Dave and James Franco have a 'strange kind of artsy family' tradition every holiday season, courtesy of their mother.
"Scrubs" star Dave Franco is spending the holiday season learning to swing dance with his actor brother James Franco. The 24-year-old goes back to his parents' home in Palo Alto, California every year to spend Christmas with his two brothers, and admits his author mum Betsy started off the festive celebrations this Thanksgiving with jazz lessons for the whole family.
He explains, "I went up north (for Thanksgiving) - I'm from Palo Alto originally. At Thanksgiving and Christmas time, it's the only time we're all guaranteed to be home. We have a very strange kind of artsy family so this time of year, we have new traditions all the time. My mum decided this year we should all go swing dancing - just the family. Of course I was the only one without a date, and so I had to dance with the teacher, who was a dude. I got a few moves but I'm a goofy dancer!"
