To commemorate our 10th anniversary and our theme, “White Christmas the Movie and the Music” we will be having a very special guest: Meet George Chakiris, one of the lead dancers from the movie, “White Christmas!”
“Throughout the film, dancer George Chakiris accompanies the Haynes sisters in an uncredited role. But soon after, he received the credit he was due: He later won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor as Bernardo in West Side Story. [As well as aGolden Globe!]”
George Chakiris has also been featured in movies such as; There’s No Business Like Show Business, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Brigadoon! And has appeared alongside icons like Cyd Charisse, Mitzi Gaynor, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly, and Rosemary Clooney.
