Who's cuter: Katie Holmes or new pal Angelina Ballerina?

Katie-mouseLooks as if Katie Holmes has another new dance partner.

This time it's not husband Tom Cruise -- who may be heading out on his own in the dance department, if the MTV Movie Awards were any indication -- but rather kids' character Angelina Ballerina, and the ladies will be partnering not on the dance floor but rather in an expansion of the Angelina Ballerina Stars of Tomorrow Program.

Key to the effort: the Dizzy Feet Foundation, formed in 2009 by Holmes, Nigel Lythgoe, Carrie Ann Inaba and Adam Shankman to help talented but underprivileged young dancers step forward toward a professional career via scholarships and more.

"We felt a partnership with Angelina Ballerina was a natural fit,” Lythgoe said of the partnership announced Monday in Las Vegas. "Together, we can extend our efforts to help children achieve their dreams to dance."

For Stars of Tomorrow, choreographers will collaborate on developing training and dance techniques for programs that will roll out through the Boys & Girls Clubs. To see more of what it's about, click for videos of completely adorable kids (and their teachers) talking about why they like learning to dance. (Seriously, these children are to die for.)

The program will roll out to at least three additional cities by fall 2010. Till then, we have a poll:
