From being a judge on Strictly Come Dancing to working with stars from film, TV and theatre, Arlene has become a household name which has seen her being honoured as a CBE for her services to dance and charity.

Arlene will join Scenic guests for a private “in Conversation with” Q&A evening in Budapest where guests will be given the opportunity to ask Arlene about her eventful 40-year career in dance, theatre, music, film and television

"I’m really excited to be joining Scenic guests on the Danube and answering all your questions about my life and 40-year career as a choreographer, director and TV judge – there are so many exciting stories to tell.” 


The accomplished dance act and married couple who found their fame on Strictly Come Dancing will be performing exclusively for Scenic guests on the 8-day Gems of the Danube cruise.

Performing at The Arsenal in Vienna in an evening of music and dance, hosted by Arlene Phillips, James & Ola will then host a dance masterclass on board the Scenic Amber showcasing dances such as the Cha-Cha, rumba, Samba, Jive and Paso doble.

"We’ve performed some incredible dances together but our showcase for Scenic guests in the heart of Vienna is going to be special, filled with passion, energy and beautiful costumes. We can’t wait to see you there!”
