The world-famous Rockettes and Knicks City Dancers along with Broadway stars Tony Vincent (American Idiot, NBC's "The Voice"), Christina Sajous (Spiderman), Derrick Baskin (Memphis) and Justin Johnson (Rent) are serving as this year's guest artists mentoring for nearly 100 children partaking in the Garden of Dreams Talent Show. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the rehearsal yesterday, March 5, and brings you photo coverage below!
The Garden of Dreams Talent Show is an annual event where children from various Garden of Dreams partner organizations, all facing various issues – whether they relate to illness, homelessness, poverty, foster care or tragedy, are presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform on the Great Stage at Radio City Music Hall. For one memorable evening in front of their family and friends, the children perform with talent, emotion and passion, celebrating their unique voices.
As guest mentors, these accomplished artists watched and listened as the kids rehearsed their singing, dancing, and/or hip hop act, providing helpful advice on how to improve their technique and overall performance.
This year's talent show will showcase more than 20 different performances from 13 Garden of Dreams Foundation partner organizations, including SCO Family of Services, Children's Aid Society, NYU Medical Center and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
