The drama and sensuality of late-night Buenos Aires will arrive at the Royal & Derngate next week when two Strictly Come Dancing stars perform in Northampton.

Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace have dazzled television audiences with their tango routines for seven series of the BBC show and are currently touring with their own Midnight Tango production.

The Olivier Award-nominated live show promises a breathtaking evening as Vincent and Flavia command the floor with mesmerising choreography and fiery chemistry, explosive dances, gravity-defying lifts and feather-light footwork.

Set in a late-night bar in downtown Buenos Aires, and featuring some of the finest tango dancers in the world, Midnight Tango takes a journey into the heart of the city. Danger and excitement, joy and jealousy, pain and passion combine in a heady cocktail of dance, accompanied by music from the internationally-renowned band, Tango Siempre.

Dancing partners since their teens, Vincent and Flavia have won a host of titles, including UK Argentine Tango Champions, UK Professional Showdance Champions (three times) and the World Argentine Tango Show Champions (two years running).

Vincent reached the finals of the last series of Strictly with Dani Harmer, while Flavia and gymnast Louis Smith won the competition and lifted the glitterball trophy.

Midnight Tango is at Royal & Derngate from Monday, July 8 to Saturday, July 13, with performances at 7.30pm and matinees at 2.30pm on Thursday and Saturday. Tickets cost £15.50-£32.50. Call 01604 624811.
