Mindy Cooper On Ann Reinking Scholarship Board
Broadway veteran Mindy Cooper, professor of theatre and dance, will be among the advisory board members for The Ann Reinking Scholarship which has been established to honor the late award-winning choreographer, dancer and actress.
The scholarship is a $5,000 annual award and mentorship for a young dancer moving to New York City to help support them in their artistic endeavors.
Cooper, who was a swing on the Reinking-choreographer 1996 revival of CHICAGO the Musical, joins such theatre luminaries as Chita Rivera, Joel Grey, Tommy Tune, Marilu Henner, Hinton Battle and Charlotte d’Amboise as well as Reinking’s husband, Peter Talbert, and son, Chris Reinking Stuart.
