Fosse Week at Broadway Dance Center
If you wanna slick your hair, wear your buckle shoes...and all that jazz, get yourself into a pair of fishnets and shoulder roll your way over to Broadway Dance Center in NYC: The iconic studio is hosting Fosse Week January 27–31!
Every dancer—especially all you Broadway hopefuls out there—should be well-versed in the iconic Bob Fosse style, and now's your chance to study with Diana Laurenson and Mimi Quillin, both of whom trained directly with Bob Fosse and performed in several of his shows.
Here's the schedule for Fosse Week at BDC:
All classes are at Broadway Dance Center's NYC studio
Note: These classes are for advanced dancers ages 16 and older. Regular BDC class rates apply.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns is some SERIOUS #goals. Her strength and power onstage borders on superhuman. But what's extra magical about Mearns is that she really puts in the fitness and cross-training work outside of the rehearsal studio. And she's overcome her fair share of injuries. Which is why she was the perfect source for Vogue's latest ballet fitness story.
Well, this brings class videos to a whole new level! Choreographer Phil Wright and dancer Ashley Liai have been together eight-plus years, but she was still in total shock when he proposed to her mid-dance at Millennium Dance Complex earlier this week. Why? Well, the whole thing was unbelievably perfect.
In the dance industry, dancers don't always have a say in what they wear on their bodies. This can get tricky if you're asked to wear something that compromises your own personal values. So what should you do if you find yourself in this sticky situation? We sat down for a Q&A with "Dancing with the Stars" alumn Ashly Costa to answer that very question. Here's what she had to say about the options dancers have surrounding questionable costumes.
