Ian Waite & Vincent Simone - ACT 2

South Shields Customs House

Wednesday 22nd June 2022

South Shields Arts Centre, The Customs House will be waltzing into summer with the arrival of Strictly Come Dancing double act, Ian Waite and Vincent Simone.

The duo are promising a glittering night of dance, comedy, song, and stacks of old school variety glamour when they bring their 5-star rated ACT TWO show to the South Tyneside venue on Wednesday 22nd June.

Vincent will introduce his new leading lady, Despina Violari, a world class Argentine Tango and Salsa specialist, while Ian’s leading lady, the phenomenal Faye Huddleston of Burn the Floor and Rip It Up fame, returns along with West End vocalist Amelia Adams.

Ian says of the new show “Myself and Vince joined up for the 2019 tour because we wanted to do something completely different to all the other Strictly tours. We never imagined that it would be so popular, the audiences loved it, which is amazing! So, we thought, why not do it again?”

Vincent adds, “I’m so happy to be performing with Ian again. We have loved getting back on the road and entertaining audiences. And I’m sure they have missed me a lot!! We are really over-whelmed with all the support we saw for the first leg of Act Two in the autumn.”

Having both been professional dancers for the hit BBC show for a number of years, with their partners including Zoe Ball, Penny Lancaster, Rachel Stevens, and Louisa Lytton, Ian and Vincent continued to be involved with the show in different roles - Ian was a regular on It Takes Two for ten years with his ‘Waite’s Warm-Up’ section until announcing in May 2021 that he would be stepping away from the show and Vincent regularly choreographs the Argentine Tango routines that are seen on the main programme.

The fabulous Strictly Come Dancing stars promise another wonderful evening, with beautiful costumes, gorgeous lighting and world-class routines. If you enjoyed The Ballroom Boys, then make sure you don’t miss the hilarious dancing duo when they bring you…ACT TWO.
