It’s slightly more theatrical as well as having a different line up of talent, with five male dancers and three female which will allow the choreography to be exciting and different. With bigger and better lifts, some very strong theatrical numbers as well as a new look set, this promises to be something special. I’m very excited about putting this one together.”
