From a media release:
ZoomerMedia founder and ONETV Executive Producer Moses Znaimer has announced the premiere of Anjelica’s Dance Workout. The company’s newest original fitness series will premiere during a Canada-wide month-long free preview of the ONE: GET FIT channel all April long. Anjelica’s Dance Workout will air daily at 8 am ET and 7 pm ET starting Monday, April 3.
Starring Anjelica Scannura, Toronto-based dancer, actor, comedienne and co-artistic director of Ritmo Flamenco Dance and Music Ensemble, Anjelica’s Dance Workout is a 30-minute exercise show that incorporates Flamenco, Bellydance, Brazilian, Irish, and contemporary world dance into an easy-to-follow and fun cardio routine for all ages, shapes, and sizes. Each episode is designed and target a specific muscle group, and of course, always the abs!
Viewers can follow along with the exotic and colourfully costumed Anjelica and her dancers as she takes them through a warm-up, the how-to basics of a particular dance technique, the workout, and cool down.
Anjelica is accompanied by special guests including her mother and co-artistic director of Ritmo Flamenco, Valerie Scannura, and local dancers Liane Dozois, Matt Eldracher, Theresa Gesualdi, Sherie Marshall, Ethel Nañes, Damian Norman, Rachel James, and Shakeil Rollock.
Moses, whose only previous excursion into the exercise genre had been the sensational “20-minute workout” on Citytv, conceived Anjelica’s series after he booked her to lead the daily stretch breaks at his annual ideacity conference in 2015, and again in 2016. Anjelica’s dance moves, combined with her natural ability to engage and entertain the audience, led him to cast her as the star of a new fitness series for ONETV, whose programming inspires viewers to GET FIT and transform themselves into the best they can be.
