Rick McKay & More Will Take Part in LUIGI Tribute at Symphony Space
by BWW News Desk - Dec 21, 2015

Years ago, when I was practically a kid, studying to move to New York City and break into the biz, I had a dance scholarship in the Luigi technique. And when I came to New York I studied with him. He changed my life, but then again, he seems to have changed everyone's life that was lucky enough to know him.
