Sizzling Latin dancers Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace are returning to the stage with their most explosive show to date.

The pair, who appeared on Strictly Come Dancing from 2006 to 2012, have picked up rave reviews for their previous shows, and Tango Moderno is described as their most exciting performance yet.

When they danced Midnight Tango at the Theatre Royal Bath in 2013, the show was one of the best selling in its history.

They are returning to the theatre, in Saw Close, for yet another energetic and spectacular show.

The pair are some of the most successful ballroom, Latin American and Argentine tango performers and choreographers in the UK.

Tango Moderno, which they have choreographed, will feature 10 professional dancers and top West End singers alongside Simone and Cacace.

The soundtrack is packed with classic hits, accompanied by energetic and colourful routines.

Simone and Cacace’s professional titles include being the UK show dance champions from 2003-2006 and world Argentinean tango champions in 2005.

But they came to prominence on the BBC’s hit show Strictly Come Dancing in 2006.

Simone reached the final in 2012 with actor Dani Harmer, while Cacace won the same year with gymnast Louis Smith.

Simone continues to be involved in Strictly, appearing on the sister show It Takes Two to rate the weekend’s dances and as a choreographer for many of the Argentinean tango routines.

Their previous live shows were described by critics as ‘a must-see for Strictly fans’ who can experience professional dances at their very best, and ‘quite simply breathtaking’.

The pair have received Olivier Award nominations in the family entertainment categories for their stage shows.

Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace will perform Tango Moderno at the Theatre Royal Bath from January 29 to February 3, 2018.

Performances from January 29-31 will be at 7.30pm, and shows on February 1-3 will be at 8pm.

There will be matinees at 2.30pm on January 31 and February 3.

Tickets, priced £21-41.50, are available from www.theatreroyal.org.uk or 01225 448844
