The Ballroom Boys are back for Act Two


Strictly Come Dancing’s old-school professionals, Ian Waite and Vincent Simone, left fans intrigued when they first announced their unlikely partnership, but after the roaring success of their first tour together in 2019, the 5-star rated The Ballroom Boys are back with ACT TWO!

ACT TWO will follow on from Waite and Simone’s first offering as a dancing duo, with more old school variety of glamour, dance, comedy and song!

Reviewers have described it as ‘World-class’, ‘What a show!’ and ‘A hugely entertaining night out’.

Ian says of the new show “Myself and Vince joined up for the 2019 tour because we wanted to do something completely different to all the other Strictly tours. We never imagined that it would be so popular, the audiences loved it, which is amazing! So we thought, why not do it again?”

Having both been part of the hit BBC show for a number of years, with their partners including Zoe Ball, Penny Lancaster, Rachel Stevens, and Louisa Lytton, they have still been very much involved.

Ian was a regular on It Takes Two for ten years with his ‘Waite’s Warm-Up’ section until announcing in May 2021 that he would be stepping away from the role, and Vincent regularly choreographs the Argentine Tango routines that are seen on the main show.

The fabulous Strictly Come Dancing stars promise another wonderful evening, with beautiful costumes, gorgeous lighting and world-class routines. If you enjoyed The Ballroom Boys, then make sure you don’t miss the hilarious dancing duo when they bring you… ACT TWO!
