Katie as Judy?
So, what did you think of Katie Holmes version of Get Happy on So You Think You Can Dance?
Whatever you may think of the performance, and I thought it a bit thin; I have to give her and the other SYTYCD team: Nigel Lythgoe, Adam Shankman, & Carrie Anne Inaba (Dancing With the Stars judge & former SYTYCD contestant) props for forming the Dizzy Feet Foundation.
The foundation's purpose is to provide support and improve access to dance education in the US. I can only hope that the Canadian version of the show does something similar when it airs next month.
I love dance because it transcends both language and gravity. It celebrates the human form and reflects its soul. Arts funding cuts have robbed our children of the ability to dance, to sing, to paint and to interpret through art, their voice and their place in the world.
