J-Lo returns to her first love
Jennifer Lopez is co-host and executive producer of World Of Dance.
JENNIFER Lopez, who got her start as one of the whirling “fly girls” on In Living Color, returns to her first love as executive producer for the new show, World Of Dance.
The fierce competition engages dancers of all ages. And Lopez says, “I love dance at a core level, and I always consider myself a dancer kind of first, because I became a singer and an actress after I was a dancer,” she says.
“That was the first thing my mum put me in when I was five years old. That was my first form of artistic expression. And so, for me, it’s so part of who I am. That to watch it now, and to be able to see kids who are what, nine, 10, 11, 12 years old, and then to see people who have been doing it for so long and are a seasoned couple dancing together, it just reminded me of all of the reasons why I love dancing, why I wanted to do this in the first place ... I guarantee you, within the first half hour of the show, you are going to laugh, you are going to cry, and you are going to dance.” – Tribune News Service
