Physics Meets Core Strength

Katya Jones and Joe McFadden performed an Argentine Tango on Strictly Come Dancing last night, which closed with an amazing dance move – Katya (wearing heels!) sank slowly backwards to the floor, supporting Joe’s entire body weight mid-way, before levering him to his feet.  Impressive core strength.  I’m not sure if either of them does Pilates, but as a professional dancer it wouldn’t surprise me if Katya Jones does.  Her colleague and fellow professional dancer on Strictly, Karen Clifton definitely does Pilates.

Here’s the whole dance, or just skip to 01:30 when the show-stopping dance move starts…
