Initial dates have been announced for an upcoming tour of hit Broadway musical On Your Feet!.

The show, which will have its UK premiere at Curve Leicester on 3 June before running at the Coliseum in London from 14 June to 31 August, is based on the music of 26-time Grammy Award nominated pair Gloria and Emilio Estefan. The Tony Award-nominated show was on Broadway for two years, playing for over 750 performances.

As part of the tour, the show will run at Sunderland Empire from 30 September to 5 October and at Manchester's Palace Theatre from 28 October to 2 November, with tickets for both venues on sale now.

More tour dates will be revealed soon, with locations including Plymouth, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff already announced.

On Your Feet! is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde), with choreography by Olivier Award-winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys) and book by Academy Award winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman). It features numbers including "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You", "Conga", "Get On Your Feet", "Don't Want To Lose You Now" and "1-2-3".
