s partner is Erin Boag, the vivacious Kiwi. She puts the ‘strict’ into Strictly, so much so that Julian Clary and Colin Jackson both made the final. Erin also performs with Austin Healey.
Brian Fortuna first appeared on the US Strictly, and now divides his time between LA and UK shows. Brian has partnered Heather Small and Ali Bastion, and taken part in Dancing on Wheels for BBC3. Kristina Rihanoff, the Siberian-born Latin and Mambo expert, famously partnered John Sergeant and helped him achieve the unlikely status of ‘national treasure’. She originally became a dance champion in Russia’s Far East.
Most of the other duos are also available including Vincent and Flavia, James and Ola, Matthew and Nicole as well as many of the other dance tutors and choreographers. They can all perform solo or combine with other couples; teach moves to guests, or simply demonstrate the dances that have captured a nation.
For conference audiences Erin and Anton also organise team building, ensuring that even those with two left feet can cut a dash. In their Dance Masterclass, the audience is split into teams and coached in the cha cha cha and tango. The teams then take to the floor in open competition, with the host CEO joining in as a judge. Anton and Erin finish with a demonstration of one of their own award-winning routines.
