Legendary producer/director/dancer Debbie Allen was in the celebratory mood last night at an event in Beverly Hills. The EMMY winning choreographer hosted her “Freeze Frame” gala at the JW Marriott. And it was a star-studded affair.

Joining Debbie on the carpet was her sister/regal actress Phylicia Rashad, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith and her fab mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones. They came out to support Debbie’s new production “Freeze Frame” where she tackles major issues, such as gun violence, through dance. “Freeze Frame” will be shown at the Wallis in Beverly Hills, Feb. 5th-7th, by the way.
