Larry King: devoted Lindy Hopper

Larry King, the former host of CNN’s “Larry King Live,” once tried to learn some dance moves from Janet Jackson on his show. Needless to say, this didn’t go very well – he wasn’t exactly up for her urban/sexy brand of choreography! But right at the end of the segment, Janet grabbed him for a little old-fashioned ballroom twirl, and the result was…lovely.

Turns out Larry is a huge Lindy Hop aficionado, and as a survivor of heart disease, his Larry King Cardiac Foundation is throwing its support behind National Dance Day and other initiatives to get America moving through dance. Read about Larry’s aspirations as a song and dance man in my interview with him in today’s Los Angeles Times!
