Entitled That’s Entertainment! Celebrating Career Transition for Dancers’ 20th Anniversary Jubilee, the 7 PM evening, according to press notes, "will pay homage to a century of dance in American entertainment. It will be a lively jubilee that highlights a variety of styles from Ballet to Broadway to Break Dance — with a side order of circus arts for fun." Those already lined up to take part in the evening include Sandy Duncan, Bill Irwin, Lypsinka, Michael Moschen, Richard Move, Noah Racey, Mr. Wiggles of the Electric Boogaloos and Karen Ziemba. The one-night-only event will also boast artists from American Ballet Theatre, AntiGravity, The Big Apple Circus, Complexions, Dance Times Square, Martha Graham Dance Company and the World Cup Shooting Stars All Star Cheerleading. (The roster of participants is subject to change.)
Produced and directed by Ann Marie DeAngelo, the evening will feature musical direction by Robert Mikulski.
