After Life Through Dance comes It’s All About You, the fifth touring stage show from Pasha Kovalev, the winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2014.

The show visits Theatre Royal Brighton on March 20.

Pasha is promising another evening of your favourite music, spectacular dancing, energy, lights and sparkling costumes.

“Every time, it gets sold out, and it’s great fun,” says Pasha. “I think what I love about going around the country is that I can see live the people who love Strictly, the people that love dance, and really the whole thing just charges you up. After being in front of a camera for so long, I love the fact that you can really see the people out there.

“I don’t think I thought about that when I did the first show. It was really more that we had the time and wanted to put something together. We thought it would be nice to do a show out of it all, and we had a lot of similar ideas. We love to address ourselves on camera on screen, but it is lovely to go out in front of a real live audience.”

Pasha continues: “Television has different rules, but you can be yourself more on stage. The stage show is my own choreography, my own interpretation of pieces, my own choices of costume.

“It’s the creativity that you miss when you are on television because there are lots of groups working tougher on the production to make it the best possible TV show, the people who look after the costumes or the hair or the whole concept of it.”

“And the show is definitely slowly evolving. At first it was like an evening with the stars of Strictly. There was lots of chatting going on. But now I am trying to make the show more about the story. This time I will have a singer. That will add extra spice to the show.

“I am trying to make the whole thing much more rounded so that even people that don’t know about dance will enjoy it.”

Tickets cost £23.90-£33.90. Call 0844 871 7650.
