Dance show Here Come The Boys, featuring well-known Strictly Come Dancing stars, has announced it will take to the West End for a run of performances in 2021.
Here Come The Boys sees Aljaž Škorjanec battling with Graziano di Prima as well as former Strictly pro dancers Pasha Kovalev and Robin Windsor to be named ‘King of the Dance’.
Celebrity Strictly finalist Karim Zeroual will host the show and also display his own incredible dance moves.
Here Come The Boys: What's in the show?
"In a club setting, a live resident DJ will spin a cutting-edge soundtrack of dance-floor anthems, club classics and guilty pleasures as Aljaž, Graziano, Pasha and Robin go head-to-head in a battle of Latin, Ballroom, Commercial and Contemporary dance disciplines - with the audience judging the contest," the makers of the production said.
"To keep Here Come the Boys fresh and exciting there will be some incredible cast revelations, substitutions and additions throughout the 16-week season at the Garrick Theatre."
Aljaž said: “I am delighted to welcome such an amazing cast to join me in Here Come the Boys at the Garrick Theatre. I had such a great time on tour last year, so to bring this show into the West End is a dream come true. I can’t wait to battle it out with these boys and let the audience decide as there can only be one King of the Dance! Seriously though, it’s going to be bigger and better than before and I can’t wait! 2020 has been a really tough year for everyone, and this is going to be the perfect antidote and start to 2021.”
Pasha said: “I was so upset when the 2020 Here Come the Boys tour was postponed due to the pandemic so to hear that we’re taking it into the West End is truly amazing! This show, with the incredible cast of other dancers, is going to blow the audience away. It’s a dance marathon and only one of us will end up as King of the Dance…and of course that’s going to be me!”
Graziano said: “I was home in Sciliy in the middle of the pandemic so I was in need of some good news….then my agent called and I couldn’t believe that I was being asked to star in Here Come the Boys and to top it off play the West End! I’d heard how incredible the show was back in 2019 so am super excited to be involved in this brand new production. We’ll be opening in London’s West End with great friends and my lovely fiance Giada Lini…what could be better!”
Robin said: “I’d heard how good Here Come the Boys was on tour so when Aljaž asked me to join the cast I didn’t have to think twice. I have so missed dancing and am really looking forward to working with him and Pasha again and getting to know Graziano and I loved what Karim did in the 2019 series. I am going head to head with four great dancers to see who might be crowned King of the Dance and I can’t wait! Its full-on dance!"
Karim said: “To be asked to join the cast of Here Come the Boys was so unexpected. To be honest I was a bit nervous at first but with some encouragement from Aljaž I knew I had to do it. I’ll be hosting the show, spinning some records and showing off a few of my tricks. I have a few surprises up my sleeve that the audience won’t be expecting! This show has it all... great dance routines, a world champion beatboxer, fantastic music and some audience participation. If you want a good time after a difficult year this is the perfect ticket!”
