Quote of the Day: Katie Holmes

February 2, 2009

In case you haven’t heard, Katie Holmes is starring on Broadway in All My Sons. Here’s a quote about her dance career from a recent article written by Solve Sundsbo in T magazine. I hope you find it as inspiriing as I did!


T magazine: When did you start performing?

Kate Holmes: I was always watching “Vogue” by Madonna and Janet Jackson’s videos, and I decided I wanted to dance. I was 13, which is kind of old to start. But I threw myself into it: I started dancing four times a week. I’m the kind of person who, when I decide to do something, it kind of takes over. I competed in all-girl dance competitions. We did medleys from shows like “Grease.” But I never joined the drama club at my high school. I was too shy. But I was fascinated by movies and television, and there was something in me that said, Don’t get distracted or get down on yourself—just try it.
