THE Anvil will host a spectacular show from the Strictly family, featuring a whole host of famous faces.

The show called Strictly Presents: Keeep Dancing! will be at The Anvil on Thursday, June 23 and will feature a host of TV favourites who will share what it is to be a dancer using stunning choreography and beautiful storytelling.

This spectacular new show features Strictly 2020 finalist and EastEnders star Maisie Smith, together with Strictly 2021 semi-finalist and CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson.

They will be joined by the incredible Strictly professional dancers Neil Jones, Gorka Marquez, Jowita Przystal and Nancy Xu. And, as an extra special treat for Strictly fans, live music will be performed by The Wanted’s Max George, who competed in the 2020 series of the smash hit BBC One show.

Maisie Smith said: “I’m very excited to continue my Strictly journey once more, especially as this show will be very different from the arena tour. And to be giving audiences a unique glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at the Strictly TV show is a real treat.”

The celebrities who compete on the TV show are all very used to being in the limelight and come from many different worlds - acting, presenting, sport and singing - but nothing quite prepares them for entering the glittery Strictly bubble. Fans will hear some of their fascinating stories as they relive their amazing experiences on the show.

Rhys Stephenson added: “I have absolutely loved every moment of my Strictly experience so far, so I’m thrilled to be appearing in Strictly Presents. I can’t wait to dance again and give fans an insight into my dancing journey on the show.”

The Strictly professional dancers have become a fixture in living rooms on Saturday nights and residents love to watch how competitive they are. But the competition in the professional dancing world from which they herald is even fiercer. The Strictly Pros - all of them champions - will give a taste of their world.

Residents are invited to check out how it really feels to be in the dreaded dance off; just how long it takes to create the incredible dance routines - from the first day of learning the choreography, right through to the live show performance, and how the amazing ‘theme weeks’ are produced, as the celebrities and pros recreate some of their favourite moments from the movies, musicals and Halloween weeks.

Tickets are priced at £48, £42.50, £38 (includes £3 booking fee).
