“Strictly” star in charity Zumbathon

Posted on January 17, 2012


Zumba fans can join “Strictly”’s Matthew Cutler (pictured) dancing in aid of Cancer Research UK on February 5 at Oakley House, Bromley, Kent. 

The Zumbathon will mark World Cancer Day and Cancer Research UK’s tenth birthday. For £12, when you purchase your class online (or £15 on the day), you can join the two-hour Zumbathon, led by Matthew and Enrico Stey. 

Following the Zumbathon, there will be the opportunity to meet the “Strictly Come Dancing” dancer and have your photograph taken with him. 

Enrico Stey said: “Cancer Research UK is a charity that means so much to me as my mother is suffering from cancer, and also we both have friends who either directly or indirectly have been affected by this terrible illness. 

“The work and support Cancer Research UK is doing is second to none and we are so very happy we can help a little towards their cause; the war against cancer is a fight we must all support.” 

Matthew and Enrico are shortly to open their new Matico Dance Studio on February 13 in Croydon.  See for more information.
