For Dancer Kevin Boseman, Performing with Dance Against Cancer Is Personal
Dancer Kevin Boseman's cancer diagnosis a few years ago changed the way he saw life. "What I realized was worrying about things like my career or what is the next chapter of my life are not important," he says. "The real value is in our relationships. Also, life is so short. If there is something you really want to do, there's no time to waste."
Boseman, who danced with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Martha Graham Dance Company before spending 10 years doing Broadway tours and regional shows, is now in remission. But he lost his brother, actor Chadwick Boseman, to colon cancer last August.
So it was particularly poignant when Fredrick Earl Mosley, founder of Earl Mosley's Diversity of Dance, Inc., called to ask if he'd perform a work for this year's Dance Against Cancer benefit. Mosley was one of the first people Boseman met when he landed in New York City almost 30 years ago to begin his dance career. They've been friends ever since.
