The return of American Dance Machine


In the 1970s and 1980s, the American Dance Machine was a major force in preserving choreography from significant Broadway musicals.  Now that idea has been resurrected in the form of American Dance Machine for the 21st Century.
American Dance Machine for the 21st Century, an organization committed to preserving the heritage of musical film and theatre choreography, will stage recreations of work by Susan Stroman, Jerome Robbins, Hermes Pan and Bob Fosse in a Manhattan workshop presentation Nov. 14 at New York City Center.

"Each piece has been coached by artists intimately involved in their original productions," according to ADM21. Numbers from Broadway's Contact, Jerome Robbins' Broadway and Big Deal, as well as the film "Lovely to Look At," will be presented. The evening is directed by artistic director Margo Sappington and will feature live music with musical direction by Eugene Gwozdz.

The 6 PM Nov. 14 show is presented at City Center's Studio 4.
