The inaugural Chita Rivera Awards for Dance and Choreography, recognizing the work of choreographers and dancers on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and on film, were held September 11 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.
Formerly presented as the Fred and Adele Astaire Awards, the honors were rebranded earlier this year to honor the two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway dance legend who created roles in West Side Story, Bye Bye Birdie, Chicago, The Rink, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and most recently, The Visit.
