Katie Holmes will put her dancing shoes on for an appearance on So You Think You Can Dance, and will donate her appearance fee to a new charity.
The actress will perform a song-and-dance homage to Judy Garland on the 100th episode of the show, to be broadcast on July 23. The performance will raise awareness of the Dizzy Feet Foundation, a new charity established by Holmes, Nigel Lythgoe, Carrie Ann Inaba and director/choreographer Adam Shankman. The foundation aims to support, improve and increase access to dance education. Supporters of the charity include Paula Abdul, Jennifer Lopez and Miley Cyrus.
“I like to sing and dance, so this has been really fun,” said Holmes. “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.”
