Pasha Kovalev’s will be spreading the love when he brings his touring show to Stevenage next week.
The Strictly Come Dancing star presents his new show, It’s All About You to the Gordon Craig Theatre on Friday April 15 and Saturday April 16.
Pasha said: “I was born to perform, love being on stage and the excitement of a live show is a wonderful feeling.
“It’s All About You has a lovely storyline as you will discover when you come to see it. It’s about love – we’ve all been in love; every single person falls in love at some time in their life.
“If people love Strictly, they will love this show as it has a similar styles of dancing in it. We’re bringing a singer along for the first time in one of my tours and it’s feel-good entertainment for the entire family.”
And while he is looking forward to taking on the tour, Pasha is hoping to return to the BBC series.
Pasha added: “We find out closer to springtime – usually the end of March or beginning of April – if we are going to be in that year’s Strictly. I would love to be asked back again because it’s a great show and I enjoy being in it.
“I really have only good things to say about the people I have been partnered with on the show and about the show, so I can see why it’s so popular all over the world.
“It’s all about seeing the celebrities develop from not being able to dance at all at the beginning and it’s very glamorous and beautiful.”
Pasha says he always tries to ensure the celebrity enjoy themselves when they appear.
He said: “Worrying is not my style in life or predicting what is going to happen. You have to deal with what’s in front of you.
“I have enjoyed dancing with every partner I’ve had in Strictly and creating the best possible dancer out of them, whether or not they reach the final; it’s the same story. It’s about improving and that’s the highlight for me.
“Carol (Kirkwood) is so down-to-earth and exactly what you see is what you get with her. She is always happy and thinking about about other people before herself. She is generous and hard working and, for me, it didn’t matter how far we got in the competition.”
And Pasha has a favourite dance of all.
He said: I am fond of Latin dancing because it is so energetic, powerful and dramatic. I love each dance though and how it each one has a different story and emotion behind it.”
Pasha will be dancing alongside another professional from Strictly Come Dancing, Anya Garnis.
