Currently a judge on Dancing On Ice, Mabuse will give more than 50 performances at venues around the country including in Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre on May 8.

The show is said to celebrate her journey from her home of South Africa to becoming professional dancer.

She previously spent seven years as a professional dancer on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing, before announcing her departure from the show earlier this month.

I Am Here is a “whirlwind” celebration of her inspirations and influences and includes jives, sambas, and traditional South African dances.
