Gayle busts a move in Tweetie's dance class.

4 of 5
Oprah's best friend, Gayle King, loves to dance—but she's stuck in a rut! "Ever since I've known her, she's been dancing the same way," Oprah says. "Her moves are stuck in junior high school."

To learn a new groove, Gayle enrolls in a hip-hop dance lesson at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City. "I've decided how I'd like to live my life is to be a decent dancer on the floor," she says. "I'm not even saying I have to be great, just decent."

Gayle's dance instructor is Tweetie, a choreographer who has worked with some of the best artists in hip-hop, including Jay-Z, Destiny's Child and Fergie. Soon Gayle is working up a sweat!

While she says she might have been the oldest person in the class, Gayle wasn't embarrassed at all. "I don't know how to do it, [but] I want to learn how to do it. So why should I feel humiliated because I want to learn something new?" she says.
