La Guardia High School conquers “Sing, Sing, Sing”

Congratulations to the dancers of La Guardia High School’s senior showcase.  The Verdon Fosse Legacy was honored to reconstruct Bob Fosse’s “Sing, Sing, Sing” (DANCIN’ 1978) for the show’s finale.  Lloyd Culbreath and VFL protege, Alyssa Epstein, reconstructed the entire 13-minute work.  La Guardia’s band provided invigorating live orchestration for this musically magical piece of choreography.  Here are a few highlights from the performance. Thank you to Gregory Sinacori and the La Guardia dance department administration for making this possible.  (Photography: Scott Allen, Costumes: Keiko Voltaire)

 

The dancers will revive their show-stopping performance at this year’s Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival in early August.  Stay tuned for more!
