They’ve been back on our screens as Strictly Come Dancing returned for the 17th year - and now they’re soon to be back live on stage at the Wycombe Swan, as professionals Karen Hauer and Gorka Marquez prepare to bring their fiery Latin spectacular to dance fans.

Firedance will see two Latin dancers from rival Houses meet at The Festival of Fire.

Full of passion, bravado and rhythm, when their eyes lock there is an instant connection.

Through a mix of Latin, commercial and contemporary dance, eclectic musical styles and hypnotic rhythms, we see a passionate affair unfold.

Having only completed a handful of shows on the original tour at the start of 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic struck, last year’s Strictly finalists, Karen and Gorka will be returning to the stage to turn up the heat with a host of new dates in spring 2022 - including an evening at the Wycombe Swan on March 9.

Karen said: “I am incredibly excited to be back on stage with Firedance next year. So much passion was poured into the show in early 2020, we performed seven totally electric shows before Covid stopped us in our tracks.

“Now we are coming back with a bang to stages across the UK heating up those winter months. With hypnotic beats, stunning choreography and our very own feisty Latin dance production - I cannot wait! See you in 2022.”

Born in Venezuela and having grown up in New York from the age of 10, Karen Hauer is the longest serving professional dancer on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Joining the series in 2012 she has been partnered with household names including Jeremy Vine, Mark Wright and comedian Chris Ramsey.

Karen and her partner Jamie Laing reached the 2020 series 18 final. Sadly she won’t be able to repeat the feat this year as her and The Crown actor Greg Wise were voted out last week.

Gorka’s flair for dancing started from a very young age - originally from Bilbao, Spain, aged 11 he attended ballroom and Latin dance classes where he quickly excelled and became one of the top dancers representing Spain across the world.

Best known for his appearance on Strictly, Gorka has continuously displayed outstanding talent and charisma since first gracing the Strictly dancefloor in 2016.

He has been partnered with Alexandra Burke, Katie Piper and reached the final of the 2020 season with Eastenders actress, Maisie Smith. For 2021, Gorka was partnered with Manchester-born actress Hollyoaks and Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn.
