Following a sold-out UK national tour, ‘Here Come The Boys’, featuring four superstar Kings of Dance, a brand new supporting cast and a dazzling new production, is to transfer to the West End for a 16-week season at the Garrick Theatre from 27 January, 2021.
‘Here Come The Boys’ sees superstar Aljaž Škorjanec battling with Graziano di Prima (known as the Italian Stallion) and Pasha Kovalev and Robin Windsor to be named our ‘King of the Dance’.
Celebrity ‘Strictly’ finalist Karim Zeroual will host the show and also display his own incredible dance moves.
In a club setting, a live resident DJ will spin a cutting-edge soundtrack of dance-floor anthems, club classics and guilty pleasures as Aljaž, Graziano, Pasha and Robin go head-to-head in a battle of Latin, Ballroom, Commercial and Contemporary dance disciplines – with the audience judging the contest.
Capacity at the Garrick Theatre has been reduced to comply with COVID-19 Secure guidelines for social distancing plus robust risk mitigation. In addition to hand sanitation, face coverings and track and trace, other measures will include contactless tickets, temperature testing and the deep clean and sanitation of the theatre.
To keep ‘Here Come the Boys’ fresh and exciting there will be some incredible cast revelations, substitutions and additions throughout the 16-week season at the Garrick.
The lead quartet’s dance credentials are impeccable:
Aljaž Škorjanec is one of the UK’s most popular male professional dancers. A 19-time Slovenian champion in Ballroom, Latin and Ten Dance, Aljaž became an instant hit on his UK TV debut in 2013 when he partnered model and TV presenter Abbey Clancy to lift the coveted Glitterball Trophy. Having appeared in every series since, Aljaž and his partner, actress Gemma Atkinson, were runners-up in the 2017 final. Pasha Kovalev competed on the BBC show for for eight years. He was crowned champion when partnered with Caroline Flack in 2014. He was runner up with Ashley Roberts in 2018. Graziano Di Prima made his debut in 2018, partnered with Vick Hope. Robin Windsor famously partered Patsy Kensit, Anita Dobson, Lisa Riley and Deborah Meaden. He also co-starred in the West End in ‘Burn the Floor’ with Kristana Rihanoff. Karim Zeroual, a CBBC presenter since 2014, was the celebrity runner up in 2019, partnered with Welsh professional dancer Amy Dowden.
