The Power of Dance

Never underestimate the power of dance, when the body, mind and spirit interconnect. That power can often ignite the flame of life-changing inspiration. Whether modern, jazz, ballet or tap, dance is a universal language.

Carrie Ann Inaba is a dancer, producer, philanthropist and pioneer. She was one of the first Asian-Americans to perform contemporary dance on television in the U.S. She’s been wowing audiences for nearly three decades. In addition, this award-winning TV host has choreographed and appeared in numerous feature films for the big screen too.

Best recognized as one of the judges on the hit Emmy Award-winning American TV series Dancing With The Stars, she takes her job, and the work of the contestants, to heart. She also supports the Andrea Rizzo Foundation, which uses the power of dance to help children with cancer and special needs.

Carrie Ann joins May Lee in the Los Angeles studio to discuss her life, career, giving back, and how the power of dance can heal.
