June Fosse Master Classes Had Everyone Sing Sing Singing…..

It was another amazing week of dancing as both our master classes tackled “Sing! Sing! Sing!” from Bob Fosse’s Dancin’.  Dancin’ opened on Broadway in 1978 as a musical revue—a celebration of emotion and movement.  With numbers including “Sing! Sing! Sing!” “Crunchy Granola Suite,” and “I Wanna Be a Dancin’ Man,” it’s no surprise Bob Fosse scored the Tony for Best Choreography.

While “Sing! Sing! Sing!” is quite the marathon of a dance, we were able to reconstruct this syncopated and stylized piece with lots of help from a few guest teachers from Dancin’: Linda Haberman (OBCand Bebe Neuwirth.
