Debbie Allen is proving to be a real rib cracker. The actress and choreographer recently posted a hilarious photo on her Instagram feed that got several of her fans and followers laughing.

In the shot, she had on a stunning grey garment with a lovely silver brooch holding it in place. She combined the look with matching sparkling jewelry and had on a simple but perfect makeup.

Her long curly hair was done in an elaborate style, and she rested her manicured hand on her chest as she posed for the camera. Fallon, on the other hand, was dressed in his signature black suit. Allen captioned:

The post comes weeks after the actress opened up about her experience chasing her dancing dream. Born in Houston, Texas, she started dancing when she was three and became determined to be a performer at 4.

Seeing her passion, her parents enrolled her in dance classes at the age of 5. When she was 12, she auditioned for the Houston Ballet School but was rejected because of her skin color.

After spending years as the king of the late-night shows, Fallon's ratings have taken a nosedive.

A year later, she was secretly enrolled by a Russian instructor who had been impressed by her performance. By the time the school found out about the situation, it was too late as she was already an asset.

At 16, she had another brush with racial segregation when she was denied admission into the North Carolina School of Arts because her body was supposedly unsuited for dance.

This criticism was often used to discourage Black dancers back in the day. The rejection hit hard, and all through high school and college, she focused on her studies.

It was not until she graduated that she headed for Broadway, officially kick-starting her remarkable career as an actress and dancer. Years later, she has made a mark in the entertainment industry.

Allen gave the world a little glimpse of her funny side when she took part in the trend of photoshopping celebrity photos on the shoulder with Fallon.

Fallon has been known to give the world quality comedic content. He recently even made a parody of singer Taylor Swift's "Folklore" documentary, naming his version "Fallonlore."

After spending years as the king of the late-night shows, Fallon's ratings have taken a nose dive and landed him in third place. Despite this, the comedian will surely always have a place in the hearts of his fans.
