Superhuman Chaz Buzan Performs Tonight in Impressions IV

Tonight at 8 pm, Symphony Space will host Impressions IV—an evening celebrating all-things-dance. Performers include Taeler Cyrus (After Midnight), Jess LeProtto (Newsies), Michael Rosen (West Side Story), Amelia Lowe ("So You Think You Can Dance"), Phoenix Project Dance and ICONic Dance Crew ("America's Best Dance Crew"), to name a few.

Oh, and did we mention that the magnificent Chaz Buzan—assistant to Mia Michaels and DS January 2013 cover star—will perform solos throughout the evening?

If you've never seen Buzan perform, tonight's your chance to find out why Mia Michaels affectionately calls him a "freak of nature." (If you have seen him perform, then we don't really have to convince you...do we?)

Impressions IV is tonight at 8 pm at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space. Click here for more info and to buy your tickets. Portions of ticket proceeds benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

And to tide you over in the meantime, here's a video of Chaz Buzan performing "My Heart," choreographed by TOKYO, at the KARtv Awards in Las Vegas:
