Dance Lab New York celebrated its new identity, reflective of its mission to be an inclusive hub for dance makers of all genres at their annual Spring Gala at the Ailey Citigroup Theater.

Hosted by Emmy Award-nominated host, dancer, and Broadway star, Paige Davis ("Trading Spaces," Chicago), the evening featured an intimate dinner, a Gala performance featuring a new work-in-progress by Lauren Lovette and other DLNY artists, and an exclusive after-party. The DLNY Spring Gala raises funds for the non-profit organization dedicated solely to advancing the art form of choreography. Tickets are now available at all levels for the event; cocktail attire suggested.

Founded by Broadway choreographer, Josh Prince, Dance Lab New York is the only independent organization exclusively dedicated to promoting and advancing the art form of choreography by gifting vital resources to a diverse range of dance makers. DLNY provides choreographers with a curated company of professional dancers, expansive studio space, and structured rehearsal time in order to incubate ideas in a fully professionalized environment. In addition to these creation grants, our initiatives in training and mentorship ensure continuous progression within the art form. This revolutionary new model for making dance fosters creativity, ingenuity, risk-taking, discovery, and collaboration, which impacts the future of dance in New York and on stages across the world.

Paige Davis is best known as the effervescent star of "Trading Spaces," TV's groundbreaking, Emmy- nominated design-reality show. She co-hosted "Home and Family" for the Hallmark Channel and was the host of OWN's "Home Made Simple," winning a 2013 Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Host in a Lifestyle/Travel Program. Paige's true love, however, is theater and dance. Paige has been seen on Broadway in Chicago as Roxie Hart and in the revival of Boeing, Boeing. On tour she played Babette in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, where she met her husband Patrick Paige, and more recently, in Sweet Charity playing the title role. Paige was the first woman to play the role of God in An Act of God, directed by Marsha Mason.
