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.
However, Windsor feels that now is the right time to concentrate on other things, “I have been offered an amazing opportunity to live and work in St Lucia, giving dance lessons on the beach…what could be better??!!”
THE ALL FUN FAREWELL TOUR takes the popular dancer across the country, 29 shows over five weeks, and Robin says it is “full of fun, cheeky chat, plenty of sparkles, and superb dancing!”
Tickets are now on sale directly through the theatres or at www.robinwindsortour.com
