Galiano with Mark Kanemura on “SYTYCD” Season 4
Last year, “SYTYCD” All-Star Courtney Galiano received some sobering news: she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The autoimmune disease affects movement, sensation and bodily functions, and can eventually render you immobile. The spunky Galiano promises it won’t stop her from dancing, though, and she’s putting a positive spin on a scary situation. To raise awareness for the disease, she’s helping to organize Los Angeles’ first BEAT MS Dance Walk. Scheduled for September 22, 2013 at L.A.’s University High School, the event will feature upbeat music for dance walking, plus dance classes and performances. Cast members from past seasons have registered as Team SYTYCD, and Judge Adam Shankman has even stepped up as honorary chair of the event.
