CHITA RIVERA TO BE HONORED BY AMY JORDAN'S DANCE CO

chita honored

Broadway legend Chita Rivera will be honored by the New York-based Victory Dance Project at its third anniversary celebration, scheduled for June 15 in New York. Ms. Rivera will be presented with the company’s Woman of Valor Award at the celebration—titled From This Movement On—at the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center. The award honors “a woman whose artistic excellence, advocacy, and legacy represents the highest level of integrity and artistic vision.”

If Victory Dance Project sounds familiar to you, that’s because its artistic director is A4D’s Amy Jordan! You may recall Amy’s story of overcoming adversity after she was run over by a New York City bus and how that event profoundly shifted Amy’s focus to “Making the Impossible Possible with the Power of Movement.”

Amy’s exuberance is unmistakable, “I am beyond thrilled to have Chita Rivera as this year’s honoree as she too overcame a serious accident and is the epitome of a true artist and woman of valor with grace, talent, humility and class. She has transcended cultural and gender barriers and continues to be a strong voice for dignity and respect for all life.”

We're also thrilled that Amy will return to the stage for the first time since her 2009 accident, dancing in a new work choreographed by Christopher Jackson. In appreciation, she is dedicating the performance to the incredible doctors at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Burn Unit, who she credits with saving her life.

This announcement brings an extra level of excitement to us at Answers4dancers since it will also give us a chance to see two original West Side Story castmates jointly celebrate the wonder of Amy Jordan’s life and her message of encouragement!
