The mission of The Verdon Fosse Legacy is to promote, preserve, and protect the artistic and intellectual property of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. We are excited to announce the inaugural VFL Protégé Program, an invited educational and experiential training for the next generation of teachers and reconstructeurs of Bob Fosse’s choreography.
The Verdon Fosse Legacy would like to welcome Michael McArthur to our newly realized Protégé Program. Michael has been studying, performing, and assisting various teachers at the Verdon Fosse Legacy for several years. He has vast experience working in film and on stage in many disciplines in dance including modern, ballet, and jazz, and has served both as a swing and dance captain. Michael also spent 10 years with the Radio City Rockettes under the direction of Bob Fosse dancer, Linda Haberman.
The mission of The Verdon Fosse Legacy is to promote, protect, and preserve the artistic and intellectual property of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon. Here’s a snippet of Fosse dancer, Candy Brown, sharing how she feels Artistic Director, Nicole Fosse, is keeping this mission statement alive.
The Verdon Fosse Legacy was invited to Wright State University for a week-long immersion of Fosse technique and repertoire with their dance and musical theatre departments. Veteran Fosse dance and one of the Legacy’s leading reconstructeurs, Lloyd Culbreath, and his assistant, Marissa Calabrese, taught daily master classes, participated in a talk-back, and reconstructed “Rich Man’s Frug” from SWEET CHARITY for the department’s spring concert.
“The program, staff, and facility were all fantastic. And the students were incredibly talented. It was an honor and an absolute pleasure to work with such talent and professionalism.”—Lloyd Culbreath
The Verdon Fosse Legacy would like to extend a special thank you to The Musical Theatre Initiative at Wright State University and it’s director, Joe Deer, for making this collaboration possible.
