Everybody Dance!
“Seventh Event” Honors “So You Think You Can Dance”

Contact: Crystal Kusiak

Sharp and Associates
(310) 652-7770

The Gabriella Axelrad Education Foundation presents the
“Seventh Event” to benefit its everybody dance! program and
the Gabriella Charter School on Saturday June 2 at USC’s
Bing Theatre. Creator/Producers Nigel Lythgoe and Simon
Fuller will accept the Limelight Award for their hit FOX
series “So You Think You Can Dance”. The pair also produces
the phenomenal American Idol. The Gregory Hines Humanity
Award goes to Emmy & American Choreography Award winning
performer/choreographer Jason Samuels Smith of LA Tap Fest,
which will be presented by Dule Hill, the recipient of the
award last year, and Debbie Allen. The event will feature
special performances from the students of Everybody Dance!

For over seven years, everybody dance! has been giving Los
Angeles’ underserved children a chance to expand their
potential and broaden their horizons through the arts. Both
the charter school, which opened in 2005, and the dance
programs strive to instill a love of learning, dance and
the arts. Both programs are located in the densely
populated Rampart section in Los Angeles and together serve
over one thousand children.

The Foundation was established in memory of Gabriella
Axelrad, a 13-year-old who loved to dance. In her honor,
her brother, Joe Axelrad, will serve as the host for the
evening. Event chair, Wendy Beiser says, “Our organization
believes it shouldn’t be just a privilege, but a right for
every child to have access to the arts and excellence in
education. It enriches their lives and opens up their world
in ways we cannot measure. Our event celebrates our kids
and those in the arts community who share this belief.”

Dance instruction is provided at little or no cost to
ethnically diverse, economically disadvantaged children in
Los Angeles. The Foundation’s mission is to help each child
it serves nurture self-confidence, acquire self-discipline
and create a positive self-image through the arts.

“Dance has allowed me to have so many wonderful experiences
throughout my life. Giving a child a chance to develop
their talent and passion for dance is a wonderful gift that
can change the course of their journey. When I first
learned of Everybody Dance and all that they were doing I
was inspired. I had to get involved,” says presenter and
long time supporter Dule Hill.

Other honorees include writer and dancer, Tatiana
Blackington James and Todd James of the Capital Group, who
will receive the Founders Award. Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch,
philanthropist and arts benefactor will receive the Patron
Award.


Attendees include: Dule Hill (The West Wing), Debbie
Allen, Tiffany (recording artist), Shondrella Avery
(Napoleon Dynamite)

A message from Stephanie Reice:


Hi,

My name is Stephanie Reice and I was referred to you by
Claudia Rhardjanoto. I'm actually a student of Lynne
Schwab, Barbara Duffy, Brenda Buffalino, and Derick Grant.
I am writing to you because I am volunteering through a
non-profit organization called Artist's Striving to End
Poverty (ASTEP) and am going to Port Elizabeth, South
Africa to facilitate a theater arts camp with the
impoverished children from the townships outside of PE.
There are 7 artists going to work with the children and
besides doing acting and singing workshops with the
children, I have been asked to facilitate basic tap classes
with the kids.

My goal is collect about 40-50 pairs of used tap shoes for
children in jr. high and high school. I'm wondering if you
have any resources in finding these used tap shoes or know
of anyone who could donate new ones.

Here is the website for the organization I am working with:
www.createsomethinggood.com. If you happened to watch NY1
last week, the woman who started the non-profit was named
New Yorker of the week, Mary-Mitchell Campbell, last week.
Here is the link to the article on NY1:
http://www.ny1.com/ny1/content/index.jsp?stid=34&aid=68948

The organization is supported by many people within the
Broadway Community which is how I heard about this
wonderful organization. If there is any way you could help
me in this endeavor it would be greatly appreciated. Also
if there are any kind of instructional video tapes or dvds
that you might be able to donate that I could leave the
kids with after I leave that may be very helpful to them.
The arts camp (which was originally run out of Julliard)
has never had a tap dancer facilitate classes with these
kids so this will be the first time they will be exposed to
tap dance and although I may not have much time with them I
would love to be able to leave them with the shoes and
videos for after I leave.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

message from Rome:

