Banijay confirmed that Zeppelin, part of Banijay Iberia, will launch the original talent show "Dance If You Can," which will air on La 1. The show, created by Zeppelin and produced in collaboration with RTVE, will be hosted by Anne Igartiburu.

"Dance if You Can" will be part of Banijay's BAFTA London TV Screenings event. It follows sixteen accomplished professionals showcasing their skills as versatile dancers and choreographers. Forming couples, they will instruct eight celebrities without dance experience in all types of dance disciplines, such as contemporary, house, jazz, and more. For ten weeks, the professional dancers will fully immerse themselves in the competition, living together at the "Dance If You Can Academy."

Miguel Martín, Managing Director of Zeppelin, expressed: "Building on Zeppelin's experience and success as creators of reality, competition, and entertainment programs like 'The Bridge' and 'TimeZone,' 'Dance if you can' is a fun and original series never seen before on television, that represents an authentic evolution in dance programs. It is an entertainment blockbuster in which, every week, the contestants coexist and compete. We have turned the focus: those who take the risk, the real contestants, are the professional dancers, and subsequently, we will see celebrities as we have never seen them," said

James Townley, Chief Content Officer, Development at Banijay, praised Zeppelin's work: "Zeppelin is renowned for genre-defining entertainment, and this latest format is no different. Bringing this new and original show to market demonstrates the continued strength of our IP pipeline, and I'm looking forward to sharing the format with our teams around the world," highlighted.
