Skyline dancer tryouts, Gabrielle Union has some fun

Want to be famous? You may not get to see your name in lights, but your body, maybe.

The InterContinental Miami is holding another dance-off at the downtown hotel (100 Chopin Plaza) from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday to find a new set of lithe figurines to jazz up Miami’s skyline.

VH1 personality Jane Castro will be on hand again this year to assist in the judging, as well as current winner Jay Marcos, whose silhouette can be seen nightly busting a move on the building’s 19-story digital canvas.

For the open casting call, all types of dancing styles are encouraged for participants (18 and older). Organizers will provide music, but bring some of your own in case you make it to the finals, from 1-3 p.m.

Besides the awesome cred of getting to appear on the side of a skyscraper, the winners receive a free staycation package.



Gabrielle Union went all glam on us Tuesday night for her hubby Dwyane Wade’s annual charity benefiting his Wade’s World Foundation, A Night on the Runwade, at Ice Palace Studios downtown. In a long black dress/pantsuit, the Being Mary Jane star wore her hair ’40s style, with a slight curl, and — despite her acting pedigree — was able to rock quite the serious-model face. Before the event, though, she couldn’t help herself but joke on Instagram that she was doing an armpit sniff test while getting ready. Other pics showed the fun-loving couple, who later hammed it up on the runway, getting dressed in their humungous bathroom together.


The Falls is seeing some celebrity action. The open-air mall in Kendall is hosting its annual “Miracle on 136th Street” holiday parade at 4 p.m. Saturday to ring in the holiday season with a special guest: This year’s grand marshal is Peyton List, who plays Emma on The Disney Channel’s nanny comedy Jessie.

Early bird fans: The first 100 people to visit the American Girl store at 11 a.m. will have a chance to meet the 16-year-old actress and receive an autographed photo.
