coy with the details.

I was at the Upfronts announcing what is--
- --the beginning of my legacy.
Laurieann gets a project dance show--
extension of your legacy.
- --for girls just like you and me.

Hollywood's busiest men, Ryan Seacrest, who said that the
series gives audiences an insider's view of how
competitive the dance world is.
The dance scene will follow Laurieann Gibson as she trains
dancers and assistant choreographers on what it
takes to work with Hollywood stars.

-Hey, kitty, kitty.
We got it on.
NARRATOR: Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan made Critics'
Choice Movie Awards history this year, receiving a
record-breaking 12 nominations.
The Critics' Choice Movie Awards are bestowed by the
Broadcast Film Critics Association to honor the
finest in cinematic achievement, and Black Swan
hit the mark in 2010.
Once again, the Fox Searchlight film was nominated
for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director, and
its two leading ladies Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
But the Critics' Association also recognized Black Swan
with nominations in multiple technical categories,
including Art Direction, Costume Design, Editing,
Makeup, Sound, Cinematography, and Best Score.
The winners of the 16th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards
will be presented live January 14 on VH1.
Let's see how many Black Swan can rake in.
DanceOn told you about the Susan G. Komen Philadelphia
Affiliates' initiative to raise money through dance with
the help of the NFL alumni Philadelphia chapter.
Well, guess what?
It worked.
When a YouTube video that features over 130 former NFL
cheerleaders hit 1 million views, United Health Care of
Pennsylvania donated $100,000 to the Komen affiliate.
But don't stop watching the video yet.
United Health Care has upped the ante.
When "Team Ra-Ras Kicks Breast Cancer" gets 5 million views,
$50,000 will be donated.
And another $50,000 will be donated after 8 million views.
The video is nearing 2.5 million views, so
they need your help.
Spread the word and help Team Ra-Ras kick breast cancer.
January 16 marks the birth of dance legend Debbie Allen.

Ragtime, and was nominated for a Tony Award for the role of
Anita in the 1980 revival of West Side Story.
Allen also received a Golden Globe for her portrayal of
Lydia Grant in the television series Fame, and appeared in
the 2009 remake of the same name.
As a director, Debbie has gotten her hands dirty on the
sets of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Girlfriends, Grey's
Anatomy, Hellcats, and dozens of other hit series.
As a choreographer, she has won three Emmy Awards for best
choreography and earned 11 nominations.
Allen choreographed the Academy Awards 10 times, and
was the head choreographer of her famed TV series.
