Oh, what a night! On June 15, Chita Rivera was presented with the Woman of Valor award from A4D’s Amy Jordan and her Victory Dance Project (VDP). The award honored Chita as a 'woman whose artistic excellence, advocacy, and legacy represents the highest level of integrity and artistic vision.’

Chita and Amy share a common experience. They both were in accidents that profoundly impacted their dance careers. Amy survived a bus accident in NYC that nearly took her life and her leg. Chita survived a car accident that shattered her left leg. She returned to the stage, winning the 1993 Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for her performance in Kiss of the Spider Woman.

And one of Rivera’s castmates from the original West Side StoryGrover Dale didn’t miss the chance to join the celebration. Their connection was unmistakable as these two friends also look forward to the upcoming celebration of the 60th Anniversary of West Side Story this September.

After the performance, Grover gathered with the dancers. He took the time to encourage them and share some inspirational performance advice he first learned from Jerome Robbins about filling the room with energy and ways to connect with the audience.

Two strong women and one enthusiastic teacher gathered together on a night that celebrated Amy’s VDP vision: ‘Making the Impossible Possible with the Power of Movement.’
