ROLEX Presents   ON BROADWAY! A Glittering Salute To The American Musical

Career Transition For Dancers 23rd Anniversary Jubilee – Monday, October 27, 2008 New York CITY CENTER.

Rolex presents “ON BROADWAY! A Glittering Salute To The American Musical”- Career Transition For Dancers, 23rd Anniversary Jubilee on Monday, October 27 at 7pm at New York City Center, 131 West 55 Street (bet. 7 & 6 Aves).  Multi award-winning actress Angela Lansbury will host the Gala, which will be followed by an “Anniversary Supper with the Stars” at Hilton New York’s Grand Ballroom. “ON BROADWAY! A Glittering Salute to the American Musical”, is a glorious historical journey inside the Broadway musical seen through the eyes of legendary choreographers. Their choreography transformed Broadway shows into the greatest musicals of all time.

Sono Osato will receive the Career Transition For Dancers' Award for Outstanding Contributions to the World of Dance. A renowned dancer and actress, and one of the first American dancers in de Basil’s original Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, she later became a member of the exciting Ballet Theatre of the 1940’s, performing with Nora Kaye, Alexandra Danilova, Antony Tudor, Lucia Chase, Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins. Tudor created the role of “Rosaline” in “Romeo and Juliet” for her. Ms. Osato appeared on Broadway in de Mille’s “One Touch of Venus” (Donaldson Award) and starred in the role of ‘Miss Turnstiles’ in the classic “On The Town,” (choreographed by Robbins). Ms. Osato’s beauty, intelligence, and lyrical grace, were the hallmarks of her brilliant career.

Cynthia Gregory, Chairman Emerita of Career Transition For Dancers, stated “On behalf of our Gala Chairs, Gala Leadership Committee, Board of Directors and the more than 3,900 dancers we serve nationwide, we are thrilled to honor Sono Osato for her illustrious dance career spanning the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo, American Ballet Theatre and the Broadway stage.  Sono’s compassion for dancers and their well-being is known throughout the dance community and so generously demonstrated in 2006 by establishing The Sono Osato Scholarship Program for Graduate Studies at Career Transition For Dancers.”   

The Gala will be the entertainment-dance event of the new season with appearances by dancers, musicians, stars and many surprises accompanied by the Jubilee Orchestra. It is produced & directed by Ann Marie DeAngelo.  The honorees for the Gala are Sono Osato and Brian Heidtke. Tommy Tune is the recipient of the Rolex Dance Award.  This One Night Only celebration is not-to-be-missed!  The New York Times raved  “ . . . spectacular. . . scintillating. . . this most jubilant of galas!”  Come and Meet Those Dancing Feet!!!
