Yesterday, on April 28, The Shubert Organization and the Career Transition For Dancers hosted a "Between the Shows" get together and dinner for for Broadway dance community at Sardi's in Times Square.  In attendance was Nick Adams, Kelly BishopCaitlin Carter, Mercedes EllingtonPriscilla Lopez, Vivian NixonKeith Roberts, John Selya, Judine Somerville and many more of the talented dancers that grace the Broadway stages each night. BroadwayWorld was also on hand for the celebration honoring some of Broadway's best.

Career Transition For Dancers (CTFD), with offices in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago, has helped over 4,300 professional dancers in 47 states identify their unique talents in preparation for establishing new careers when dance is no longer an option. Since its founding in 1985, the organization has provided more than 43,000 hours (equivalent to over $4 million) of one-on-one career counseling and program services - at no cost - and has awarded millions of dollars in scholarships for education, entrepreneurial grants, and certification programs. CTFD also provides dancers with specialized services that include transition seminars and workshops, peer support groups, resource centers, a toll-free national career counseling hotline, a website, and a National Career Network. 

Dancers give audiences lasting moments of inspiration, capturing the essence of life through movement. Yet, unlike all other performing artists, dancers must give up their chosen profession - often at the height of their careers - due to injury or "aging out" by 30. Career Transition For Dancers recognizes the brevity of a dance career; the education that dancers must often postpone or forego; and the extraordinary physical, emotional and financial demands these artists encounter during the various stages of their careers.
