Kloots is a professional dancer who hoofed it on the Broadway stage in Good Vibrations, Follies, Young Frankenstein, and Bullets Over Broadway. She is also a former Radio City Rockette. “I would think she would be amazing. Her Rockette legs are like up to my shoulders,” Inaba said to Hollywood Life.
