THE Dance to the Music UK Tour 2020 is waltzing to the Isle of Wight on Sunday, January 12.

The tour — curated, choreographed and performed by Strictly Come Dancing favourite Kristina Rihanoff — also features host and former X-Factor star Jake Quickenden.

The show will include performances from Dancing with the Stars professionals Marcella Solimeo and Dylan Daniels, and other world-renowned professional dancers.

The cast will work closely with Stagecoach performing arts schools across the country, enabling local talent aged four to 18 to take part.

Linda Smith, one of the principals of the Island Dance and Theatre Company, said: "We were phoned up by Kristina Rihanoff, who asked us if we would like to join her and her company.

"We are thrilled to have been asked and our students are excited for January."

Speaking of the collaboration, Kristina said: “We are extremely proud to be supporting young local dancers and offering them the chance to perform on stage in front of a live audience.

"Nurturing fresh talent is extremely important to us, and this show could offer life-changing opportunities to many youngsters.

“Dance to the Music is an ultimate family show. There is something for everyone. You will be dancing in your seats to your favourite music hits, whatever the age you are.”

The show aims to portray the evolution of dance through musical eras and genres, starting with the roaring ‘20s and the arrival of Charleston and tap, through the dance styles of every decade.
