Strictly Come Dancing’s Vincent and Flavia will fight it out to become King or Queen of the dance floor before reuniting in their own show Midnight Tango at the Phoenix Theatre from 30 Jan to 2 March

This weekend Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace will compete to become this year’s Strictly Come Dancing winner! For the first time ever the dance partners will face each other in a difficult final to see who will lift the glitter ball and be crowned King or Queen of the dance floor.

Vincent and Flavia have appeared on the show since 2006 and this is the first year that the dance partners will appear in the final against each other. Flavia and Olympian Louis Smith have won the hearts of the nation and will bring out their most energetic and exciting dances to date, while Vincent will no doubt continue to wow audiences with his routines with actress Dani Harmar.

Vincent and Flavia will be reunited in Midnight Tango which will open at the Phoenix Theatre on 5th February, with previews from 30th January and will run until 2nd March. They both star in and have choreographed the show, which brings to life all the drama, sensuality and elegance of the tango. This will be your chance to see the energy and passion of this dance live in your area!

Midnight Tango is set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires. Vincent and Flavia are joined on stage by some of the finest tango dancers in the world, and, between them, they take the audience on a journey into the heart of this intoxicating city, as danger and excitement, joy and jealousy, pain and passion combine into a spectacular and explosive evening.

We also have a quote from the co-producer of the show Arlene Phillips:
 "I loved Vincent and Flavia from the first moment I saw them dance together when I was judging Strictly Dance Fever and they were the star guests. I'm not surprised to see them go head to head in the final and let's hope for the first time ever, this will be a Strictly draw. Midnight Tango has been acclaimed throughout the UK and with a possibility of a Strictly glitter ball can only add to the excitement already generated by the show."

MIDNIGHT TANGO is directed by Olivier Award-winning choreographer Karen Bruce, who has choreographed for both Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance on BBC 1, and whose theatre credits include Pacific Overtures (Donmar Warehouse) and Footloose (West End and UK Tour). Choreography is by Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace, design by Morgan Large and lighting by James Whiteside. The live music will be provided by top tango band, Tango Siempre, featuring vocalist Miguel Angel.
