On Sunday, September 29 at 7:30pm at NYU’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts (566 LaGuardia Place), Oscar and Tony Award-winning actress CATHERINE ZETA-JONES will be honored at the NYC Dance Alliance Foundation’s Bright Lights Shining Stars Gala where she will receive their prestigious Ambassador for the Arts Award.


This exciting star-studded evening of song and dance will serve as a fundraiser for the NYC Dance Alliance Foundation which since 2010 has awarded $8.5 million in college scholarships to hundreds of student dancers across the country (and this year alone awarded $3.4 million). The evening will include performances from the Broadway and dance communities and a special tribute to Catherine Zeta-Jones.


The evening begins at 6pm with a pre-show cocktail reception, with the awards gala taking place at 7:30pm and a VIP after party to follow at 9pm.


A limited number of tickets are available to public beginning August 1 and can be purchased by phone at 855-692-5678 or online at