Greetings Folks,

This has been a wonderful time for me to beam with
pride over the accomplishments of some of my artistic
friends, like
the young fifteen old alto sax player (Elijah Shiffer) who
I'm
always raving about. Well Elijah just received two
Downbeat
Awards for his first CD. You remember Elijah, he
periodically stops down to the jam sessions and was
featured at my Banana Puddin' Jazz
Jam in February with his group. Then there's my good
friend Ron
Cephus Jones an actor who just so happen to have started
his acting
career out as the lead (Lee Morgan) in the play "Don't
Explain"
which I directed at the Nuyorican in 92'. Well last week
I was at
the Obie Awards when Ron was honored with one of Off-
Broadway most
prestigious awards along with some other good friends,
Andre De
Shields, Lou Bellamy and Daniel Beaty. Prior to that I
received the opportunity
to see the new August Wilson play, "Radio Golf" on Broadway
and
recently received news that my good friend, Anthony
Chisholm has
been nominated for a TONY award for his excellent work.
Also one of
my favorite theatre companies, The Classical Theatre and
one of the
sponsors of my Banana Puddin' Jazz series, continues to
make me beam
with pride as they have just received a Lucille Lortel
Award for
their outstanding body of work. Make sure you go see
Alfred Preisser
and Chris McElroen's new classic work, Electra, opening
this week.

www.classicaltheatreofharlem.org

Now I get the opportunity to feature another
wonderful friend and talent I'm very proud of, the
marvtastic tap dancer, Michela Marino Lerman along with the
Shakere Award winning
legendary bassist, Bob Cunningham and his trio. It's going
to be a hot
night in the house this Saturday night, however we do have
enough air
conditioning and jazz to keep you cool.

Stay Banana Puddin' Sweet,

Rome

New York Classical Theatre's "Shakespeare on the Run"
Presents it's 8th Season of FREE Theatre in Central Park!

"Love's Labour's Lost"
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Stephen Burdman
May 31-June 24, 2007
Thursdays-Sundays, at 7pm Sharp
at West 103rd Street & CPW inside Central Park ,
All Ages
FREE!
Subways: B or C to 103rd St & CPW
Bus: M7, M10, to 103rd Street & CPW
FREE!
No Tickets or Reservations Needed, Just Show Up!
Hotline: 212-252-4531
www.newyorkclassical.org
Spring is in the air with "Love's Labour's Lost", when boys
swear off love in pursuit of knowledge. Boys meet girls.
Watch how quickly boys' oaths are forgotten in favor of
other more "earthly pursuits." Shakespeare's lush romantic
comedy roams through Central Park, but with a twist.

Stephen Burdman, Artistic Director, will direct you in the
right direction, so you won't miss a thing. When you enter
at West 103rd Street and Central Park West you will be led
into the park where the play will begin. Central Park's
grounds set the stage for this production and then the fun
really begins!

As you watch the show, the next scene that is about to
happen starts about 50 feet away, and then we are off. The
whole audience follows the actors to where the scene is
taking place every 10-15 minutes, so no snoozing during
this show!

The play begins at West 103rd Street and moves around the
lake using footbridges, trees, rocks, benches and even the
audience as scenery!

Lots of fun with this Shakespeare production, it's great
for the whole family.

Wear comfortable shoes or sneakers, and you can come on
your bike, rollerblades, heely's or scooters. You can even
bring along your dog for the walk! The show is wheelchair
accessible and also, perfect to bring the little ones in
their strollers, (no problem if they fall asleep).

As the sun goes down, Stephen and his crew - - with a
little help from Central Park's fireflies - - will light
the show.

New York Classical provides a great night of FREE theatre
for the family, a date, friends, or even those who are
flying solo!

Shakespeare enthusiasts and those new to the Bard will have
a great time experiencing Shakespeare with New York
Classical Theatre!

New York Classical Theatre will have their rehearsals open
to the public during May 3-May 30, at 103rd Street & CPW,
varying times, everyday except for Fridays.

**Now for the 2nd Year! New York Classical Theatre along
with Central Park Conservancy, will run a FREE, 45 minute
Shakespeare Workshop for Children at the same location of
103rd Street & CPW.

This workshop is for Kids Ages 8-10 and will be held the
last two Friday's & Saturday's, June 16, 17, 23 & 24 at
5:00 pm-5:45PM (parents/guardians required). No
reservations, just show up!

Pack a picnic for after the workshop and then enjoy the
show at 7pm!
