Tour de force!

Ian Waite - Tuesday, March 16, 2010
HELLO!!!!!! Everyone!!!
It's been ages since we last spoke!!!  Hope you are not missing ‘Strictly’ too much? I am having a well needed rest after a very successful live arena tour. It was great to see so many familiar faces in the audience, supporting us from the sidelines and the reaction to the show was unbelievable - thank you to everybody for your lovely tweets and emails! 

By the end of the tour we had danced in front of nearly a quarter of a million people. I personally loved dancing the solo number with Natalie.  If you did not see the show we danced a romantic Waltz to 'Hallelujah' followed by a fiery Tango to 'Live and Let Die'. Natalie had a fairy tale dress with lights, which turned into a peach and black lace Paso dress. 

It was the third year that I have been involved in the tour and it just gets better and better. A big thank you has to go to Stage Entertainment and Phil Mcintyre Entertainment for looking after the performers so very well.

A couple of weeks teaching now... and then we start the Professionals UK theater tour (see all the dates here). I am very excited to be involved in the first ever Professional tour - it promises to be A-Ma-Zing!!!!

Hope to see you in the audience!

Much love,
Ian

I was lucky enough to see the Tour four times, and each time was magical, but, undoubtably, it was your Showdance that stole the show. You and Natalie are brilliant together and light up the floor with your dazzling dancing and your sheer air of 'joie de vivre'. I'm now really looking forward to the Pro Tour.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the show, the feeling was mutual from everyone in the audience. Although we are suffering terrible withdrawal symptoms! Don't worry though your angels are already booked into several of the Pro Tour events ready and willing to show you our support. Enjoy your break, but please keep your website updated with any shows that you and Natalie do, we love to have angel reunions!

I absolutely loved the Celeb Tour and especially your showdance with Natalie. You look like you were made to dance together and your enjoyment of the Tour came across to the audience. You were brilliant. I have my tickets to the Pro Tour and as your new 'Angel' am excited to be joining them all for the Tour in Southampton. Keep entertaining us! xx
