Nigel Lythgoe Talks About the Celebration of Dance Gala


Nigel Lythgoe is hosting the third annual Celebration of Dance Gala, along with producer Adam Shankman, which benefits their non-profit Dizzy Feet Foundation in support of dance education across the country.

Nigel took a break from hanging out with pal Randy Jackson to phone in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about the upcoming event this weekend.

The producer explains that the event, which goes down on National Dance Day, will also consist of “great personalities like Christina Applegate, Paula Abdul, Minnie Driver, San Francisco Ballet, Los Angeles Ballet, LXD, [and] all the stars from So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars.”

And if you plan on attending the dance-filled event, keep in mind two dance moves Nigel thinks need to go away.

“The Monkey wasn’t much … and Russian folk dancing isn’t much.”
