BBC ‘Strictly Come Dancing' star, Giovanni Pernice, who reached the finals of the hit show with his celebrity partner, Debbie McGee, has kicked off his UK and Ireland tour ‘BORN TO WIN’ to rave reviews and is raising the temperature and sending pulses soaring!

After the huge success of his debut tour ‘DANCE IS LIFE’ in 2017, Giovanni is extremely happy to be back out on the road with ‘BORN TO WIN’, in a show he says is “even bigger and even better!” And the audiences definitely seem to agree!

“WOW!!!! Best tour ever!!!” *

“My favourite Strictly professionals tour to date.” *

“Didn’t think it was possible to do a better show than last year, but you did…it was absolutely brilliant - would definitely go and see it again! *

‘BORN TO WIN’ tells the story of Giovanni’s life, from growing up in Sicily and learning to dance, to his time on the hit BBC TV show, and features the hot Paso Doble, the sexy Salsa, the gorgeous Viennese Waltz, and the passionate Rumba, to name just a few.

The show, headlined by Giovanni, sees the return of his leading lady, Luba Mushtuk - dancer and assistant choreographer on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, and ‘Dancing with Stars Ireland' professionals - Kai Widdrington, Giulia Dotta, Curtis Pritchard, and Emily Barker, who all starred in ‘DANCE IS LIFE’. They are joined by Stephen Vincent and Kylee Brown, who have both performed around the world in the phenomenal stage show ‘BURN THE FLOOR’.

Born to Win is a show that is guaranteed to get your feet tapping and pulses racing! Love Midlands Theatre review
