Anton & Erin announce SHOWTIME live UK tour

Strictly Come Dancing's Anton DuBeke and Erin Boag return to the road in 2021.

Finding fame as professional dancers on the BBC’s celebrated Strictly Come Dancing, Anton DuBeke and Erin Boag are set to return to the stage in 2021 with their brand new SHOWTIME extravaganza.

The live show pays homage to all-time greats of entertainment, including Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Frank Sinatra and Julie Garland.

SHOWTIME promises stunning costumes, live vocals, a West End dance ensemble and a 23 piece orchestra, with Anton & Erin taking centre stage.

Watch Anton DuBeke and Erin Boag in action below:

Anton and Erin first met back in 1997, within a year making it into the International Dance Championships at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and winning the New Zealand Championships.

Turning professional in 2002, the pair were quickly snapped up by the BBC, starring in the first series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2004.

Since then, Anton DuBeke has appeared in every series, with Erin only stepping down ahead of the birth of her son. Anton’s celebrity partners have included Katie Derham, Laila Rouass, Patsy Palmer, Jan Ravens, and Jerry Hall, as well as unforgettable turns with Nancy Dell’Olio and Ann Widdecombe.

Erin Boag’s celebrity pairings have seen her dance with the likes of Rory Bremner, Julian Clary, Colin Jackson, Austin Healey and Ricky Groves.

Anton and Erin began to tour together in 2009 with their sold out Cheek To Cheek run. They’ve toured a different show every year since.

Their latest, SHOWTIME, kicks off in Northampton on Friday 22 January 2021 and includes three shows at London’s Barbican Centre.
