Janette Manrara and Aljaž Škorjanec will tour their new show Dancing In A Winter Wonderland around the UK in November and December 2023. The production follows on from last year’s sell-out debut festive spectacular A Christmas To Remember.
The new show will combine world-class choreography, costumes and sets with some of the most famous Christmas songs of all time.
Speaking about the tour, Janette Manrara said, “We are so happy to be touring again with a brand-new family Christmas show. The reaction to last year’s show was truly special, so we’re creating an even sparklier winter wonderland for everybody to enjoy. We can’t wait to share it with everybody!”
Aljaž Škorjanec added, “Janette and I can’t wait to tour the UK again with Dancing In A Winter Wonderland, so get ready to shake your baubles and celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with us on what promises to be a magical journey of festive song and dance.”
