Pasha Kovalev is the reigning Strictly champion with Norfolk-born Caroline and will perform his Life Through Dance show at Cromer's Pier Pavilion Theatre, Lowestoft's Marina Theatre and Hunstanton's Princess Theatre in March, April and May.

Caroline, who grew up near Thetford, achieved record top marks from the Strictly judges in the final of the BBC One television show for all three of her dances with Pasha.

The Russian-born dancer said: 'With Caroline's personality and abilities I wouldn't be surprised if we saw her on the West End. She can sing, dance and is quite a good actress. It would be interesting to see her in a show like Chicago.

'Caroline said she would like to visit one of the shows in her neck of the woods.'

Pasha, who has appeared in Strictly for the past four years, said he learned a lot from Caroline and added they remained good friends after the show.

'Winning Strictly was an unreal experience. Up until the last second no-one knew what was going to happen this year because the contestants were so strong,' he said.

Pasha described Caroline as 'amazing' and said the pair wanted to 'create something special' each week of the show.

He said the television programme has educated people about dance and helped increase its popularity.

'People in this country love going to the theatre and watching shows. Strictly helped dancing come into the circle and there are now more dance shows on the West End.'

Life Through Dance will include a variety of dance styles, music and audience participation.

The Cromer show is on March 15 at 8pm; the Lowestoft show is on April 26 at 7.30pm; and the Hunstanton show is on May 28 at 7.30pm. To book tickets, call 01263 512495 for Cromer, 01502 533 200 for Lowestoft or 01485 532 252 for Hunstanton.
