Debbie Allen to teach dance classes at Philly schools

She's appeared on everything from 'Fame' to 'Grey's Anatomy'

Dance students at the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) and String Theory Charter School are in for a treat on Tuesday, May 9, and Wednesday, May 10. 

Legendary choreographer Debbie Allen will teach a total of four 90-minute master dance classes. On both dates, there will be a class from 10-11:30 a.m. and from 1:30-3 p.m.

The classes are part of The Mann Center for the Performing Arts and Community Engagement Program’s 2017 Artist-N-Residency Program.

Allen is best known for her role in the television show “Fame,” for which she received a Golden Globe, but has a list of accomplishments.

"Grey's Anatomy" fans might recognize her as Catherine Avery. She also serves as executive producer/director on the ABC medical drama.

On June 6, Allen will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 42nd annual Gracie Awards Gala.
