Photo Coverage: Career Transition for Dancers Celebrates Broadway Dance Community

Mercedes Ellington, JoAnn Hunter, Mary Macleod, Jerry Mitchell, Judine Somerville and the Career Transition for Dancers hosted a "between shows" get together yesterday, May 4, 2011. BroadwayWorld was on hand to celebrate the dance community yesterday and brings you photo coverage below.

Career Transition For Dancers, with offices in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago, has helped over 4,800 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 46,000 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. The organization 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.
