About Latin Fever
Take an exhilarating journey into the colourful world of Latin American dance with sparkling stars Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova.
The dazzling partnership from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing will be joined by four top Latin American dancing duos and a nine-piece Latin Band for their breathtaking voyage, which takes them from the streets of Brazil to the bullrings of Spain by way of a vibrant mix of dance styles including the tango, rumba and cha-cha-cha.
An explosion of Brazilian rhythms at the Carnival in Rio begins the glamorous journey, before the audience is transported to the sultry clubs of Buenos Aires to be seduced by the passion and intensity of the tango. Cuba beckons with the cheeky cha-cha-cha and rumba, and then it’s time to boogie to the American dance halls of 1920s for the swing and jitterbug. The voyage continues in Spain where the passion, aggression and drama of the bullrings is brought to life in the glorious Paso Doblè.
