Dancers over 40 proudly honored five women with their first-ever Dancers Over 40 Legacy Awards and luncheon on Sunday December 13th, at Swing 46, 349 West 46th Street. These women, whose careers, lives and deeds have exceeded expectations and whose contributions to the art of dance have been extraordinary, are Marge Champion, Marge Beddow, Nicole Barth, Gemze de Lappe and Billie Mahoney. They come from a variety of backgrounds, each with a special charm, a diverse dance history, and a story to tell. They have shared their History, their Legacy and their Lives with Dancers Over 40 over the years, volunteered for DOO40, and just plain made the world a better place for being here. Dancers Over 40 is proud to honor these women, their achievements and their lives.
This event sold out faster than any of our previous DO40 panels. It featured 10 rare clips of Cole choreography and panelists Chita Rivera, Marge Champion, Ethel and George Martin, Gemze deLappe, Norma Doggett Bezwick (from Cole's first Broadway show, "Magdalena," in 1948), Stuart Hodes -- and with moderator Alan Johnson and host Dick Cavett.
