Dance with Vincent and Flavia app update and Android launch

Posted on June 24, 2014

vfStrictly stars Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace have updated and launched their very popular and successful Dance with Vincent and Flavia app into the Android market. The app is now available free to download from Apple’s iTunes Appstore for both iPhone and iPad and now from the Android marketplace, Google Play.

What’s more, a featured partnership with Dance Today allows users to explore the latest dance news, reviews and competition giveaways.

Flavia said: “We’ve had excellent feedback from the launch of the app, so we wanted to take it to the next stage. We really wanted all dance lovers to be able to use this app, not just those who have an iPhone.

“With this launch into the Android market we hope to unite many more people in their love of dance. We really want to encourage people to have a go themselves, share our love for dancing and learn exciting dances for all occasions.”

Vincent added: “Teaming with Dance Today magazine means users can keep up-to-date with everything dance – what’s better than that?”

ICN’s CEO Geoff Baker said: “The update and launch within Android is the next in a series of planned updates to further develop the Dance with Vincent and Flavia app. The core app is free to download, and includes demonstrations of the basic cha cha cha figures, behind-the-scenes footage of the acclaimed partnership, the new free ‘track your progress’ section that allows users to add journal entries, videos and share this through Facebook and a series of discounts with selected partners covering all things dancing exclusively available to app users.”

Users can then download advanced cha cha cha video instructions together with basic and advanced upgrades for the foxtrot/quickstep, the waltz, the jive, the salsa and, of course, the couple’s signature dance, the tango. Each upgrade is available for £0.69.

Nicola Rayner was editor of Dance Today from 2010 to 2015. She has written for a number of publications including The Guardian, The Independent and Time Out Buenos Aires, where she cut her teeth as a dance journalist working on the tango section. Now acting editor of Discover Britain magazine, she continues to dance everything from ballroom to breakdance, with varying degrees of success.
