Fans of the actress will be aware of her passion for dance. She has previously spoken about her passion for dance as a way to keep fit, telling The Telegraph: "I have a ballet barre in my gym.

"I turn the music up so loud that the walls are pulsating, and I go for it for an hour. I also hula-hoop, walk on the treadmill, do the elliptical [machine]. I try to keep the whole body working."

Catherine Zeta-Jones says she dances around in her star-print shoes

Dance is a great workout to take on as we head into our fifties and beyond. "Dance and dance-based workouts generally put less stress on the joints than activities such as HIIT," says Claire Burlison, founder of dance workout Clubbercise Fitness.

Celebrity trainer Monique Eastwood agrees that dancing is a fab workout for us as we age. "Dance encourages you to engage your brain and your body simultaneously and continuously," Monique says. "The multidirectional moves in dance are a great way to challenge the core muscles, as they are constantly being stimulated during the movement sequences."

"Dance also has a focus on different movement patterns, therefore your brain is having to constantly remember the moves and also focus on the coordination skills to do each movement correctly," adds Monique. "The nonstop movement in dance is a good cardio workout, with mostly lower impact movements that keep the whole-body moving safety while keeping it flexible and agile."
