‘Take’ gives back

Dancers display their moves at after-bash

‘Tis the season of good will for New Line.

The Gotham preem of “Take the Lead” doubled as a fund-raiser for the New York Fund for Public Schools.

“Once you see the movie, it’s kind of obvious why we would choose the project,” said New Line co-topper Michael Lynne. Pic focuses on the work of Pierre Dulaine, a dance impresario who runs a series of ballroom dancing workshops for elementary school kids around the country. (Some of his young proteges displayed their moves at the after-bash at the Roseland Ballroom.)

Lynne’s involvement with Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s cultural affairs advisory commission gave him the idea for the benefit, the costs of which were partly underwritten by Wachovia.

“I’m a public school graduate myself,” he added, “so this really matters to me.”
