Edinburgh Playhouse will welcome the tour on May 18 for one day only with two shows at 2:30pm and 7:30pm.
Kicking off in Oxford on May 1, this year’s tour will be bigger and better than ever before as two more dancers have been added to the incredible line-up for the official 36-date tour. The list of dancers is noteworthy, with the Australian Open Champion and four-time Amateur Australian Open Finalist Dianne Buswell, as well as the 11-time Italian Latin American Champion and 2022 finalist Vito Coppola.
Italian Latin Champion Graziano Di Prima will also be there, along with the Chinese National Dance Champion and 2022 finalist Carlos Gu. Karen Hauer, who is the American Rhythm Rising Star Champion, Professional World Mambo Champion and longest-serving Strictly Pro will also be delighting audiences with here presence. Undefeated four-time British National Champion Neil Jones will also be joined by the six-time Italian Latin & Ballroom Champion Nikita Kuzmin, as well as the three-time Strictly finalist Gorka Marquez.
The list of celebs continues with the four-time winner of the Italian Dance Championship Luba Mushtuk, and the Polish Open Latin Champion and 2022 Strictly Champion Jowita Przystal.

Directed by Strictly’s Creative Director Jason Gilkison, the Strictly Come Dancing The Professionals UK Tour will showcase the talent of the immensely popular professional dancers from the TV show which celebrates its 21st series this year. Spectators can expect memorable dance numbers, extravagant costumes, sequins, sparkles and all the feel-good Strictly magic we’ve grown accustomed to over the years, all accompanied by a live soundtrack.
Jason Gilkison said: “The 2023 Tour was spectacular; we really pushed the boundaries with the choreography and as a result the show was phenomenal! We want to push that even further for 2024, with more dancers than ever before! Audiences will be blown away by the skills of our Pros, as individuals and as a breathtaking ensemble. The entertainment factor will be off the scale. I can’t wait, to see you in May!”
