The pair of professional dancers will partner up for their show, Him & Me!
A teaser shares: “Joined by a world class cast of dancers and singers, Anton and Giovanni are coming together to put on the show to end all shows – the ultimate entertaining night out! The Ballroom King and the Jive Master bring you HIM & ME! – a true dance extravaganza for all ages. ”
Him & Me! is produced by Strictly Theatre Co. and directed by West End star Alan Burkitt.
Dates start in June with the full schedule and tickets available now from www.antonandgiovanni.com.
Giovanni said of the show: “I had an idea that I would love to do a tour with my idol! I know Anton is such a busy man, so we have been back and forth for a couple of years. We finally got the dates to line up and we now get do the most phenomenal, beautiful and fun show touring around the country.”
“I can only agree, he says it so beautifully. I’m so fond of him,” Anton added.
Speaking about putting a tour together during a global pandemic, Anton continued: ” It’s actually still been fun as we have had a load of great zoom calls putting it all together. In ‘normal’ times, there isn’t actually much time, so we have taken our time to put it together.
“Alan, our director, has some brilliant ideas, and now the problem is ‘What do we leave out of the show?’ We cannot wait to get into the studio for rehearsals. ”
After a year and a half with no live theatre, the duo can’t wait to be back on a stage performing to their fans.
Giovanni said: “It will be amazing and special.”
Anton added: “Just being in the room for the auditions has been great, so much energy, and so much talent. The cast are all excited.”
