Dancing With The Pros 2: The Demise Of Yuri Ka

Being a celebrity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Professional dancer Yuri Ka was thrust into worldwide popularity with his 2005 instructional video ‘Dancing With The Pros’. Trying to capitalise on this success, his new management team unleashed ‘Fighting With The Pros’ a year later which was met with far less enthusiasm and Yuri was vanished from the celebrity realm. The next five years saw Yuri knee deep in personal struggles – none less publicised than the pressure to keep his much adored plump figure. Unfortunately with media hounding him day and night, Yuri succumb to the rumours and lost weight, which of course was fuel to the rumour’s fire. More than 5 years after the original and with all these issues on his shoulders, Yuri Ka embarks on the sequel for redemption.
