The Johannes Radebe: Freedom show will be performed at the Spa next year.

Johannes Radebe: Freedom will be staged on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, before touring the rest of the UK.

The show is a celebration of music and dance, from African fusion to fiery Latin, classic dance arrangements and huge party anthems, with a company of exciting dancers.

Johannes will take the audience on his personal journey, from growing up in South Africa, to travelling the world, winning titles and starring in Strictly Come Dancing.

Born in the township Zamdela Sasolburg, South Africa, Johannes Radebe started dancing when he was seven. He was always fascinated by the discipline and the glamour of Ballroom and Latin.

A spokesman said: “Johannes toured the world in the international dance show Burn The Floor before being headhunted by Strictly Come Dancing.

“He then moved to the UK to dance on the flagship BBC show.

“In his second series, he was partnered with Catherine Tyldesley and danced the first same-sex routine with fellow Strictly star Graziano Di Prima.

“In 2020, he danced with Caroline Quentin and reached week seven in a shorter BAFTA-nominated season.

“He will return to the ballroom for his fourth series in September.”
