In an event that sounds like mondo fun for you lucky New Yorkers,  Dancers Over 40 is presenting an evening devoted to exploring the life and work of the late dancer and choreographer, Michael Kidd.  Featuring a star-laden lineup of participants, the program is scheduled for April 6, 2009 at 8:00 at St. Luke’s Theater on 308 West 46th Street.

Can’t make it?  Fear not, DO40 videotapes these performances and gives a copy to the Jerome Robbins Dance Division of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.  Cool.  Oops.  Wrong choreographer.
