The Dizzy Feet Foundation presented its fifth annual “Celebration of Dance” Gala at Club Nokia over the weekend, an event that was attended by an impressive array of Hollywood’s favorite dance enthusiasts.

Magic Mike XXL stars Channing Tatum and Stephen ‘tWitch Boss” were among the attendees, as were Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Christina Applegate, Jenna Elfman, Paula Abdul, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Billie Lourde, Joely Fisher, Lance Bass, Elizabeth Berkely, Tara Lipinski, Allison Holker, Rosalyn Sanchez, Eric Winter and Ben Vereen. 

All said stars stepped out in support of DFF, a non-profit organization founded by Nigel Lythgoe (American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance) and director Adam Shankman (Hairspray, Rock of Ages), whose mission is to sponsor, fund and/or support access to and the quality of dance education programs that expose children in low-income areas to the lifelong benefits of dance education in the United States.

The evening was filled with exciting performances by Dewan Tatum with dancer and choreographer Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance); Elizabeth Berkley; Kim Eung Hwa Korean Dance and Performance Arts Academy; Body TrafficAcademy of Villains; Joffrey Ballet Dancers Fabrice Calmels and Victoria Jaiani; Cyrus “Glitch” Spencer and Sara “Lil Mini” Pheonix; and the Lulu Washington Dance Theatre and Dancer’s Inc. Additionally, there were special performances from DFF Community Program recipient San Pedro City Ballet and a piece created by Stacey Tookey especially for the evening and performed by DFF Scholarship recipients.

All proceeds from ticket sales benefited The Dizzy Feet Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is threefold: to sponsor, fund and/or support dance education programs that expose children in low-income areas to the lifelong benefits of dance education through and with local community organizations; to provide scholarships to talented students studying at accredited or nationally regarded dance schools, studios or institutions; and in conjunction with recognized credentialing organizations, to support and increase the quality of all styles of dance education in the United States.
