The iconic Ann Margret was on hand to graciously say “thank you” and a lot more when given her beautiful new Rolex by Liza Minnelli as Broadway & Beyond celebrated Theatre and Dance, in this 28th Anniversary Jubilee of Career Transition for Dancers on October 8th.

Some of the evening’s performances included Randy Skinner & Sara Brians in “Begin the Beguine,” a Tribute to Danny Daniels with Dule Hill, Jason Samuels Smith and Jimmy Tate; a Hip Hop Segment with Jayson “B-boy Mouse” Vesquez; an “On The Town” – “Subway Ride/Dream Coney Island The Great Lover Displays Himself” highlight dance sequence and from Dresden Semperoper Ballet – Benois De La Dance winner David Dawson performed by Nataliya Sologub & Raphael Coumes-Marquet.


Broadway was represented by Orfeh – “Last Time I Cry” and by Andrea McArdle “Tomorrow,” along with “At the Ballet” with Kelly Bishop, Hollie Howard and Christiane Noll.


Then it was off to a gala dinner at the New York Hilton for more celebration!
