October 15, 2018 - NEWS ABOUT NEXT WEEK'S AUDITIONS NOW!


GROVER DALE AT JEROME ROBBINS EXHIBIT IN NYC


Today, October 11th is the 100 year anniversary of the birth of Jerome Robbins. What a great time to explore an awe-inspiring exhibit at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts in Lincoln Center. 

Voice of My City: Jerome Robbins and New York is dedicated to all things Robbins and his love and identity as a New Yorker. That love was fused into much of his work, most notably West Side Story… And who better to bring a fresh new perspective to Robbins than this week’s special guest, Grover Dale

During the tour, Grover shared personal stories about 35 years of experience with the legendary genius. The audience was enthralled as Grover shared insights of how Robbins created choreography, transformed dancers into credible actors, and illuminated a lot of the crazy fun that was shared backstage.

The tour was led by Kathleen Leary, Education Coordinator for The Jerome Robbins Dance Division (bottom right photo above) who interviewed Grover about how a box of crayons inspired him to create a giant cardboard shark that was dropped at the feet of Jerome Robbins from high above the stage, to teaching his puppy Skitter to slam the door in Robbins face every time he showed up backstage.  

Grover was asked lots of questions. How did a skinny tap dancer manage to become capable of performing as a tough street bully in a Broadway classic? Grover delighted the crowd when he said, ‘There’s a street bully inside every tap dancer, isn't there?’ What a beautiful way to celebrate West Side Story and the 100th anniversary of Jerome Robbins!
