AFTER making his directorial and choreographic debut at Sadler’s Wells, London, in 2019, BBC Strictly Come Dancing professional, Neil Jones will be touring the UK for the very first time in 2021, with his brand new show - GINGERLAND!

Away from the Strictly dance floor, Neil will demonstrate the real reason he has 45 Ballroom and Latin Championship titles to his name including three-time World and eight-time British Champion.

Originally due to tour in June and July 2020, the production has been rescheduled due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic.

Jones said of the postponement “I'm sorry to announce that Gingerland is being postponed, but I think we can all agree that everyone's health is more important and the show will still go on, just now it is happening March - April 2021. Until then, let's be strong and stay at home.”

He says of the show: “Being ginger myself, with this show I wanted to create a kind of tribute to gingers.

"There will be a lot of dancing, obviously, but I want to combine it with comedy and music. I’ve also been researching celebrities through the years that were ginger and I’m going to incorporate them into the show.

"It’s going to be a very light-hearted, fun show for everyone, whether you are ginger or you know a ginger, everyone will be able to relate to it.”

It has recently been announced that he will return to the show for series 18 and he is excited to help a new celebrity experience the joy of dance.
