Strictly stars to samba into Stourbridge

Past and present stars of hit BBC series Strictly Come Dancing are coming to Stourbridge soon to showcase their skills.

Ian Waite and Vincent Simone will be bringing Act Two of The Ballroom Boys to Stourbridge Town Hall on Saturday April 16. It is the fourth rescheduled date for the show due to the coronavirus pandemic, and follows on from a successful first show at Dudley Town Hall in 2019.

And current Strictly professional Amy Dowden – who runs a dance school in Cradley Heath – brings her show An Evening With Amy Dowden to the same venue on Tuesday April 12.

In addition Vincent is bringing another show – Tango Passions – to Stourbridge Town Hall on Wednesday September 28.

Tickets are still available for all three shows, with VIP meet and greet opportunities also available to get up close and personal with the stars. Alex Jackson, booker for Dudley Borough Halls, said:

"We're very much looking forward to hosting these exciting dance shows at Stourbridge Town Hall. Former Strictly favourites Ian and Vincent took Dudley by storm in 2019 with their show The Ballroom Boys - and Act Two looks set to be another knockout production.

"Amy is a real class act with local links and we can't wait to host a date on her eagerly anticipated UK tour."

Ian Waite appeared in seven series of Strictly from 2004 to 2010, finishing runner-up with Denise Lewis in 2004 and third place with Zoe Ball in 2005.

The 48-year-old also appeared in three of the show’s national tours and a number of Strictly specials.

Italian Vincent Simone also appeared in seven series of the show between 2004 and 2012. He danced with the likes of singer Rachel Stevens, finishing runner-up, MP Edwina Currie and actress Natalie Cassidy. He has also appeared in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!

Dowden, originally from Wales, joined the Strictly team in 2017 and was a finalist in 2019 with TV presenter Kerim Zeroual.
