CHICAGO! A BROADWAY JAZZ WORKSHOP

Sunday mornings 10-11am in January with Nick!

CHICAGO!…give em’ the old Razzle Dazzle

Making the “headlines” with its 1975 debut and then 1996 revival, Chicago holds the immense distinction of being the longest running American musical in Broadway history and the second longest running musical of all time! What’s not to love?…The music is witty, the characters are legendary, and the choreography is iconically Fosse.

In this 4 week intensive, you will dive headfirst into the world of Bob Fosse and explore the unique style that made him and forever solidified him as the genius he is. Each week you will learn a different number from Chicago starting with the opening sequence and travel in order through the show’s biggest highlights. By the 4th week, you will be able to travel through the show from opening to closing and with your fellow dancers, perform….CHICAGO!
