Somnium: A Dancer’s Dream, the explosive dance show starring World Latin Showdance Champions and Strictly professionals Neil and Katya Jones is set to arrive at Sadler’s Wells in London for three dates only in June 2019.
Directed and choreographed by Neil Jones, Somnium: A Dancer’s Dream tells the story of a boy from Britain and a girl from Russia who met, fell in love and overcame the odds to become dance stars.
Starring real life couple Neil and Katya Jones and a company of dancers, the show features vivid storytelling and sensational Latin and ballroom choreography to produce a dance show like no other. It also depicts a complicated modern love story, exploring how the path of love doesn’t always run smoothly. Somnium was originally created for Lichfield Festival and has been re-worked for this London run.
Born on a British Army camp in Germany, Neil is a creative and innovative choreographer as well as dancer. Katya was born in St Petersburg, Russia and started dancing at the age of 6. In 2008 she formed a partnership with Neil and they went on to marry in 2013 before becoming World Champions.
Neil and Katya said: “We are really excited to announce that we will be performing our show SOMNIUM: A Dancer’s Dream at Sadler’s Wells in June 2019. We all know that life and love is not perfect and as much we would like to say our journey together has been, you will be able to see first hand the real struggles of our life together on the road to becoming World Champions.”
