Strictly’s Champion Siblings To Battle It Out In New Show…
Strictly Come Dancing’s champion siblings, KEVIN CLIFTON and JOANNE CLIFTON are set to do battle when they head out on tour together for the very first time, with a date at Sunderland Empire, one night only, 29 April 2020.
Kevin, who is the reigning Strictly Champion, has just completed a sell-out, 5 star rated UK tour with the international dance company Burn the Floor, and he is ready to step up his game and do it all again when his sister Joanne joins the cast for the 2020 tour!
Hailing from a successful dancing family - parents Judy and Keith are former World Champions - the Clifton siblings have numerous competitive Ballroom and Latin dance accolades between them, including World Champion, British Champion, European Champion, and International Open titles. They have both also won the highly sought after glitter ball trophy on the hit BBC show Strictly Come Dancing - Kevin in 2018 with journalist Stacey Dooley, and Joanne in 2016 with TV presenter Ore Oduba.
Having both performed around the world with Burn the Floor, and after the success of the show’s first ever UK tour, the famous siblings will get to play on their individual achievements in an ‘Anything You Can Do…’ inspired theme. And what better to way than in the world’s leading Ballroom show!
In the past two decades Burn the Floor has revolutionised Ballroom style. Combining jaw-dropping choreography and ground-breaking moves, Burn the Floor brings their famous, infectious and rebellious energy to the stage, and this time it will be headlined by STRICTLY COME DANCING CHAMPIONS Kevin Clifton and Joanne Clifton.
From seriously romantic Waltz, to a futuristic Foxtrot, the passion of the Tango and Paso Doble cut right through. You will revel in the emotional power of the Cha Cha, the Samba and Jive, and be left breathless by the smoking, irresistible Rumba.
With Kevin and Joanne headlining this electrifying production, along with lights, costumes and eclectic live music, it will have you leaping out of the seat to join in. Not just a “feel-good” performance, we are seriously a “feel-fantastic” show! Don’t miss your chance to experience the pure dance joy of Burn the Floor.
KEVIN CLIFTON said:
“Burn The Floor is the show that ignited a spark in me and changed me forever as a performer. Through Broadway, West End and touring all over the world this show has ripped apart the rule book, revolutionised our genre and inspired and shaped me as the dancer I am today. In 2019 I returned ‘home’ to Burn The Floor, and I am delighted to say that, in 2020, my sister Joanne will be joining me.”
JOANNE CLIFTON said:
"I’m not competitive or anything, but being a World Champion, I have a natural nose for the win, especially against my brother Kev. He’s always done everything first – he was born first, started dancing first, got on Strictly first, joined the amazing Burn the Floor first…oh wait, but I won the Strictly glitter ball first, didn’t I? Burn the Floor? More like Scorch the Earth. Come and see the show if you want to see who the REAL Clifton Champion is! Anything he can do, I can definitely do better!"
