From a media release:
ZoomerMedia founder and ONETV Executive ProducerÂ Moses ZnaimerÂ has announced the premiere ofÂ Anjelicaâ€™s Dance Workout.Â The companyâ€™s newest original fitness seriesÂ will premiere during a Canada-wide month-long free preview of the ONE: GET FIT channel all April long.Â Anjelicaâ€™s Dance WorkoutÂ will airÂ daily at 8 am ET and 7 pm ET starting Monday, April 3.
StarringÂ Anjelica Scannura, Toronto-based dancer, actor, comedienne and co-artistic director of Ritmo Flamenco Dance and Music Ensemble,Â Anjelicaâ€™s Dance WorkoutÂ is a 30-minute exercise show that incorporates Flamenco, Bellydance, Brazilian, Irish, and contemporary world dance into anÂ 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,Â 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,Â Valerie Scannura, and local dancers Liane Dozois, Matt Eldracher, Theresa Gesualdi, Sherie Marshall, Ethel NaÃ±es, Damian Norman, Rachel James, and Shakeil Rollock.
Moses, whose only previous excursion into the exercise genre had been the sensationalÂ â€œ20-minute workoutâ€Â on Citytv, conceived Anjelicaâ€™s series after he booked her to lead the daily stretch breaks at his annualÂ ideacity conferenceÂ in 2015, and again in 2016. Anjelicaâ€™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 toÂ GET FITÂ and transform themselves into the best they can be.
