Jenna Dewan returns to her dancing roots following her split from Channing Tatum
Jenna Dewan is a woman who's meant to fly high, and not even an upcoming divorce can bring the talented dancer down. The actress put up her first YouTube post on Monday since she separated from her husband of eight years, Channing Tatum.
The video, titled "A Little Dance," shows Dewan getting visibly emotional as she danced along the beach barefoot and in a white lace dress.
"Inspired by this cove, this song, and voila! Love love love xx," Dewan wrote.
As most people would know, the 37-year-old started out her career as a back-up dancer for celebrity artists like Janet Jackson, Pink and Christina Aguilera. She then got her big break with Step Up, where she met ex husband Tatum.
The actress is currently coping with the sudden separation but is grateful for her fans and followers for having her back. "Thank you guys for all your love," she wrote. "Love you right back."
Aside from finding her inner peace in the dance studio, the actress has been surrounding herself with friends and family since the split. According to a source at E! News, the actress recently drove out to Santa Barbara, in a bid to escape the paparazzi looming over her the whole time.
"She was surrounded by family and had a quiet weekend there. It's close enough that she can get out of L.A. easily and spend time with people she is close to."
Although Dewan has let go of her wedding ring ever since she announced her split, Tatum still seems to be clinging on to his. The couple has been under a lot of pressure recently, with the duo having to fight back a lot of negative rumors with regards to their sudden separation.
