Washington reveals which fellow Bronx girl taught her a few moves growing up.
Jenny From the Block once knew Kerry From the Block.
On a Friday night appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Kerry Washington revealed that Jennifer Lopez actually taught her a few dance moves back during their childhood days in the Bronx.
“I had this very inspiring teacher named Larry Maldonado. For anybody from my neighborhood in the Bronx, he was our role model,” said Washington. “He had an awesome substitute teacher named Jennifer who would sometimes step in and teach but then she left to move to L.A. and be on In Living Color.”
It didn’t take long for the host to put this one together. Washington added, “I learned to dance from J. Lo!”
