After a sell-out 2018 UK tour, Strictly star, Giovanni Pernice returns to The Albany with IL BALLO É VITA – DANCE IS LIFE with his leading lady, Luba Mushtuk.
This smash-hit dance spectacular is set in a Sicillian caffé and Giovanni thinks he has found love! But, not everything is as easy as it first appears... Get set for some seriously hot dance, searing passion and a scorching story.
DANCE IS LIFE is a stylish and beautiful show exuding effortless charm with all the elegance and passion of Italy that pays homage to some all-time favourite dances - Quickstep, Samba, Rhumba, Paso Doblé, Argentine Tango and of course, Giovanni’s signature dance, the Jive.
Joined by a stellar cast of professional dancers, Giovanni is at his fantastic, high-energy, high-quality best. Directed and choreographed by Jason Gilkison (Creative Director of Strictly Come Dancing), DANCE IS LIFE is a sure-fire evening of electric dance and guaranteed entertainment.
