We asked our Zalza stars, Flavia Cacace and Russell Grant what their favourite dance moment in films is from the nation’s top ten and they chose the ‘American Smooth’ from Top Hat.
Flavia commented saying:
'I have always loved dance having been inspired by the talents of so many wonderful dancers and actresses in film. Any dance I see that gets me excited, I have to try out, so Russell and I thought we’d show the nation, they can too!'
'I’ve lost 11-stone through dance and diet, and enjoyed doing it – having tried everything else! Zalza combines my love for Latin American movements and music with a fun workout. Despite men and women doubting their dance abilities, hopefully seeing me strut my stuff will show them that they can too.'
