We took some takeaways down to the cast of Strictly Ballroom & stopped for a dance and a chat

Jonny Labey Strictly Ballroom

We popped down the road to the Piccadilly Theatre for a quick dance lesson and a chat with the cast of Strictly Ballroom. 

You can watch our interview Zizi Strallen here:

When Scott’s radical dance moves raise eyebrows with the Australian Federation, he finds himself dancing with Fran, a beginner who has no moves at all. Inspiring each other, the couple find the courage to defy both convention and their families – and discover that to be a winner, your steps don’t need to be strictly ballroom…

Adapted from Baz Luhrmann’s beloved and award-winning film, Strictly Ballroom has been transformed into a glorious stage musical. Combining the story’s heart, comedy and drama with white-hot dance, eye-popping costumes by four-time Oscar-winner Catherine Martin and over 40 classic chart hits including Time After Time, Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps and Love is in the Air, director and choreographer Drew McOnie has created an unforgettable production that will make your heart soar and your feet want to dance!

We also had a chat to Jonny Labey, which you can see here:

And after he put us through our paces with an onstage dance lesson, we talked to co-dance captain Dale White. Watch our interview here:
