On Friday, November 7, at the Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts, Stars of New York Dance will open for its 5th annual performance, honoring Rev. Al Sharpton.

This thrilling dance competition pairs local “stars” in the community with choreographers at local dance companies. Each couple must quickly learn a dance routine and then compete against other couples for prize money they will then donate to an arts organization of their choice.

Check out this behind-the-scenes exclusive footage of John Wright, CEO of the Wright Group, choreographer and Jeannie Mitchell, founder and choreographer of Pure Onyx Movement Dance Center as they rehearse for the big night on Friday.

Do you think they will win? Stay tuned to The Brooklyn Reader for more rehearsal footage!
