I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting one of my heroes this summer as part of the Broadway Teachers Workshop program- Ms. Chita Rivera!! The week long session featured over a dozen working professionals from Broadway’s theatrical world teaching sessions in playwriting to puppetry, music direction to making shows remotely.

The outstanding line-up of guest speakers included the incredible Patti Lupone, Billy Porter Stephen Schwartz and the one and only Chita Rivera. In my 3 minute online visit with her, we discussed fitness regimes, her ballet training and her adoration for Brent Carver (who recently passed away), her leading man in Kiss of the Spider Woman.I was thrilled to have had the chance to meet, albeit virtually, and will continue to follow in those glorious dancer footsteps.
