Jennifer Lopez Taught Kerry Washington How to Dance

There are benefits to living on the same block as "Jenny from the block."

It’s a small world, or the illuminati is at play.

On last night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the host and special guest Kerry Washington discussed her earlier pre-fame life in the Bronx. Washington said she’d been taking dance classes at the Boys and Girls Club of America in the Bronx for a long time, joking that she went “initially for the candy at the end of class.” She went on to say that her teacher “had an awesome substitute teacher named Jennifer, who would sometimes step in and teach but she left to move to L.A. and be on In Living Color.”

In amazement, Fallon asked if substitute teacher Jenny was “the Jenny from the block (Jennifer Lopez)?” Kerry excitedly replied “I learned to dance from J-Lo!” She jokingly adds, “that explains everything, that’s why I’m a really good dancer. It was like, meant to be that I would be famous.” Illuminati?
