Three Strictly Come Dancing professionals are uniting for a live show.

Strictly dancer Kristina Rihanoff has created Dance To The Music to tell the story of 100 years of dance.

It has been announced this week that Oksana Platero, who danced with Judge Rinder last year, has joined the tour alongside her husband Jonathan Platero.

The show will feature ballroom and Latin routines, but also break-dancing, disco and hip-hop.

Kristina is reuniting with fellow Strictly professional dancer Robin Windsor after taking a break to have a baby with rugby player Ben Cohen.

They will present some amazing lifts and breathtaking routines in sparkling costumes.

Dance To The Music will be shown at Westlands Theatre, in Westbourne Close, Yeovil on February 22 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £30-48, are available from or on 01935422884.
