The many modes of Chita Rivera


Let’s watch this great dancer/entertainer, Chita Rivera (1933-2024), do her thing in her 2005 show “The Dancer’s Life,” in which she pays homage to her choreographers, Jack Cole, Peter Gennaro, Bob Fosse, and Jerome Robbins. It is a brilliant montage impeccably performed. Rivera found this luminous path to continue to share her gifts well into her latter years.

An artist of many modes and expressions.

Listen to Chita Rivera and artsmeme’s Debra Levine interviewed by Vincent Dowd on the BBC.
