The Chita Rivera Awards, originally scheduled for May 17 at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, have been postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The awards, which celebrate dance and choreographic excellence of the past, present, and future, will be presented on a date to be announced later in the year.
Come celebrate the 'best of dance' for theater and film!
This star-studded annual event recognizes dance and choreographic excellence on Broadway, Off-Broadway and in film. The evening will include Broadway performances, special guest honorees and celebrated presenters. As the only 'awards ceremony' dedicated to dance, the Chita Rivera Awards nurture an ongoing sense of community by honoring the past, celebrating the present and investing in the future generations.
Past participants have included Tommy Tune, Ann Reinking, Ben Vereen, Bebe Neuwirth, John Kander, Hal Prince, George C. Wolfe, Carmen DeLavallade, the casts of numerous current hit Broadway shows, additional Tony Award winning actors and choreographers.... and of course, the incomparable Chita Rivera.
All proceeds benefit the NYC Dance Alliance Foundation College Scholarship Program which awards college scholarships to talented teenagers.
