Dancing with the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff hosted JCPenney’s New Year, New You Fitness Event in JCPenney’s SoHo showroom in NYC. Karina looked radiant and fit in JCPenney’s Xersion and CityStr
The event was fab and in addition to Karina, her fellow DWTS Dancer Henry Byalikov also brought his expertise to the floor teaching salsa and high octane routines to the excited participants. I had a chance to take his class and let me tell you there was a whole lotta hip jiving and twisting going on–and not all of it good–mostly I’m referring to me. Henry of course made everything look easy as pie.
Guests were then treated to fresh juices created by celebrity nutritionist and chef, Melissa Petitto. She was showcasing JCPenney’s national brand juicers to quench peoples’ thirst. JCPenney has trusted brands from Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer to the Magic Bullet Blender. Before I got my Vitamix (which is god-like) I had the Bullet and must say it treated me pretty well. While I love my Vitamix, which was a wedding present, these juicers and blenders fit a bit better into a family’s healthy lifestyle and budget.
When asked about Season 18 of DWTS Karina was tightlipped about details and mentioned that the announcements would still be a few weeks away. I haven’t heard anything yet so I am just as anxious and excited as everyone else! When asked who would be her ultimate dancing partner, dead or alive, she said, Michael Jackson. His talent and dancing was amazing and it would have been an honor and a treat to dance with him.
