“Superstars of Dance” premiered tonight, January 4, 2009, on NBC. The three-week international dance competition will feature dance groups from around the world competing for the title of Superstars of Dance. Each dance group will feature two soloists, one duo, and one larger dance group. The winner will be crowned by hosts Susie Castillo and Michael Flately on January 19.

As a biography, Susie Castillo was born on January 6, 1980, in Methuen, Massachusetts, so her age is 28 (or 29 in 2 days). She graduated from Endicott College in 2001 with a bachelors degree in Interior Architecture and Design. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Matt Leslie, and her two dogs, chihuahuas named Lupe and Oscar. She is involved in philanthropy, particularly with the American Red Cross and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation.

Susie modeled from her teenage years and competed in pageants. In 1998, she won the Miss Massachusetts Teen USA pageant. In 2002 she was named Miss Massachusetts, and then in 2003, Susie was crowned Miss USA, the third Latina to hold the title.

Susie has had a fairly successful career as an actress. She has appeared in the Disney movie “Underdog” and several television series. In 2009, her latest film is set for release. Susie plays the role of Linda in the indie film “The Heartbreaker”. She also does commercial work as a spokesmodel for Neutrogena. In the midst of her acting appearances, she was a regular on MTV, hosting “TRL” as well as a variety of reality show reunion specials. She can currently be seen hosting “America’s Prom Queen” on ABC Family.

On July 1, 2008, Susie’s first book was published. It is titled “Confidence is Queen: The Four Keys to Ultimate Beauty through Positive Thinking”. In the book, she shares the secrets she has learned over the years for reaching your goals. She was also named #78 on Maxim’s 2008 Hot 100 List.

Susie thanks her mother for her success, the woman who raised her and inspired her to dream big. She says,

For my sisters and I, just knowing how hard my mother worked to give us a better life than she had gave us the strength and inspiration to rise far above the little that society expected of us. My mother taught us that if we could dream it, we could achieve it – and she was right.
