“Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodrigeuz added some sizzle to her shuffle in her answer to a summons set last week by the stars of fellow CW series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” In a just-released video, she is incorporating mambo and salsa moves into a “tap” dance routine.
The challenge was meant to bring awareness to nonprofit fundraising and grant-making organization Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, to which CW is donating for each video created.
It also offers a nifty promotional campaign, which interestingly had last week challenged only talent on CBS and CW shows. But all bets are off now that Rodriguez’s dance partner, choreographer Lyrik Cruz, has dared “Grey’s Anatomy’s” Debbie Allen to participate.
If nothing else, Rodriguez has certainly won the fashion challenge portion of this project. It’ll be fun to see if “Late Late Show” host James Corden, whom she’s dared to participate, can offer up such fancy footwear for his video.
“Jane the Virgin” returns for its second season Oct. 12 on CW.
