Renee: No? Can he dance? Do some backup dancing?

JLo: He wants to.

Renee: Really?

JLo: Yes, well, he always asks. Like today as I was leaving to go, you know, film the video. He’s like “are the dancers gonna be there?” He loves when we dance, he loves it when we get together and do our choreography.
