Strictly’s Vincent and Flavia tango into town

Dance 'Til Dawn
Dance 'Til Dawn

Tantalising tango team Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace return to the city theatre with their passionate routines from Monday.

They stole our hearts with breathtaking performances – complete with razor-sharp footwork – on Strictly but fans will have missed their partnership on the last series of the BBC show.

Both dancers abstained from competing because – among other things – they were working on their new stage show, Dance ’Til Dawn.

Their first ever foray into theatrical performance was in 2010, with the sensational Midnight Tango.

The show thrilled more than half a million people across the UK, both on tour (enjoying multiple runs at Milton Keynes Theatre) and in London’s West End.

Dance ’Til Dawn promises to be just as spectacular.

Set in 1940s Los Angeles, the story follows the emergingromance between a starlet and her handsome lover.

Recreating the Golden Age of Hollywood (think Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers) Dance ’Til Dawn will transport you to a time of elegance.

Dance ’Til Dawn runs until Saturday May 10.

> Share in the friendships, the secrets, the laughs and the tears of four ordinary women - and the one token man – living extraordinary lives – on Sunday at MK Theatre.

Hot Flush! starring Lesley Joseph is billed as being more fun than joining a gym and cheaper than botox – heck, it might even leave you feeling young again!

Looking ahead ballet lovers can look forward to Northern Ballet’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This dazzling production, at MK Theatre from May 20-24, sees the romantic antics of a touring dance company played out on one magivall night as the company travels by sleeper train from London to Edinburgh.

> Another busy week lies ahead at the Stables.

The Grumpy Old Women return tonight but – just to add to your reasons to grumble –the show is sold out.

Singer Scott Matthews is ready to make your evening though, over on Stage 2.

Get your fill of melodic, progressive rock tomorrow with Lifesigns – or immerse yourself in the sounds of Boo Hewerdine on Stage 2.

British multi-instrumentalists Blackheart defy categorisation – enjoy their unique blend of intelligent contemporary pop on Saturday.

On Sunday, Artur Pizarro plays Rachmaninov, while father and daughter folk duo Martin and Eliza Carthy unite.

Tuesday will see Irish music legends The Fureys & Davey Arthur put on a night to remember.

Alternatively, enjoy a mix of jazz and swing courtesy of the Adrian Cox Quartet.

Wednesday welcomes Dutch pop-rock band Focus and quirky husband and wife duo Haddo.
