Everyone loves to boogie, even Katie Holmes! She loved it so much that she created her own dance scholarship fund to help aspiring dancers reach their dreams. She did this alongside Nigel Lythgoe, Adam Shankman, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
The foundation is called the Dizzy Feet Foundation. Now, young dancers who are awarded this scholarship can boogie until their feet ache.
Dreams Coming True
Sure, Katie is special, but she's not THAT special — she had a childhood dream of marrying Tom Cruise, just like the rest of us. Who didn’t have a childhood dream to marry Tom Cruise when they were little? He was the hunk from “Top Gun,” and everyone and their mother wanted him.
We were a little more than hot and bothered after that volleyball scene with Goose, and if he had put a ring on us, we would have been in heaven, too. So maybe living this dream does make her THAT special.
All good things take time, but four years? Well, that’s how long it took Katie to get her first fashion line to New York Fashion Week.
She started her high fashion clothing line, Holmes & Yang, with longtime stylist Jeanne Yang all the way back in 2008, but the pair didn’t have anything ready until 2012. The line was well received, so we guess it was worth the wait.
Scared of Scientology
Katie left Scientology after her split with Tom Cruise in 2012. However, that didn’t mean Scientology was done with her. Katie has openly admitted she feared intimidation by the Church of Scientology for leaving and had reason to fear they would try to abduct her daughter Suri.
Luckily, they didn’t attempt the latter, but it made her rethink ever joining in the first place.
Still Active on TV
While “Dawson’s Creek” ended in 2003, that did not mean Katie Holmes was done with television. The actress didn’t want to ride off into the sunset with her role on “Dawson’s Creek,” and the trajectory she took far exceeded our expectations.
She has been quite active in the medium and has had numerous roles in shows like “The Kennedys,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “Ray Donovan.”
