THAT UNFORGETTABLE MOMENT AMY JORDAN MET CHITA RIVERA

chita amy

Earlier this year, we announced that member Amy Jordan’s Victory Dance Project will be celebrating their three year anniversary next month at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center in New York City. A highlight of the event will include honoring Broadway Legend Chita Rivera who is this year’s recipient of the ‘Woman of Valor’ Award.

Imagine Amy’s delight when she was recently invited to see Ms. Rivera’s cabaret show at the world famous Carlyle Café in the Carlyle Hotel. Amy was overwhelmed with emotion and moved to tears. She shares, ‘Seeing Ms. Rivera up close and personal in such a wonderful setting reminded me, in large part, why I do what I do. Her power, grace, humor and poignant nature sent chills up and down my spine. It made me want to work harder as an artist and be better as a human being.’

Then the bonus! Amy was invited to meet Chita after the show and was speechless. ‘There I was standing next to a living legend whose work had shaped and inspired me for a lifetime… All I could say was thank you.’

The Victory Dance Project mission: Making the Impossible possible with the Power of Movement. This June 15-18, The Victory Dance Project will present its signature work ‘Human Revolution’ as well as premieres of new choreography set by Amy Jordan. On June 15, Amy herself triumphantly returns to the stage dancing for the first time since her 2009 life-altering accident.

For tickets to this exciting event and your chance to meet Ms. Rivera at a cocktail reception following the June 15 performance, be sure to visit www.victorydance.org. You can meet the Victory Dance Project dancers too. Amy hopes to see you at the show. Stop by and say hello!
