Since leaving the Music Hall in 1963 Gail has remained active in the dance world with activities that have included: teaching, choreography, performing, and owning a studio with her daughter. Teaching has ranged from classes in Philadelphia area studios to being on the staff as Dance Director at Cabrini College. As a Choreographer she has produced over eighty musical stage productions (school, community theatre, and professional). For the past 8 years, Gail has choreographed the “Fantapulous” dance routine (consisting of 400-600 ‘tappers’) for the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Parade as well as opening and closing numbers. When she turned 50, Gail stepped back on the stage as company manager and to perform in the “Golden Girl Follies” at Bally’s (now Hilton) Casino in Atlantic City for two years. She then joined the cast of “The Silver Sizzles Review” as choreographer and returned to Trump’s Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. “Silver Sizzles” continues to perform at Dinner Theatres and Casinos throughout the country and Canada. Remaining active in the Alumnae, she has performed several times as a member of the “Breathless Twelve” and is the current Recording Secretary for the Board Of Directors.
