She got her start in show business as a dancer.

Dance Queen! Charlize Theron was full of grace when she left a dance studio in LA on Thursday

She wore a black face mask, yellow mirrored sunglasses and white sandals as she swept her blonde locks out of her face and into a ponytail.

Charlize was trained in ballet and attended the Joffrey Ballet School in New York after moving to the US as a teenager to pursue modeling.

But her dancing career was cut short when she suffered a knee injury.

Talking about her experience in the Big Apple with the New York Times in 2008 she said, “I went to New York to model for three days, then spent a winter in New York in a friend’s windowless basement.

“My mother came from South Africa and said, ‘Either you think about what to do now or you come home, because in South Africa you can sulk.'”

Not long after, in 1994, Theron’s mother bought her a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams in the film industry.

She nailed her first non-speaking role in the 1995 horror film Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest, but her breakthrough role would not come until the 1997 horror drama The Devil’s Advocate.

Most recently, Theron was cast in HBO Max’s The Final Girl Support Group, which is about a group of serial killer survivors who come together to rescue one of them when she goes missing.

Theron and her production company Denver & Delilah Films will develop the project together with IT director Andy Muschietti and his sister/production partner Barbara.

The project is based on the novel The Final Girl Support Group by horror writer Grady Hendrix.

Hendrix’s stories get a lot of attention in the entertainment world.

He is also filming his debut novel Horrorstör and Amazon Studios develops adaptations of its books My Best Friend’s Exorcism and Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires.
