Aliona Vilani | Dancer | Strictly Come Dancing Aliona Vilani

The Dancer / Choreographer

One of Strictly Come Dancing’s longest serving
and most successful professional dancers

Aliona first got into dancing at the age of just five, when she took up ballet in Kazakhstan. At the age of nine Aliona moved to Russia with her parents and started to learn ballroom dancing. But it was age 13 she really began to show her future star potential, when she was invited to America to join the infamous Kaiser Dance Academy in Brooklyn.

Just three years later she became a US National 10 Dance Winner and was part of a winning US Ballroom Team, after which she went on to become the youngest professional dancer ever in the US at the age of 17. Television was the next obvious step and Aliona went on to perform in the US arena tour and tv show Dancing With the Stars, before joining the Strictly Come Dancing line-up in 2009.

A year later Aliona was a runner-up with Matt Baker and two years later Aliona won the show with McBusted singer, Harry Judd, cementing her place as one of the shows top dancers. Her most recent success came at the end of 2014 when she won the Christmas Special with Olympic gymnast, Louis Smith.
