Fans of the CW’s hit “Jane The Virgin” already know what a star talent Gina Rodriguez is. Her role as Jane Villanueva has afforded us the gift of seeing her many skills on full display. Not only can the girl rap, and keep up with the likes of Britney Spears, she also has mad salsa skills. In her most recent appearance on the “Ellen Show,” the Puerto Rican-American actress showed off her dance skills and showed up every other person that’s every been on Ellen. EVER.

Now, plenty of celebrity guests have made their mark on the Ellen stage with an impressive entrance. But let’s be honest, Gina’s moves blow all other entrances out of the water. The only way this one could possibly be knocked off the top of the charts, is if she danced to “Quimbara” with Celia Cruz (RIP).

In an effort to raise money for people in need, Ellen has been getting her celebrity guests to present their most impressive dance entrances and other talents. Gina partnered up with Ulta Beauty to raise $10,000 in the name of breast cancer research. A move that reaches right to the core of our hearts by the way ?.
But after her entrance, Rodriguez proved her work for charity was far from over.

Rodriguez got to work teaching Ellen’s executive producer Andy Lassner a few moves as well. For all of her hard work, DeGeneres awarded Rodriguez an extra $10,000. This time all of the money went to victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. ? ? ?
It’s not the first time Rodriguez’s fire talents have helped out her home country.

Earlier this month the actress got together with Lin-Manuel Miranda to raise money for relief in Puerto Rico. The actress has showed off her rapping chops before but, similar to her salsa on Ellen, this time around meant so much more since it was for such an important cause. We’re so pumped to see what other hidden talents Gina breaks out for us next!
