Award-winning musical opens tonight at Centennial Hall
Bob Fosse's choreography may be legendary, but it's definitely not perfect.
And that's just the way he intended it, said LaMae Caparas, a swing-dancing cast member of "Fosse," a celebrated musical which redefines the works of the famed choreographer.
"He (Fosse) played on his imperfections," Caparas said. "The reason why some of his choreography was turned-in was because he was pigeon-toed and he had slouched shoulders."
Fosse's style can be awkward for ballet dancers because it requires being "turned-in," rather than the more formal "turned-out" body- and footwork of ballet, she said.
