Richard Gere honored by Boston Youth Moves

Richard Gere, who unleashed his inner song-and-dance side during his killer performance as Billy Flynn in the film version of "Chicago," will be honored alongside Mitzi Gaynor at the Boston Youth Moves gala fundraiser called "Swellegance" at the Westin Copley Place, 10 Huntington Ave., on Saturday, March 7.

Tony Award winner Chita Rivera will present the Lifetime Achievement Award to Gaynor, known for her work in "South Pacific."

Gere, who is slotted to receive the Image Award for "heightening the visibility of dance, in particular for male dancers," will make the trek if his schedule permits.

The black-tie fundraiser will include an exhibition from Alvin Ailey principal dancer Kirven J. Boyd, as well as performances from the students of Boston Youth Moves. JC Monahan will emcee.

Tickets are $175. Call 617-523-1355 or click here for details.
