Carolyn Kirsch (Broadway veteran, teaching "Never Stop Moving: A Fosse-Style Jazz Workshop for Older Dancers") returns to DanceMasters Weekend following the Master Class she taught in Crowell Concert Hall in 2012. Ms. Kirsch appeared in fifteen Broadway musicals over a 21 year period, during which she worked extensively the director/choreographer Bob Fosse, appearing in both the first national and Broadway productions of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," "Sweet Charity," and the first national company of "Chicago," in which she played Velma Kelly (the role originally created by Chita Rivera). In 2012, Ms. Kirsch became the first person to be sanctioned by the Verdon-Fosse estate (by Nicole Fosse) to teach the styles of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon.
