Former Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer Kristina Rihanoff has slammed ITV's Dance Dance Dance.

Dance Dance Dance is a brand new primetime entertainment series that celebrates the most iconic pop video and dance movie sequences of all time.


Celebrities, together with a dance partner of their choice, reimagine dance performances such as routines from Michael Jackson’s Bad and Madonna’s Vogue to Beyoncé’s Crazy in Love and Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time.

Each week the celebrities and their partners will perform and be marked by a panel of three expert judges: World famous choreographer, Tina Landon, dancer, choreographer and judge on Dance Dance Dance across Europe, Timor Steffens and dancer, choreographer and creator of BGT winning street dance crew, Diversity, Ashley Banjo.

However Strictly's Kristina isn't a fan.

“The show doesn’t have any flavour to it. It is copying someone else’s famous craft," she told The Sun newspaper.

The former pro dancer from the BBC One series continued: “Putting American judges on the team to me as well, they might be amazing choreographers but we don’t know who they are.

"There a lot of things they could have done better.”


And Kristina added: “I watched one episode of Dance Dance Dance and that was it. I didn't understand it.

“You actually want to see something exciting. That's why Strictly has longevity, you watch and you want your favourite one to get through to the next week.”
