........DVD Description........

Enjoy the innovative choreography of Eugene Fleming whose Broadway career spans more than a decade. This Savoy Strut is a combination which captures the very essence of theater dance. The Strut is reminiscent of the 1940ís when Harlem was in its heyday. Its smooth, sleek, tight movements allow the dancer to express the exuberance of the era. This choreography is best suited for the beginner to intermediate dancer.

Danny Herman teaches a classic jazz combination that is a tribute to the legendary Jack Cole, the choreographer who virtually invented the theatrical jazz dance idiom. Mr. Cole developed an entirely personal mode of jazz-ethnic-ballet that prevails as the dominant look of and technique for American show dance. Jack Coleís unmistakable style endures in the work of Gwen Verdon, Bob Fosse, Jerome Robbins, Gower Champion, Peter Gennaro, Michael Bennett, Matt Maddox, Tommy Tune and countless dancers and choreographers. Develop your knowledge, skill, discipline, enthusiasm, stamina, body strength and understanding of comedic movement. This choreography is suited for the intermediate to advanced dancer.

A Vaudeville Charleston is a dynamic theatre dance style incorporating the energy and performance of classic musical comedy. This dance, choreographed by Andy Blankenbuchler focuses on personifying the sharp, humorous and exciting accents and rhythms of this particular period of music. Isolating tight drum hits, lengthening through the long wail of a trombone, or shaking to match the syncopation of a piano run, this choreography offers the dancer a clear blueprint for building an exciting performance from the 1920ís. This choreography is best suited for the intermediate to advanced dancer.
