Highlights will include a Jerry Mitchell Broadway Bares Tribute performed by Kristine Bendul, Waldemar Quinones-Villanueva & Chris Tierney. Bianca Marroquin, Nicholas de la Vega & Nicholas Sipes will perform Mexican Shuffle into I Gotcha for the Fosse number, and Michael Apuzzo of Paul Taylor Dance Company will perform a World Premiere choreographed by Eryc Taylor.

This is done through a wide variety of programs including The Dancers’ Resource, which is geared toward the professional dancer dealing with significant injury, and helps by mitigating the isolation many dancers experience during recovery.
