STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke will be coming to the Royal and Derngate later this month.
The professional dancer appears alongside Hollyoaks actress Summer Strallen in the show entitled From Ballroom to Broadway. It features a mixture of new choreography and timeless tunes.
He said: “We always begin in Northampton, it is a nice place and Derngate is a great theatre, it is great to be coming back.
“The great thing about Derngate is it is a nice size stage, you can dance properly, some can be a little small and they are tricky.”
Speaking about his ‘Strictly’ experience, he said: “I have been lucky as the girls I have danced with have been a lot of fun. Some can dance, some can’t; I work it out as they come. It is different with each one, it is no more difficult or easy, you have to work it out.
“I did really enjoy doing the American Smooth in Blackpool with Fiona, and we did a great Quickstep.
“It’s not about winning for me, it is about making sure they have a great time.”
The show is on January 16 and 17. To book tickets call 01604 624811 or visit www.royalandderngate.co.uk.
