Combining world-class choreography, fabulous costumes and amazing sets with the greatest hits of Christmas, Strictly’s most celebrated couple will once again be joined by a supporting cast featuring some of the UK’s top dancers and singers as they countdown to Christmas Day.
Janette said, “We are so happy to be touring again with a new family Christmas show. The reaction to last year’s show was truly special, so we’re creating an even sparklier winter wonderland for everybody to enjoy. We can’t wait to share it with everybody!”
Aljaž said, “Janette and I can’t wait to tour the UK again with Dancing In A Winter Wonderland, so get ready to shake your baubles and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with us on what promises to be a magical journey of festive song and dance.”
