Nadiya and Kai - Once Upon A Time
Strictly Come Dancing stars Nadiya Bychkova and Kai Widdrington are touring the UK throughout Spring 2023 with their brand-new dance spectacular ‘One Upon A Time’.
On stage together for the first time, dance superstars Nadiya and Kai’s new dance show is a fairytale like no other, with the couple having created a stunning show that showcases their incredible ballroom journeys and shines a spotlight on their love affair with dance.
Their first ever tour will also celebrate Nadiya and Kai’s wonderful relationship on and off the dance floor. The couple will share with audiences across the country their inspirations and aspirations, whilst also telling the story of their remarkable journey from childhood dancers to ballroom and Latin champions - and, of course, becoming TV stars.
Ukrainian-Slovenian dance star Nadiya Bychkova is a two-time World Champion and European Champion in Ballroom and Latin ‘10’ Dance, who made her Strictly Come Dancing debut in 2017. Since then, her Strictly partners have included David James, Lee Ryan, Davood Ghadami, Dan Walker and Matt Goss.
Nadiya comments: “Kai and I are extremely excited to perform our brand-new show ‘Once Upon A Time’ to audiences all over the UK. We have both toured with some great shows in the past so now to headline our own tour together will be something special. We’re really looking forward to sharing this experience with our fans and giving them an insight into our love of ballroom.”
Kai Widdrington spent four years as professional dance on Dancing With The Stars in Ireland before becoming a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing in 2021. For his first season on Strictly, Kai was partnered with television presenter AJ Odudu, making it all the way to the coveted final, before an ankle injury forced AJ to pull out, on the day before.
Kai said, “To headline a show in the UK like ‘Once Upon A Time’ is a dream come true, and to do it alongside Nadiya will make it even more amazing. We believe we have assembled one of the best casts around to support us on tour so we cannot wait to get out there next Spring and entertain audiences across the country by giving them all a show to remember."
