Former Strictly and X Factor stars to appear in hit stage show at Preston Guild Hall
KRISTINA Rihanoff and Christopher Maloney are to team up in a new smash hit
dance show that promises to transport audiences on a musical journey through time.
The pair became close pals during their time in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ – and now
they are to appear together in a nationwide tour of glittering stage show ‘Dance to
The new production will showcase every genre of dance, from the roaring twenties to
the present day, with plenty of sequins and surprises along the way! The production
is the creation of professional dancer and choreographer Kristina, who spent eight
years on hit BBC show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
Kristina, who became a parent with partner Ben Cohen in 2016, said: “Dance To The
Music is a totally new show with some breath-taking dance routines that I hope the
audience will love.
“Chris and I have kept in touch ever since we left the Big Brother house and I’m
really excited about working with him. As every fan of The X Factor will know, Chris
has got a fantastic singing voice, and I’m very lucky to be joined by him.
“It’s a dance production like no other because it includes everything from tap and the
Charleston, right through to modern Latin and Ballroom. There’s even Break-
Dancing and Hip-Hop!”
In addition to Christopher’s vocals, Kristina will once again be paired with her former
professional dance partner Robin Windsor, who himself starred on ‘Strictly’ for four
years. Also gracing the stage will be Oksana Platero, who partnered Judge Rinder
on Series 14 of the BBC show, becoming famous for her jaw-dropping lifts! Oksana’s
husband Jonathan is also in the cast, as is top singer-songwriter Beth Sherburn.
‘Dance to the Music’ will be touring with 38 dates across the UK, throughout January
and February of 2018. Christopher, a former finalist on ‘The X Factor’, said: “I’m
looking forward to having a great time in such an exciting show! Hopefully I’ll get to
do to the odd bit of cha cha cha myself, as well as singing my heart out!”
