GLITTER, sequins and a disco ball at Palmyra Square can only mean one thing…

Yep, you guessed it - the arrival of the Strictly Come Dancing: Keeeep Dancing tour in Warrington.

The tour gives the audience a chance to go behind the scenes with stunning choreography and storytelling from the hit show.

Along with the glitterball, a backdrop of the Strictly staircase and snippets of the theme tune helped to transport the Parr Hall audience to Elstree Studios on Tuesday night.

The only thing missing was the live band, but The Wanted singer Max George – who is also a former contestant – made up for this with live singing throughout the show.

Along with Max George was EastEnders star Maisie Smith and CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson.

They were joined by professionals Neil Jones, Cameron Lombard, Jowita Przystal and Nancy Xu.

Kicking the show off, the whole cast put on a performance to Should I Stay or Should I Go? followed by a dance to This is the Greatest Show which Max provided the vocals for.

This was followed by a re-enactment of the start of the Strictly journey – from the celebrities getting the call, to being partnered up to the first dance lesson.

Warrington Guardian:

There was even a nod to the Blackpool Ballroom, Movie Week and an exciting dance-off performance.

In between dances was mainly narrated by Max. Not only did he bring the vocals to the Warrington stage, he brought the laughter as well.

And he had the audience clapping and singing along to everyone’s favourites including My Girl by the Temptations, Your Song by Elton John and a funky version of Thriller by Michael Jackson.

A highlight of the show was Maisie Smith’s fiery performance of her famous week one Samba to Samba (Conga) which was even more impressive in real life.

And the multi-talented 21-year-old impressed the crowd further as she sang a duet with Max to Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.

Rhys’ jive to Elvis Presley's (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear had everyone clapping along and smiling thanks to his infectious energy.

On top of a mix of couple dances, singing and group dances – a nice touch throughout the show was how each cast member spoke about the importance of dance and the show to them.

The cast of just seven gave it an intimate feeling.

It was clear to see the largely-full audience felt involved in the show with cheers and applause throughout.

And it must be said, the cast certainly delivered on the famous Keeeep Dancing catchphrase as the audience chanted for ‘more’ after they left the stage.
