Katie Holmes to Appear on ‘So You Think You Can Dance’
Holmes won’t only be appearing, though, she’ll actually be dancing. Reports say that she has been rehearsing for a while with daughter Suri and Tom cheering her on.
The July 23 episode of “So You Think You Can Dance” is the show’s 100th and it’s also a tribute to the late, great Judy Garland, best known as Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz.” To pay homage on the dance show, Holmes will be moving along to the song “Get Happy,” which Garland sang in the film “Summer Stock.”
Besides being a fan of the actress, Holmes’ appearance is meant to promote a new organization she’s co-created called Dizzy Feet. It “aims to support dance education and programs, and talented dancers who can’t afford training” according to the Associated Press.
“I like to sing and dance, so this has been really fun,” Holmes told MTV. “I think it’s important to let kids experience music and dancing and singing and the arts and also sports. This is the next generation, and I think it’s important to give them every opportunity to grow and discover what it is that they like.”
Holmes’ last film was “Mad Money” which co-starred Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah. She also appeared on Broadway late late year in the Arthur Miller play “All My Sons.”
