Most recently, he directed the Gloria Estefan Broadway bio-musical, On Your Feet, currently touring the U.S. and shortly to be seen in Amsterdam. He was also nominated for an Olivier Award for his choreography in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which he also directed and co-produced in the West End. In the 35 preceding years, Jerry has been involved with over 50 Broadway, Off-Broadway, West End and touring productions, starting as a dancer for Agnes De Mille in Brigadoon and thereafter assisting Michael Bennett and Jerome Robbins.

ABOUT DANCERS FOR GOOD

 

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
HIV/AIDS Initiative
Women’s Health Initiative
Senior Services/The Actors Fund Home
Disaster Resources
Addiction and Recovery Services
and many, many other vital programs

The Actors Fund
