You probably know Channing Tatum as an actor, but he actually began his career as a dancer! Remember Ricky Martin's video "She Bangs?" (And yes, we know that's going to be stuck in your head all day now). His skills earned him the role of a featured dancer (read: sweaty bartender) throughout the vid. We won't judge you if you want to relive the glory that was the year 2000. We'll wait: She Bangs?
Channing’s big break was the unforgettable classic dance film "Step Up", where he plays a b-boy in love with a ballerina (cue Avril Lavigne’s “Skater Boy”). This is where we REALLY got to see young Tatum’s dance moves, and let’s just say...the boy definitely has skills.
This week, he proved that he still has the moves! Channing stepped in as co-host for Jimmy Kimmel this week, and he started out the show with a very memorable dance scene. From the dressing room to the stage, he showed us that his dancing days are not behind him. In fact, his moves were clear, crisp, and extremely entertaining. Who knew that after all this time Channing Tatum was still taking secret lessons…most likely from his beautiful wife Jenna Dewan Tatum! Who votes the two lovers reprise their original Step Up roles? 🙋
