I became a fan of Strictly Come Dancing after about 5 years of it being on TV, I always loved Flavia  Cacace (and her abs!) and Vincent Simone's lively character.

I didn't know what to expect when I went to see Tango Moderno at the Regent Theatre, Stoke, obviously I was expecting superb dancing but didn't know it would include current music and modern themes too, I had to explain what 'Tinder' was to my 70 year old Mother in law! There was all genres of dance including Waltz, Rumba, Quickstep and of course the Argentine Tango, we also saw some fantastic Hip Hop and contemporary too. The storytelling was engaging, and both singers Tom Parsons and Rebecca Lisweski were outstanding, their rendition of Sam Smith's 'May I lay by your Side' was emotional.

The costumes were dazzling and the change of scenery was fast-paced and cleverly done.

Even if you're not a fan of Ballroom dancing, this show covers all aspects of music and dance which pleased every audience member, the standing ovation at the end proved this!
