JLo dances on Uruguayan beachDecember 9th, 2011 - 12:11 pm ICT by IANS
Montevideo, Dec 9 (IANS/EFE) Singer Jennifer Lopez practiced a bit of “capoeira” - a type of Brazilian martial arts dancing with African roots - Thursday on the Montevideo beach along with a group of dancers who are participating in her television talent search programme.
Lopez, who in recent days was in Peru and Chile to tape other segments of the TV show, came to the Ingleses beach at midday where a stage had been set up using wooden planks laid out on the sand.
The artist, who sported sunglasses and wore her hair up, jeans and a red sleeveless T-shirt, took her shoes off as soon as she got out of her van to watch the dancers perform.
Later, after directing a few words to a television camera, she approached the group and tried her luck at doing a bit of capoeira herself.
Dozens of curious onlookers and photographers followed the action from a short distance away, kept back by the security cordon set up by the singer’s team.
Lopez is on a tour through the region seeking new talent - singers, dancers, musicians and artists - with an eye toward putting them on “¡Q’Viva! The Chosen”.
JLo is producing the programme with her ex-husband, salsa star Marc Anthony.
