A film that follows two of Strictly’s most popular professional stars, Karen Hauer and Gorka Marquez, as they put together a spectacular Latin showcase for their fans.
Supercharged by BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing, due to start its 17th series in September, the exuberant Latin styles of salsa, Argentine tango and paso doble are taking off in ballroom dancing classes around Britain. This film follows two of Strictly’s most popular stars, Karen Hauer and Gorka Marquez, as they put together a spectacular Latin showcase called Firedance for their fans.
The sell-out show started touring regional theatres in the UK in March 2020 and joyously celebrates dance as pure entertainment. Tracking the rehearsal process and the early days of the tour, the film explores how Karen and Gorka express their emotion and physicality through every movement of their fiery routine.
