Text Box: Make sure you dance every day, just like Ellen does!

Make yourself Happy, by Making Others HAPPY!

Ellen DeGeneres, the host of the daytime Emmy award winning THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW/SYN/2003+ loves to dance. Although not a professional, when the mood and music strikes her, Ellen just gets down and boogies across the floor in her own inimitable style. And ever since she decided to make dancing a signature part of her show, Ellen fans can't get enough of her

"gotta dance" antics.  Even at the grocery store, fans yell

"Your'e not dancing!" to which Ellen replies, "That's because I'm shopping for groceries!"


In an interview with Stone Phillips on DATELINE NBC Ellen said, "Nobody dances anymore. Unless you're, you know, like 18 through your 20s and you go to clubs, you stop going out and you stop dancing. So these people come, and they're anywhere from 16 years old to 80 years old. And they're all dancing. And it feels good."


Ellen love of dancing extends to her viewing audience, as well. On her website, she posted this invitation:

"I want to see YOU dance! If you dance at home while I’m dancing in the studio, I want to see it. It’s like “What Are You Doing While You’re Watching?” meets “Show Us Your Moves,” and what could be better than that? Just send us a 1 minute VHS tape of you dancing with me to the address below." (The Ellen DeGeneres Show, PO BOX 7788, Burbank, CA 91523, Attn: Dance With Me)


Despite her hurting her back, Ellen's love for dancing doesn't seem to be fading. According to an interview in People Magazine (11/14/2005) Ellen predicts "When I'm 80, I'm going to be dancing with my walker going 'kah!' like a crazy person."
