Dance icon and “Grey’s Anatomy” producer, director and actress Debbie Allen is stopping by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”.
On Monday’s episode, Allen sits down with tWitch, who is filling in for the host, to speak about her new Debbie Allen Middle School.
“To have that safe haven,” Allen says of her dance academy.
Then speaking of the importance of her middle school, she adds, “It’s for these kids, this oasis for their cultural identity.”
Things then turn to how she took on becoming the executive producer of “Grey’s”.
“It was a blessing and great responsibility,” Allen says of working on the show, explaining that even before MeToo she was hiring 50 per cent female directors after knowing how she herself struggled to find work.
“I found women, Black men. I still hired some cute white boys, I didn’t leave them out,” she continues, laughing.
But it wouldn’t be an episode of “Ellen” without some dancing as the two pros play “Name That Dance”.
The hilarious game gets tWitch doing the floss and Allen tap dancing and performing “Da Butt”.
