Tango experts, Strictly Come Dancing favourites, former World Champions, West End stage stars and dance partners for over two decades, Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace are set to bring their dazzling style and theatrical flair to Bath in Tango Moderno. Appearing at the Theatre Royal from Monday 29th January to Saturday 3rd February, Vincent and Flavia’s latest production combines their mesmerising choreography and fiery chemistry as they command the floor with dynamic dance routines, gravity-defying moves and feather-light footwork.
Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace are one of the most successful Ballroom, Latin American and Argentine Tango performers and choreographers in the UK. Their many professional titles include UK Ballroom champions for several years; UK Professional Ten Dance champions 2002-2006; UK Professional Show Dance champions 2003-2006; champions of the first-ever UK Argentine Tango Championship in 2006; World Argentine Tango Show champions 2005/2006; and World and European Ten Dance and Show Dance finalists 2002-2006.
After competing successfully together for many years, 2006 saw Vincent and Flavia move away from competitions as they joined the BBC’s hugely popular primetime show, Strictly Come Dancing, from the fourth series onwards, winning a legion of fans over the seven series in which they took part. In 2008 and 2009, Vincent and Flavia starred in the Strictly Come Dancing live tour and, at the beginning of 2010, Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals UK tour. In 2012, Vincent reached the finals of Strictly Come Dancing performing with Dani Harmer, whilst Flavia and Louis Smith won the series and took home the much-prized glitter ball.
For the past five years they have wowed audiences with three incredibly successful stage shows of their own, receiving two Olivier Award nominations in 2012 and 2015 in the Best Entertainment and Family category. They have not only starred in, but they also co-choreographed the hit productions, Midnight Tango, Dance ’til Dawn and The Last Tango, which toured nationwide and ran in the West End.
Now making a welcome return to Bath after their 2013 visit with Midnight Tango – one of the best-selling shows in Theatre Royal history – Vincent and Flavia are back with their latest, fast-paced show featuring live on-stage music, ten truly fantastic dancers and top class West End singers.
With an incredible soundtrack packed with classic hits, Tango Moderno fuses together Ballroom, Latin and Argentine Tango for the ultimate Tango experience, full of life, energy and colour.
Tango Moderno is directed by Olivier Award-winning choreographer and director Karen Bruce, who has choreographed for both Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance on BBC1. Her theatre credits include Pacific Overtures at the Donmar Warehouse, Footloose and Fame in the West End and on UK Tour. Karen recently created the acclaimed choreography for the Take That musical, Never Forget in the West End and on UK tour. The show is produced by Adam Spiegel Productions (Motown The Musical, The Producers, Dance ’Til Dawn, Midnight Tango, Love Me Tender).
