The Verdon Fosse Legacy is jazzed to partner with Broadway Dance Center and offer exclusive training programs designed to promote, preserve and protect the enduring artistry, integrity, and work ethic of Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse. Each program is led by Legacy-sanctioned teachers and protégés—many of whom worked directly with Verdon and Fosse and have taught, lectured, and reconstructed Fosse's iconic choreography throughout the world.
The Verdon Fosse Legacy was founded in 2012. My intention is to promote, preserve, and protect the artistic and intellectual work of my parents, Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse. With a team of top-tier veteran performers and protégés, the Legacy teaches master classes, reconstructs choreography, and curates performances for dance schools, universities, and concert dance companies all around the world.
Dance is an ephemeral art and inevitably morphs and changes over time. In order to preserve my father’s work, the Legacy works to ensure that the original intention of the material is conjured and passed on. It is my hope that this next generation of dancers will not only learn the steps and style so signature to my father’s name, but also the work ethic, storytelling, and integrity that has made it so everlasting.
BDC’s vision to inspire the world to dance and our mission, to uphold and pass on the legacy of Verdon and Fosse, dovetail in this partnership, presenting a summer filled with unparalleled Fosse® training programs for dancers from all walks of life.
We are honored to partner with Broadway Dance Center and to contribute to the revitalization of Broadway and dance in New York City.
