Don’t miss your chance to watch the exciting former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ duo Kristina Rihanoff and Tristan MacManus, come together for an intoxicating, yet intimate show full of breathtaking routines and fantastic music at the Riverside Theatre, Coleraine.

Kristina says of the show, “I am so happy that I finally get to work with Tristan on tour! It’s been a long time coming.”

Not only will you get to see the popular couple perform some of your favourite ballroom and Latin dances including the Waltz, the Tango, the Samba, and the Rumba, but you will also get added entertainment from the show’s host and singer, Mark Read, of successful

boyband A1.

“I’m so excited about the tour. I can’t wait to get my dancing shoes back on and get started!” says Tristan.

Both Kristina and Tristan started out on ‘Dancing with the Stars USA’, before moving to the UK to appear on the BBC’s comparable ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. They have also starred in the popular dance spectacular ‘Burn the Floor’, with Kristina appearing in the

West End version, while Tristan performed in the Australian touring equivalent. Tristan was also former dance captain on the ‘Dirty Dancing’ European tour, later going on to star in it on the West End.

Mark Read’s achievements in his field are just as impressive. After clocking up hit after hit with A1, Mark has gone on to perform in musical ‘Guys and Dolls’, as well as writing music for the ‘Harry Potter’ soundtrack.

In ‘An Evening with...’ you will experience the beauty of Kristina and Tristan performing dances to Mark’s delightful voice, with songs like ‘It Had To Be You’, ’Don’t Stop Me Now’, and ‘What A Wonderful World’.

They will also answer questions from the audience and share some stories about life on the BBC hit show....and watch out, you may want to dust off your dancing shoes once they get you on your feet!

Both Tristan and Kristina are thrilled to be able to take the show to Tristan’s home country, Ireland. “I love Ireland and I’m so fond of Irish people, we always get such a special, warm welcome when we go there”, says Kristina.

Kristina and Tristan dance into the Riverside on November 9. www.ulster.ac.uk/riverside for tickets.
