MONDAYS For BIDEN, a group conceived by Broadway's Jeffrey Schecter, has announced their virtual fundraising event "DANCING For DEMOCRACY" on Monday October 5th at 9:00pm EST. The group was created to provide a virtual place for busy artists, humanitarians, parents and all who want to help Joe Biden become our next US President.

Jeffrey declares, "As we are a group of dancers and performers we wanted to share what we love most. DANCE has POWER. Dynamic and intentional movement is essential for the human body to THRIVE. Movement brings JOY and RELIEF, it is inherently Action based...and it's great for the HEART."

The event, hosted by Jeffrey and fellow Broadway veteran and A Chorus Line alum, J. Elaine Marcos, will be a spirited and dynamic One Hour virtual experience featuring performances and testimonials by some of Broadway and Hollywood's most well-loved performers. During the event, they will be offering important information on next-steps for taking action and there will even be an interactive opportunity to learn choreography for the final VICTORY DANCE, choreographed by Melissa McCann!

Special guests include: Tony Winners Annaleigh Ashford (You Can't Take It With You), Laura Benanti (Gypsy), Chris Gattelli (Newsies), Nikki M. James (Book Of Mormon), Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes, Wonderful Town), Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, La Cage aux Folles), Sergio Trujillo (Ain't Too Proud); Tony Nominees Adrienne Barbeau (Original Rizzo in Grease), Danny Burstein (Fiddler on the Roof), Marcia Milgrom Dodge (Ragtime), Robert La Fosse (Jerome Robbins Broadway), Beth Malone (Fun Home), Rory O'Malley (Book Of Mormon), Valarie Pettiford (Fosse); as well as Jessica Lee Goldyn (A Chorus Line), JoAnn M. Hunter (School of Rock), Jess LeProtto (Cats), Gerry McIntyre (Pandemic Godspell), Josh Walden (Ragtime) and BroadwayWorld's Best Choreographer James Kinney, among others.
