Sapphira Martin and Alfonso Forrest rehearse for the Stars of New York Dance Competition

On Friday, November 18, at the Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts, Stars of New York Dance will open for its 7th annual performance, honoring Tony Award-Winning Choreographer, Director and Producer George Faison.

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 exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage of local “Dancing Star” Alfonso Forrest, chief education administrator for the Trey Whitfield School and choreographer Sapphira Martin, artistic director of Let’s Dance, as they rehearse at Mt. Pigsah Baptist Church for the big night on Friday.

Do you think they will win? Check out more rehearsal footage here and here.
