Chita recently starred in London, Las Vegas, and Toronto productions of Chicago-The Musical and toured with her new musical, Chita & All That Jazz, a musical celebration of her spectacular life in the theatre. Ms. Rivera created the role of Velma Kelly in the original Broadway production of Chicago opposite Gwen Verdon and appeared as Roxie in the Atlantic City production of Chicago. Winner of 1993 Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Kiss of the Spider Woman on Broadway, she began training as a ballerina at age 11 and shortly thereafter was given a scholarship to the American School of Ballet by the legendary George Balanchine.
Over the course of her distinguished career, Bebe Neuwirth has achieved extraordinary success in theatre, television and film. In 1980, she made her Broadway debut in A Chorus Line. She then appeared in Little Me, Dancin’, and Sweet Charity, for which she won her first Tony Award, followed by Damn Yankees, Fosse, and The Addams Family. Bebe won her second Tony, as well as the Drama Desk, Astaire, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama League Distinguished Performance of the Year Awards for her portrayal of Velma in Chicago. A few years later she played Roxie in the show, making her the only triple-threat to have played both parts on Broadway.

During the summer of 2015 dancer Michael Apuzzo of Paul Taylor Dance Company, and event planner/former Broadway performer Eric Gunhus came up with the idea to bring a new and fresh event to East Hampton: a dance festival of some the most prestigious dance companies and prominent dancers in the world, sharing their gifts to raise funds in support of the arts and the local community.
Michael & Eric decided to combine their efforts and the collaboration brought Dancers For Good to life with their acclaimed event in summer of 2016. Dancers For Good incorporated as their own 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2018.
The name Dancers For Good is two-fold in meaning: Dance is a discipline that stays with the dancer for life…for good. Additionally, this event brings together incredible dancers eager to give their time, talents and energy for charitable philanthropy…to do good. This celebration allows all of us an opportunity to experience Dancers For Good.
This event is like no other in the Hamptons, raising money for The Actors Fund and its vast array of services including:
The Dancers’ Resource
Friedman Health Center for the Performing Arts
Women’s Health Initiative
Senior Services/The Actors Fund Home
Addiction and Recovery Services
and many, many other vital programs
"Dancers are a special breed of artists. It takes a singular type of strength and discipline to succeed in this part of the business and it is enormously difficult to get through the emotional and physical rough patches on your own. Sometimes you need a helping hand and that hand for dancers needs to be filled with an array of specially designed services...those services are provided by The Actors Fund, Dancers Resource/Career Transition For Dancers."Bebe NeuwirthActors Fund Vice Chair, founder of The Dancers' Resource
