AN Evening with Kristina Rihanoff and Tristan MacManus is coming to Ilkley next month.

The favourite Strictly duo bring their tour to the King's Hall on October 23.

Kristina says of the show, “I am so happy that I finally get to work with Tristan on tour! It’s been a long time coming.”

The couple will perform ballroom and Latin dances including the Waltz, the Tango, the Samba, and the Rumba, but there will also be added entertainment from the show’s host and singer, Mark Read, of boyband A1.

“I’m so excited about the tour. I can’t wait to get my dancing shoes back on and get started!” says Tristan.

Both Kristina and Tristan started out on ‘Dancing with the Stars USA’, before moving to the UK to appear on the BBC’s comparable ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. They have also starred in the popular dance spectacular ‘Burn the Floor’, with Kristina appearing in the West End version, while Tristan performed in the Australian touring equivalent. Tristan was also former dance captain on the ‘Dirty Dancing’ European tour, later going on to star in it

on the West End.

Mark Read’s achievements in his field are just as impressive. After clocking up hits with with A1, Mark has gone on to perform in musical ‘Guys and Dolls’, as well as writing music for the ‘Harry Potter’ soundtrack.

In ‘An Evening with…’ you will experience the beauty of Kristina and Tristan performing dances to Mark’s delightful voice, with songs like ‘It Had To Be You’, ’Don’t Stop Me Now’, and ‘What A Wonderful World’.

They will also answer questions from the audience and share some stories about life on the BBC hit show….and watch out, you may want to dust off your dancing shoes once they get you on your feet!!
