Strictly stars setting the Fife stage on fire!
Pairing together professionally for the first time, Strictly Come Dancing’s Gorka Marquez and Karen Hauer are sure to set temperatures soaring when they bring their new Latin spectacular to Fife.
Firedance will begin a tour of the UK in March and will make a stop at the Alhambra Theatre in Dunfermline on the 28th.
You can expect the usual sequins and feather boas which the hit TV show is famous for to make way for hot pulsing beats, seductive choreography and passionate performances.
With an incredible live band featuring Latin musicians and a dynamic dance ensemble performing Argentine Tango, Flamenco, Contemporary, Paso Doble, Samba and Salsa, audiences can expect an amazing show of fresh and exciting dance from two of the world’s finest.
Karen said: “I am beyond excited to be going on tour with a brand new show alongside Gorka.
“We have been working very hard to put on a show that will leave everyone feeling all the passion, excitement and energy that we feel when we are dancing. We can’t wait to travel around the UK and to meet you all.”
Born in Venezuela and having grown up in New York from the age of ten, Karen joined the series in 2012 she has been partnered with household names including Westlife’s Nicky Byrne, The ‘Hairy Biker’ Dave Myers, Mark Wright, Jeremy Vine, Will Young, and Sunday Brunch chef Simon Rimmer.
In 2018 Karen reached the quarter-finals of the series with actor Charles Venn.
Able to express emotion through each and every movement, Karen takes choreographed routines to new heights and she has that rare talent to attract the eye of every audience member whenever she dances.
Gorka’s flair for dancing started from a very young age.
Originally from Bilbao, Spain, he quickly excelled and became one of the top dancers representing Spain across the world and has continuously displayed outstanding talent and charisma in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 series of Strictly.
He said: “I can’t wait to get out on the road with Karen for this very exciting new tour. We are both really passionate about Latin dance, and this tour will really showcase that.”
