TWO of Strictly Come Dancing’s stars are to waltz their way into Dunfermline this month with a tribute to Fred Astaire.
From the producer of Darcey Bussell’s & Katherine Jenkins’ Viva La Diva, ‘Remembering Fred’ is an exciting new show starring Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara.
The show will feature song and dance and celebrate the legacy of one of Hollywood’s true screen legends and entertainers.
Aljaz and Janette will be performing the golden age of Hollywood’s most celebrated dance routines and audiences will also hear famous Fred ‘fans’, such as Darcey Bussell, Ava Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Gene Kelly, Irving Berlin, Twiggy, Don Black and Bruce Oldfield, among others, talk about how the screen icon touched their lives and what made him so special.
It’s a glamorous evening of top hat, white tie and wonderful tales.
Backed by a full supporting cast of dancers, live band and singers, Aljaz and Janette will perform classics from the American Songbook, written by the likes of George & Ira Gershwin, Irving Berling and Cole Porter.
Aljaz & Janette commented: “Fred Astaire is an inspiration to every dancer we know. We are excited to be headlining a show paying tribute to this unique Hollywood legend.
"We will celebrate his dance, his choreography, his most memorable songs and films, as well as his poise and elegance and what made this man such an icon of the 20th century.
"And, just like Fred, we will be doing it big, doing it right and doing it with style!”
The 50-date tour began last month, and will make its way to Dunfermline on Tuesday, May 23.
Doors open at 7pm with the show getting under way at 7.30pm.
