Broadway actress leads dance class in Gloucester
<?EM-dummyText [Drophead goes here] ?>
Veteran Broadway actress Wendy Waring, whose credits on the Great White Way include roles in "The Producers," "The Will Rogers Follies," and "Crazy for You," makes her Gloucester Stage Company debut in "Songs For a New World," opening Aug. 4. But since she's in town already, Waring (above left) led a class in Broadway dance techniques at the Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshop directed by Heidi Dallin. Waring taught the students some classic Broadway steps and dance routines, and also re-created the Tommy Tune choreography from the original Broadway production of "The Will Rogers Follies." Though she lives in New York, the actress is no stranger to the North Shore, having spent her summers in Rockport with her dad, Bayard Waring, and her mom, Bea Waring, who was Miss America 1948.
