Learn how to dance ‘Chicago’ style

Come and learn the style, technique and inspiration behind Bob Fosse’s movement.
Choreographer Tod Kubo will lead an intensive master class that will include the dance styles featured in Piedmont Players Theatre’s upcoming spring musical “Chicago.”
Whether you plan on auditioning for “Chicago” this spring or you just love to dance, this is the class for you.
Recommended attire includes:
Women — All black fitted dance clothing and character shoes
Men — All fitted black dance clothing and jazz shoes.
Since 1993, Kubo has directed and choreographed his way across Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas.
On the west coast, he was critically acclaimed for directing/choreographing productions for the Orange County Performing Arts Center, The Bob Hope Cultural Arts Center/McCallum Theatre, West Coast Opera and more.
Kubo has choreographed and directed such Piedmont Players Theatre hits as “Dreamgirls,” “The Color Purple,” “Spamalot” and “Leap Of Faith.”
He will also be choreographing “Chicago” this spring.
Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, the musical is based on a 1926 play of the same name by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she reported on.
The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the “celebrity criminal.”
Bob Fosse choreographed the original production, and his style is strongly identified with the show.
The Broadway revival holds the record for the longest-running musical revival and the longest-running American musical in Broadway history, and is the third longest-running show in Broadway history having played more than 6,700 performances.
