At the opening of its 2017 NYC Season, Victory Dance Project (VDP) will honor distinguished Broadway veteran Chita Rivera with the Woman of Valor Award.
Chita Rivera, perhaps best known for her electric lead performances in Broadway’s original West Side Story, is the winner of two Tony Awards and eight additional nominations. VDP Artistic Director Amy Jordan said Rivera’s longtime artistic excellence and advocacy is what led the company to choose her.
VDP’s season will kick off June 15 and run through June 18 at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center.
