Vincent Simone and Ksenia Zsikhotska

Vincent Simone and Ksenia Zsikhotska

Italian Vincent was destined to become a dancer - both his parents are professional ballroom and latin teachers.

When Vincent became the Italian Youth Championship he knew he would have to move from his home in Southern Italy if he was going to be able to progress in the dancing world, so he moved to the UK and met his professional dance partner Flavia Cacace when they were both taking lessons with the same teacher.

They turned professional in 2001 and were the UK Ten Dance Champions for five consecutive years from 2002 to 2006.

Vincent first became involved in Strictly when he was asked to choreograph a group dance in the third series, leading to the opportunity to compete in series four onwards, along with Flavia.

Ksenia is a Ukrainian dancer and choreographer. She is best known for her role as a professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars. She, alongside professional partner, Ryan McShane, were the 2016 United Kingdom & British Latin Professional Champions & British Show Dance Champions.

Apart from appearing on Dancing with the Stars, Ksenia has toured with Strictly Come Dancing professional Brendan Cole's A Night to Remember across the UK and Ireland and has appeared on Sky One’s dance competition show, Got to Dance and Britain's Got Talent where she helped to establish the ballroom dance group, Kings & Queens, alongside Strictly Come Dancing professionals, Katya Jones and Neil Jones.

Ksenia is currently appearing with Vincent Simone and Ian Waite in the popular, The Ballroom Boys, An Evening of Dance, Song, and Banter!

Vincent and Ksenia love to run dance workshops and also relish the opportunity to appear in their own cabaret shows featuring not only their fantastic dancing but also giving audiences the opportunity to participate in a lively and often hilarious Q and A session.
