Ian Waite.

Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers Ian Waite and Oti Mabuse are going on a 60-date tour of the UK with their new stage show.

An Audience With Ian Waite & Oti Mabuse – Rhythm of the Night will tour from 20th March 2018 until 17th June 2018.

About the show

Waite and Mabuse will treat audiences to Latin and Ballroom favourites, while guests will also have the chance to learn more about the dancers.

In addition to the performances, there is a limited number of 30 higher-priced tickets per show that include a meet-and-greet before the show for a chance to have your photograph taken with the dancers and have a special souvenir programme signed.

The dancers

Waite began dancing aged ten, when he accompanied his younger brother to Saturday dance lessons at home in Reading.

He went on to make it to the European Professional Latin Championships finals in 2003 and since leaving Strictly as a competitive dancer, he has instead joined its behind-the-scenes It Takes Two programme with his own slot, Waite’s Wednesday Warm-Up.

South African dancer Mabuse started dancing at the age of four and made a name for herself as the undefeated eight-times South African Latin American Champion, while studying civil engineering at university.

She then moved to Germany to start her international career as a professional dancer, becoming German Champion, Bronze Medallist at The World Championships and Vice European Champion.

Before joining Strictly, she had worked on its German version, Let’s Dance.
