Jenna Dewan is going back to where it all began. 

Long before the Hollywood beauty launched her acting career, Dewan-Tatum started out as a backup dancer and video vixen for music icons like Janet JacksonRicky Martin and Missy Elliot. She caught her big break in 2006, starring alongside now-husband Channing Tatum in the wildly popular dance flick, Step Up. 

Now a decade later, the 35-year-old mom is putting her skills to the test as the face of Danskin. The dance wear line's latest campaign features Dewan-Tatum at her most athletic in a number of extremely impressive action shots.

"This is definitely not a typical shoot; this is way more me," Jenna says in a promotional video. "I get to actually dance and move and feel free. I grew up wearing these leotards." 

And though she admits it's been a "very long time" since performing some of the moves captured in the campaign, Dewan-Tatum believes, "I like to say once a dancer, always a dance. In everything—the way you walk, the way you move is part of being a dancer."

She continues, "It's one of the positive side effects of dancing for 25 years. You're very in tune with your body."

Back in August, Jenna and Channing celebrated the tenth anniversary of the fan-favorite dance movie that initially brought them together by recreating one of their famous moves from the film. 

The duo danced all the way to the wedding alter three years after meeting on set, and in 2013, welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Everly

Of uniting her passion for dance with her professional and personal life, Jenna dishes, "This is a very cool, full circle moment for me in a lot of ways."
