VFL Protégé Program

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.
