Two of the professional dancers from BBC 1’s Strictly Come Dancing will dance at Jersey Opera House next summer.
Pasha Kovalev and Katya Virshilas are touring the UK from March 2013 with a sensational new ‘live’ show, An Evening with the Stars from Strictly Come Dancing,
The production, to be performed at Jersey Opera House on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th June 2013, will feature Pasha and Katya along with other guest dancers.
Beautifully costumed, they will demonstrate a series of stunning dance routines, accompanied by a full audio-visual backdrop. They will also offer a Q & A section and there will be an element of audience participation. Plus there will be an appearance by a Jersey dance school.
Pasha is starring in the current series of Strictly Come Dancing with Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh. The Siberian-born dancer first joined the popular television show in 2011 when he stormed to the finals with Waterloo Road star Chelsee Healey, only narrowly missing out on the title to McFly’s Harry Judd and his partner Aliona Vilani. “Being able to bring that beautiful form of art into everyone’s home is a dream come true!” says Pasha, who will now bring his passion to the Jersey Opera House stage.
Pasha’s professional partner, Lithuanian-Canadian Katya, starred in series seven, eight and nine of Strictly Come Dancing. She partnered celebrities Phil Tufnell (former England cricketer), Gavin Henson (Welsh Rugby Union player) and Dan Lobb (ITV Daybreak presenter).
