An Evening with Kevin and Joanne Clifton
The Strictly siblings announce a new show
Kevin and Joanne Clifton are the brother and sister duo best known from the hit BBC series Strictly Come Dancing.
Born to former World No.1 and four-time British Latin American champions Keith and Judy Clifton, the pair were introduced to the world of dance from a very young age. Raised in the village of Waltham, Kevin ultimately specialised in fiery Latin dancing, while Joanne focussed on ballroom. Over the years, they’ve racked up an array of titles and awards – both separately and together – from professional dance competitions held in the UK and all around the world.
Kevin joined Strictly in 2013 and appeared in the finals every year apart from 2017 and 2019, nabbing the prestigious Glitterball trophy with TV presenter Stacey Dooley in 2018. Joanne joined Strictly in 2014 and snagged a Glitterball herself with TV presenter Ore Oduba in 2016. Joanne remained with the series until 2017, leaving to pursue musical theatre projects, with Kevin also departing in March 2020.
Having both performed with Burn The Floor on tours of Australia and Japan in 2014, the siblings were slated to come together for the first time while headlining the acclaimed dance company’s 2020 UK tour, which was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. In August 2020, Kevin was announced as the headliner for Burn The Floor’s 2021 UK tour, albeit without his sister, who had prior commitments.
In early September 2020, the talented twosome revealed they’d be appearing together in late 2020 and early 2021 in An Evening With Kevin & Joanne Clifton, an intimate show – produced especially for a socially distanced audience – of song, dance, stories and memories.
See the brother and sister duo in An Evening With Kevin & Joanne Clifton, which heads across the UK in late 2020 and early 2021. This will be your only chance to catch the siblings on tour together. In spring 2021, Kevin will headline the popular Burn The Floor touring dance show.
An Evening With Kevin & Joanne Clifton stops at venues all across the UK until 28 February 2021.
During its run, the show will also visit:
- Kings Lynn
- St Helens
Kevin and Joanne Clifton will give audiences a glimpse into their dancing lives, from young children to the successful performers they are today. They’ll sing songs, share stories and perform some favourite ballroom and Latin dances with their professional partners.
