[I got sick halfway through vacation, and I'm still getting over everything (the medicines hit me as hard as the illness). Regular blogging, hopefully, will resume later this week.]
We've never found this dance on YouTube before so I want to post it before it disappears. It's the "Manson Trio" dance from the musical, Fosse - though it originally comes from Bob Fosse's musical, Pippin. Here's what I wrote about this dance (featured in a commercial for Pippin) in a post about Ben Vereen and the NC Symphony:
I first saw Ben Vereen on the small, black and white TV with upstate New York antenna-on-top-of-house reception. In other words, small and fuzzy. He was in an ad for Pippin: "These are two minutes of Pippin. Come to the [theater] to see the other eighty-eight". That ad started my life-long fascination for the choreography of Bob Fosse, and my life-long appreciation for Ben Vereen.
Last winter, our wonderful Broadway dance teacher taught us this dance - lots of fun! It was requested by one of the students... (Okay... me).
