THEATRE bosses in South Tyneside are looking forward to welcoming the newly-crowned Strictly Come Dancing champion.

Professional dancer Pasha Kovalev – who lifted the Glitterball trophy with former Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack at the weekend – is set to show off his winning moves at the Customs House, South Shields.

The night – Pasha Kovalev: Life Through Dance – will be his third visit to the venue in Mill Dam, South Shields, and he will showcase his fantastic dancing skills and stunning choreography.

Customs House executive director Ray Spencer said: “We’re delighted to welcome Pasha back to the Customs House as reigning champion of Strictly.

“He’s always had a winning formula, having sold out on his two previous visits and I’m sure this year will be no different.”

Pasha has made the finals of the BBC One dance show twice before with Girls Aloud’s Kimberley Walsh and Waterloo Road star Chelsee Healey but it was third-time lucky for the Russian dance star, and he and Caroline made Strictly history, receiving perfect scores for every dance.

Customs House marketing, programming and events co-ordinator, Sally Hoban, added: “In this amazing new show starring Pasha and his sensational dancers, the audience will be transported into the world of ballroom and Latin dance with all its glitter and sequins.

“Life Through Dance will feature breathtaking choreography, sensational music and amazing costumes.

“It will be a fun and exciting adventure for the entire family – there will even be the opportunity to participate and experience live on stage the favourite dance styles as seen on TV.

“Grab your tickets to see this strictly fantastic show before they all waltz off.”

Pasha Kovalev – Life Through Dance is on Sunday, April 12 at 7.45pm.

Tickets are £25 and £24 for Friends of the Customs House and are available from the box office on 454 1234 or via www.customshouse.co.uk
