Laurieann Gibson is well known in the dance world for her tough-love tactics and snappy catch phrases, including the audible "Boom-Kack!" she uses to punctuate her choreography. She entered the realm of reality TV in a supporting role to P. Diddy, whipping would-be pop stars into shape on Making the Band, and eventually launched her own mix of dance and behind-the-scenes drama with The Dance Scene.

But with Born to Dance, she makes far better use of her considerable talents as a teacher and her palpable desire to mentor young girls who seem to remind her a lot of herself.
