In Strictly Ballroom The Musical, they make it look so easy. But learning flamenco dancing is an incredible feat – as OfficialLondonTheatre.com’s Jim Glaub discovered when, as part of the recent Theatre Lounge Live episode, he picked up a few steps.
And under the skilled tutelage of Fernando Mira – who plays Rico in the hit musical – Jim was set well on his way, before enjoying a masterclass in the artform. You can see the clip below.
From the award winning director Baz Luhrmann comes Strictly Ballroom The Musical, based on the 1992 romantic comedy film that inspired the world to dance.
Starring the likes of Matt Cardle, Jonny Labey and Zizi Strallen, the feel-good new musical Strictly Ballroom will have you dancing in the aisles, and is a joyful celebration of dance and romance.
The show is playing until 27 October – don’t miss it!
