Week One: Cha Cha Cha

Tonight, after an amazing opening professional routine, Aliona and Gregg danced a wonderful Cha Cha Cha to Katy Perry’s hit Hot n Cold.

Craig: You were like a wind-up toy, very camp with the broken wrists and struts. I can only encourage you enthusiasm though and hope you get better. 3
Darcey: I weirdly liked that! There is something … okay. 5
Len: I’d have liked bigger portions. 5
Bruno: I don’t know how to describe this. I have to say it did leave a lingering sweet after taste and I can’t wait to see 5

TOTAL = 18/40

Give Hunger The Boot

Aliona is supporting Give Hunger The Boot


Give Hunger the Boot is our annual campaign where schools, churches and community groups across the UK don their wellies and take part in fun activities to raise funds for our work in eastern Africa, helping farmers Give Hunger the Boot, for good.


Whilst I absolutely adore wearing some of the beautiful shoes we get to perform in as a professional dancer, there’s something lovely about being able to have a day in casual wellies – just don’t ask me to do the foxtrot in them! This is such a fun and easy campaign to become involved in, and I’d urge everyone to ‘Give Hunger the Boot at Work’ by ditching their glamorous shoes for a pair of wellies for the day. That one thing could really make a real impact on the global problem of hunger, which kills more people than AIDS, TB and malaria combined.

Welcome back to Aliona Vilani Online

Just an update to all the visitors of Aliona Vilani Online. At various points throughout the past year we have been experiencing some significant server issues which have meant that the website has been unavailable for periods of time – this has been due to the hosts we have been using to provide this website. The website ended up being deleted (without warning) although we did manage to recover a very back dated version. Yesterday it appeared that the website had been deleted yet again.

However, we are in the very fortunate position of having new hosts! As we have lost all of our data (including our whole gallery archive), we are in the process of completely overhauling the website starting with our brand new layout.

We hope you will enjoy the ‘new’ site and will keep visiting for all the latest Aliona Vilani news!
