Strictly Come Dancing and the Greatest Dancer reigning champion Oti Mabuse is going on tour for the first time next year.
Oti said: “It’s like a dream come true to be announcing my first ever tour.
“Performing on stage is something I feel so passionately about, and I can’t wait to get out on the road and share my story with you all.”
Oti won the last series of Strictly with former Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher.Her elder sister Motsi Mabuse is also a professional ballroom dancer and has participated in the German series Let’s Dance both as a professional dancer and as a judge. She joined the Strictly panel last year.
I am here, a direct translation of Oti’s name in the language Setswana spoken in South Africa, is a whirlwind celebration of the influences and inspirations that took her on a journey from growing up in South Africa to following her dream.
From jives and pumping sambas to South African traditional dances, this is an explosive night of dance and music that will set your heart racing.Oti will also be joined by some of the world’s greatest dancers and the West End’s finest singers and musicians, for what is promised to be a night of electrifying choreography and like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
