Gina Rodriguez appeared on “The Ellen Show” this week and danced salsa to raise money for breast cancer research and Hurricane Maria relief in Puerto Rico. It’s right in line with what Ellen has been doing on her show lately: donating to causes that her guests feel very strongly about. Ellen also donated money to Hurricane Maria relief when Ricky Martin visited on the show.

Rodriguez was backstage before the show practicing her moves.

When money is on the line for a good cause, you have to be ready. Get it, Gina! 💪🏽💃🏻

Rodriguez salsa danced her way into raising funds for two incredible causes.

Rodriguez has been especially vocal on social media about Hurricane Maria Relief in Puerto Rico. She also appeared on a song with Lin-Manuel Miranda and many other artists to help bring aid to the devastated island.

Rodriguez raised more money by teaching Ellen’s executive producer, Andy Lassner, how to dance salsa.

Rodriguez is a patient salsa teacher, because this guy’s got two left feet. But hey, it’s all in good fun if you’re raising money for a good cause. Wepa!
