Billy Blanks Jr – Aself-taught working professional from his youth, Billy Blanks Jr. gained much exposure and experience in the world of dance and entertainment. As Billy’s prominence grew, he earned roles as a dancer in music videos with Paula Abdul, Madonna, Celine Dion, Crystal Method, Quincy Jones and Babyface. His credits include TV appearances on American Dreams with Alicia Keys, The Practice, Sister Sister, Kids Incorporated, Homeboys From Outer Space, My Cousin Skeeter, and The Tonight Show. Billy starred as Tyrone Jackson in the US and European tour of the Broadway musical Fame. He went on to direct and choreograph the WeSparkle Take II Celebrity Concert with Tom Hanks, Jason Alexander, Brian Cranston, Joey Lawrence, Britney Spears, Michael Chiklis, Hal Sparks, the cast of Will & Grace and more. He also choreographed the end sequence for the movie I Hope You Dance. Billy made his directorial debut in NYC at Madison Square Garden directing One Night With The Stars starring Broadway Legends Betty Buckley, Lainie Kazan, Telly Leung, Mandy Gonzalez, Constantine, Tom Bergeron, Jordin Sparks, Noah Galvin, Fran Drescher and more.
Over time, Billy became the face for the new generation of fitness with his revolutionary dance program, Dance It Out. He made history on Shark Tank after turning down a deal proposed by Mark Cuban and Daymond John when the latter shark left the tank and talked Billy into taking the deal. The result was his business Dance It Out® (DIO®) becoming the fastest growing fitness based dance program in America. Billy is the son of Tae Bo® creator Billy Blanks.
In October 2015, Billy launched the MoveTube Network where he produces and directs feel good workouts, motivational content and inspirational videos featuring today’s hottest dancers and celebrities. Billy is thrilled to launch his dream Moving Fitness Talk Show Dance It Out on Lifetime!
