Tickets released for Ian Waite and Vincent Simone – Act Two

Strictly Come Dancing double act, Ian Waite and Vincent Simone, continue their 5 star rated tour ACT TWO in 2022. The tour follows on from Waite and Simone’s first 5 star offering as a dancing duo back in 2019, with more old-school variety - glamour, dance, comedy and song!

ACT TWO, which began touring in Autumn 2021, picks up again in April 2022 after a short break to continue wowing audiences.

Vincent will introduce his new leading lady, Despina Violari, a world-class Argentine Tango and Salsa specialist, while Ian’s leading lady, the phenomenal Faye Huddleston of Burn the Floor and Rip It Up fame, returns along with West End vocalist Amelia Adams.

Ian says of the new show “Myself and Vince joined up for the 2019 tour because we wanted to do something completely different to all the other Strictly tours. We never imagined that it would be so popular, the audiences loved it, which is amazing! So we thought, why not do it again?”

Vincent adds, “I’m so happy to be performing with Ian again. We have loved getting back on the road and entertaining audiences. And I’m sure they have missed me a lot!! We are really overwhelmed with all the support we saw for the first leg of Act Two in the autumn.”

Having both been professional dancers for the hit BBC show for a number of years, with their partners including Zoe Ball, Penny Lancaster, Rachel Stevens, and Louisa Lytton, Ian and Vincent continued to be involved with the show in different roles - Ian was a regular on It Takes Two for ten years with his ‘Waite’s Warm-Up’ section until announcing in May 2021 that he would be stepping away from the show and Vincent regularly choreographs the Argentine Tango routines that are seen on the main programme.

The fabulous Strictly Come Dancing stars promise another wonderful evening, with beautiful costumes, gorgeous lighting and world-class routines. If you enjoyed The Ballroom Boys, then make sure you don’t miss the hilarious dancing duo when they bring you…ACT TWO!
