Donna McKechnie and Jerry Mitchell to Serve as Chairs for Broadway Dance Lab Fundraiser
The Tony winners will help the organization raise funds for its programming.
Tony-winning Broadway hoofers Donna McKechnie (A Chorus Line) and Jerry Mitchell (On Your Feet!) will serve as the cochairs of Broadway Dance Lab's fall fundraiser, to be held November 17 at Judson Church.
The evening will serve as the culmination of an eight-week residency program and feature new works-in-progress by choreographers Andy Blankenbuehler, Camille A. Brown, Geoffrey Goldberg, Marcelo Gomes, Karen Sieber, and Josh Prince, the company's founder. A company of 10 dancers will perform the works and each choreographer will speak about his or her artistic process.
Broadway Dance Lab's mission is to support the development of new, dance-driven theatre works by providing choreographers and their collaborators with dancers, space and the time needed to practice their craft and test their ideas. The non-profit company works under the guidance of a distinguished advisory board, whose members include McKechnie, Chita Rivera and Ben Vereen.
