Kristina Rihanoff has shared an exclusive preview of her new show, One More Dance. The former Strictly Come Dancing star will be making a stage comeback later this month on the West End, where she will be joined by Gleb Savchenko.
Kristina, who gave birth to her daughter Mila five months ago, has given fans a glimpse of the routines they can expect to see.
Writing in her HELLO! Online blog this week, the new mum revealed: "It's been absolutely incredible to put on my dancing shoes again! It was very hard for several days because I basically haven't danced intensely for a year since Strictly. My core is not like it used to be, especially after pregnancy, but it's still very exciting.
"I'm thinking about the choreography, I'm feeling very creative, and it's so nice to be back with a group of dancers. That's what I really missed about Strictly – the professional dancers and working hard with them."
Kristina, who has been working with Gleb's wife Elena Samodanova and a choreographer from Russia, Alex Balash, added: "It's a big production and there's a certain pressure to deliver. We have one of the best venues on the West End – the Adelphi Theatre – right on the Strand, where all the theatre lovers go.
"What's really incredible about our show is that we have every single style of dancing – it's not just ballroom and Latin, like Strictly. We have hip hop, jazz, contemporary ballet, Argentine tango – you name it, we have it! That's why I really hope audiences will love it because it's something they'll have never seen before. There's so much variety and there are lots of surprises!"
