Before the sequins and sparkles of BBC Strictly Come Dancing, Sicily’s very own Billy Elliot grew up working in the vineyards with his father. He hoped and believed that one day, dancing would be his career.

Believe – My Life on Stage is a journey from the vineyards of Sicily to the bright lights of Strictly. Set to some of his favourite music including hits from Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Shakira, Ed Sheeran, Lewis Capaldi and more!

Believe – My Life on Stage Graziano’s own story, danced in his own inimitable way. The highs and lows of an aspiring artist. A dreamer. A dancer with a passion almost as big as his talent. It’s the story of a young man who dared to believe that he was destined for more.

“I’m so thrilled that I will be touring the UK with my own show – Believe!” says Graziano. “This isn’t just for that little Sicilian boy, but everyone who grew up and dared to Believe that one day all their dreams could come true.

“Believe is a new dance show about my childhood in Italy, and the young man who came to the UK. It’s a show about the passion and energy of Latin and Ballroom and how it changed my life.”
