About Strictly Ballroom

Strictly Ballroom is a new musical inspired by the classic Australian film from the award-winning Baz Luhrmann. The release of ‘Strictly Ballroom’ in 1992, ‘Romeo + Juliet’ in 1996, and finally ‘Moulin Rouge!’ in 2001 completed Luhrmann’s critically-acclaimed ‘Red Curtain Trilogy’.

Following the success of its UK Premiere at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2016, the magnificent story that inspired the world to dance runs at the Piccadilly Theatre from March 2018. The musical includes hits from the film like “Love Is In The Air”, “Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps” and “Time After Time” and electrifying songs from a host of internationally acclaimed artists.

This medley of colour and fun is witty and heartfelt and bound to leave you wanting more.

What's the story?

Strictly Ballroom tells the story of Scott, a championship ballroom dancer in 1980s Australia who defies the rules and finds himself aggravating ballroom-purists. He goes one step further than just making up dance steps in choosing left-footed partner Fran as his partner for the Pan Pacific competition. In following his heart he finds his true calling in dance and his true love.
