I AM HERE (a direct translation of Oti’s name in the language Setswana, spoken in South Africa) is a whirlwind celebration of the influences and inspirations that took her on a journey from growing up in South Africa to following her dream. From mesmerising Jives and pumping Sambas to South African traditional dances, this is an explosive night of dance and music that will set your heart racing. Oti will also be joined by some of the world’s greatest dancers and the West End’s finest singers and musicians, for what is promised to be a night of electrifying choreography and like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
Oti says, “It’s like a dream come true to be announcing my first ever tour! Performing on stage is something I feel so passionately about, and I can’t wait to get out on the road and share my story with you all”
Eight-time South African Latin American Champion, Oti is regarded as one of the most successful South African dancers in the world, regularly choreographing critically acclaimed musicals and is now a sought-after presenter and judge on UK television.
As well the incredibly successful ‘Home Festival’ that Oti has been busy curating with fellow Strictly pro Karen Hauer over the last couple of months - bringing some much needed joy and dancing to living rooms across globe during lockdown, Oti was also recently announced as the new presenter for hit CBeebies show Boogie Beebies.
