HEART Education

I HEART Fosse Workshops are about teaching the language of the renowned choreographer Bob Fosse to the community of Hilo. Teaching this style will cover the vocabulary of fosse, from gentle hip rolls, to sensual snapping, sharp and isolated movements, and most importantly, to connect with the dance and theater community here in Hilo.

Each class will cover a separate dance from Bob Fosses library of works. 

Each class will focus on a different routine from a Fosse show. For example we will cover ALL THAT JAZZ in one class and Sing Sing Sing in another class. So you can take all six classes - which, again, are free - OR just come to one. If you miss a class - you won’t be behind - because each class is a totally different routine.
