Global Fosse Festival

Global Fosse® Festival

11 master teachers. 7 famous guests. 12 professional demonstrators. 24 hours of Fosse®.

The Verdon Fosse® Legacy is jazzed to partner with Broadway Dance Center for the inaugural Global Fosse® Festival! This six-day Zoom series--targeting multiple time zones--enables everybody (dance professionals, performers, students, Broadway lovers, dance aficionados, and Fosse® fans alike) from around the world to come together and learn Bob Fosse's signature stylized choreography from some of the most sought after Legacy-sanctioned reconstructors. 

Come learn, dance, and engage with the incredible performers who worked directly with Verdon and Fosse. Register for a single two-day session or up to all three sessions (six days total), as the teachers, repertoire, and Q & A guests will be unique each day.

Each four-hour session will include

  • Welcome from Founder/Artistic Director of The Verdon Fosse® Legacy, Nicole Fosse.
  • A dynamic warm-up focusing on isolations and basic ballet/jazz technique
  • Two unique master classes where everyone will hear stories of Fosse® dancers while learning authentic Fosse® repertoire from both stage and screen
  • Live Q&A with very special Verdon/Fosse® guests
  • #FosseFriday -- On the final day of the Festival (Friday, March 19), we welcome everyone from the entire week to join back on Zoom and perform an excerpt of Fosse® choreography together with fellow participants from all over the world.
Not a dancer, but a huge Fosse fan? This festival is also for you! The Global Fosse® Festival is your chance to try Fosse choreography and connect with your favorite Fosse® icons. Everyone is welcome!
