Cris Judd Reflects On Dance Beginnings

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Everyone knows that Cris Judd danced his way into Jennifer Lopez’s heart, but now he’s finally revealing where he perfected his moves – Chippendales.

Judd says he was “always the wallflower at the youth center dances,” and didn’t even attempt to dance until age 21.

After his friends taught him some moves, Judd says his fancy footwork led him to a European tour with Chippendales. He jokes, “I still have the bowtie!”

But let’s get one thing straight: Judd says he was “NOT a stripper,” but “one of six dancers hired to make the other guys look good.”

He says the tour was a great professional experience, adding, “Our show had a really good production value. It was like a musical.”

Judd can now be seen dancing – with all his clothes on – in a new fitness/dance DVD called Dance Like We Do with fellow choreographer Eddie Garcia and says the best part are the outtakes which show him repeatedly trying to say the word “professional.”

Asked if that word was in reference to himself, Judd laughs and replies, “Yes, it was.”
