New Angelina Ballerina PSA Featuring Larry King

Apparently, Larry King has some moves. Check out this PSA of King, Nigel Lythgoe (executive producer of So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol), and kids’ character Angelina Ballerina promoting the health benefits of dance.

Produced by Hit Entertainment and the Dizzy Feet Foundation, the PSA is part of the Dance 4 Your Life national health campaign launched by the Larry King Cardiac Foundation and the Dizzy Feet Foundation, aiming to get people dancing their way to a healthier lifestyle.

HIT Entertainment and Dizzy Feet Partner for Youth Dance Program

HIT Entertainment is collaborating with the Dizzy Feet Foundation (DFF) to expand its youth dance program nationally. The Angelina Ballerina Stars of Tomorrow campaign successfully ended its pilot program in the Bronx earlier this year, and the organizations plan to expand into at least three other cities’ Boys & Girls Clubs outside of New York this fall.

The partnership with DFF includes a dance scholarship–four to be awarded locally and one nationally–as well as access to DFF choreographers and special appearances by celebrity members of the Foundation.

Board members for DFF include Nigel Lythgoe, producer of So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol, and Katie Holmes, who will help guide the program as it develops. These members, as well as others on the DFF steering committee, will make public service announcements promoting the program, to be aired during the Angelina Ballerina The Next Steps television show on PBS KIDS.
