A TOUCH of New York dancefloor glamour takes to the stage at Fishguard's Theatr Gwaun this Saturday, May 19.

Silver Screen Ballroom, stars Lou Brockman and Heather Gehring; professional dancers who often grace the stage at from New York's Carnegie Hall as well as with Boardwalk Empire's Vince Giordano.

The couple will be on the stage at Theatr Gwaun thanks to an invitation from Fishguard musician, singer and bandleader, Tony Jacobs.

Tony came across Lou and Heather while he was singing at Vince Giordano's show in New York last January.

"They are phenomenal dancers and lovely people," said Tony.

"I thought 'why not bring them to Fishguard?' There is a Fishguard-New York connection and this is an opportunity not to be missed."

Tony will also perform a short set of Gershwin/Porter/Berlin at the beginning of the show with pianist Jim Barry.

Lou and Heather have gained accolades from Hollywood greats, with Liza Minnelli saying of them:

"I haven't seen dancing like this since my mother (Judy Garland) danced with Fred Astaire in the movies."

The couple will offer to share their magic in a dance workshop for young local dancers, aged 10-15 on Saturday afternoon.

This will run from 2pm until 3.30pm. Participants will have the chance to take part in a number in the Silver Screen Ballroom Show and front row tickets to the show are included in the £15 cost of the workshop.
