Truth or Dare really changed my life,” Marshall confesses. “Even that young, I knew I was watching something different… it was about being free and expressing yourself. [Those dancers] were all-stars. I know most of them, and I respect them so much. I think they helped her be better on that tour. It wasn’t just about Madonna—it was the whole package.”

With the dancers reunited in the documentary Strike a Pose, we had to ask Yanis: Which one is his favorite?

“I love Slam—he knows it,” he confessed. “I fangirl about it. When I was little he was the one I wanted to be.”
