Debbie Allen says Lara Spencer made lemonade out of her lemon of a joke about Prince George liking ballet … but now it’s time for everyone to grow up when it comes to guys dancing.
The dance legend was at LAX when we asked about Lara’s on-air apology for making fun of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s son … she applauds her for having the courage to own up to her mistake.
Debbie says the ordeal highlights a bigger issue — there should be no shame for men in the dance game. Allen wants folks to educate themselves and gives a great example of a legendary man who took dance to broaden his horizons and inspire creativity.
Debbie suggests, if it worked for that guy … we should all take note.
As for Spencer’s blunder, Allen’s not going to hold it against her … even if other big names in the dance community — notably Abby Lee Miller — are less forgiving.
Debbie says in this day and age, the better move is to have compassion and spread positivity … and believes Lara’s taken a step in that direction.
