BBC Strictly Come Dancing’s all-time favourite professional, Robin Windsor, who is
hanging up his dancing shoes after a long and successful career, has opened his
Farewell Tour to stupendous reviews!
Robin, who was part of the hit TV show for five years, and whose celebrity partners
included Patsy Kensit, Anita Dobson, Lisa Riley, and Deborah Meaden, wanted to
create a show that was not only action-packed and energetic to match his personality,
but also a very personal account of his life, narrated by Robin himself.
Windsor’s Farewell Tour takes audiences on a journey from when he was a little boy
first learning to dance, to his first successes in the dancing world and his time on
Strictly, mentions of boyfriends and funny encounters, with a hint of sadness and
emotion thrown in.
Robin says of the show – “For my last dance tour I wanted to create something for
the audiences that not only gave them great dancing and the ‘Strictly’ sparkle, but
also something real. I want them to have fun, but also get to know me a little bit
better and I think this show does that.”
Robin is supported by a cast of five other world class professional dancers, including
Anya Garnis, who reached the semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing with Patrick
Robinson in 2013.
Robin is no stranger to touring, having been involved in many shows over the years
including Burn the Floor, on Broadway and the West End, Puttin’ on the Ritz, Keep
Dancing, and most recently Dance to the Music, with former Strictly Come Dancing
professional Kristina Rihanoff.
Tickets are now on sale directly through the theatres or at www.robinwindsortour.com
There are also a limited number of VIP tickets available at most venues, where people
