Oh hi guys! Would you like an early holiday present? Because it looks like the Tatum family is about to give us one heck of an amazing dance gift.

Tatum as in Channing and Jenna Dewan, of course—the couple that's held fairly significant real estate in my heart ever since they Step Up-ed into it back in 2006. (2006!!) They're just so talented. And so pretty. And so...delightful.

Channing and Jenna are living proof that the couple that dances together, stays together. And on January 7, they're going to make all our Step Up-fueled fantasies come true when they do a "Tatum Takeover" of Spike's "Lip Sync Battle."

You know what that means: IT'S TATUM DANCE-OFF TIME.

In case you're wondering why I positioned this as an early holiday gift, given that the episode doesn't air until several days into the new year, feast your eyes upon the delicious promo below, which the dynamic duo blessed us with yesterday.

I spy Jenna getting her Magic Mike on. I spy Channing as Elsa from Frozen. (Oh, little Everly Tatum is gonna be one happy girl.) I spy host Chrissy Teigen responding to the showdown in the only appropriate fashion: by totally and completely losing it.

Enjoy, and set your DVRs for Thursday, January 7 at 10/9c!

From "Dance Moms" to Complexions: Ballerina Kaeli Ware's Unconventional Path to Success

Take one look at Kaeli Ware's Instagram page and you'll be captivated. The elegant, impossibly long-limbed ballet dancer has over 110 thousand followers hooked on her every polished move. But the 19-year-old phenom isn't just a social media sensation. Having already conquered the competition scene and the world of dance reality TV, Ware recently joined Complexions Contemporary Ballet as a trainee. These days, she splits her time between NYC and Philadelphia, PA, where she continues to beef up her classical training at The Rock School for Dance Education.

She's not a traditional bunhead, and she's not a run-of-the-mill social influencer, either. Instead, Ware is creating her own hybrid career path—and it's taking her to impressive places.

The Dance Power Couples of 2020

Given the endless hours dancers spend together in classes, rehearsals, and performances, it makes sense that onstage chemistry frequently leads to romance IRL.

Here are seven fabulous dance couples we'll be 'shipping into the years ahead.

Mandy Moore Puts Dance in the Spotlight in NBC's Newest Series, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist"

Imagine living in a real-life musical, where spontaneous song-and-dance breaks happen as often in the street as they do onstage. After a series of unusual events, every dancers' dream becomes an unexpected reality for computer coder Zoey Clarke (played by Jane Levy) in NBC's newest series, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist." Although at first her new powers catch Zoey off guard, when she learns to embrace them, she's able to connect with the world around her like never before.

And the best part? Every musical mashup puts incredible dancing front and center, thanks in large part to series choreographer and all around dance-for-the-screen extraordinaire, Mandy Moore. Dance Spirit chatted with Moore about choreographing for the dance-driven series, which returns to NBC with all-new episodes this Sunday, February 16 at 9/8c.
