Strictly Come Dancing star Johannes Radebe is returning to York with a brand new show – celebrating culture, passion and freedom.
Johannes Radebe: Freedom Unleashed is at the Grand Opera House York on Wednesday 19 April 2023.
In the show, Johannes and the diverse, world-class cast of talented dancers and singers will be performing to a mix of African rhythms and huge party anthems with a touch of ballroom magic.
Alongside Johannes, the cast is made up of Oliver Adam-Reynolds, Lila Eccles, Lowri Evans, Demmileigh Foster, Jared Irving, Luke Jarvis, Shayna McPherson, Duane-Lamonte O Garro, Joshian Angelo Omana, Barnaby Quarendon and Zinzile Tshuma.
Completing the company will be South African singer-songwriter and former contestant of The Voice South Africa, Ramelo.
Born in the township Zamdela Sasolburg, South Africa, Johannes Radebe started dancing when he was seven. Over the next 13 years, Johannes competed in local competitions as well as internationally.
In 2018, he was invited to join the debut season of the international hit show, Dancing With The Stars, in South Africa. Johannes toured the world in the international dance show Burn The Floor before being headhunted by Strictly Come Dancing.
Since joining the show, he has been the professional partner to Catherine Tyldesley, Caroline Quentin, John Whaite – and made history by being the first all-male partnership to compete on the show – and mostly recently, comedian and actress Ellie Taylor.
