British ice dancers Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will be a part of the the festivities at the 30th anniversary of the 1984 Olympics in Sarajevo in February.

The Olympic champions will reprise their “Bolero” dance on Feb. 13 in their second trip back to the Bosnian capital, according to reports.

They won gold with the iconic dance on Valentine’s Day in 1984 and will skate at the same venue, which was destroyed during a mid-1990s war and rebuilt.

“We are very excited and humbled to have been invited by the mayors of Sarajevo to return to a place we have always held so close in our hearts,” Dean told the Press Association. “We went back there 10 years ago to reminisce, and the place was still rather war-torn, and we very much hope that our visit will help the city continue to regenerate and encourage optimism there again.”

Torvill and Dean have said this year will be the final year they perform “Bolero” on their celebrity show “Dancing on Ice” and its subsequent tour.
