George Chakiris Booking Agency Profile

Book George Chakiris for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Long before George Chakiris became a household name in his Oscar winning performance of West Side Story, he performed in numerous minor roles, starting off as a dancer or member of the chorus in assorted musical films. Born in Norwood, Ohio, his musical and choreography training began sequentially after graduating from high school. Chakiris supported his dream of dancing, singing and theatrical lessons with his daytime job working as a department store clerk. Determined to make it, Chakiris continued on to attend the American School of Dance in Hollywood. It was in London that Chakiris first got his big break from choreographer-director Jerome Robbins, debuting as Riff, the leader of the Jets, in the production of West Side Story. Following this success, the co-director Robert Wise met with Robbins who selected Chakiris to play Bernardo, the feisty alluring leader of the rival Sharks gang, in the Stephen Sondheim-Leonard Bernstein musical. The performance won Chakiris his most prestigious accolades, the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor- Motion Picture..
