Icons and Instincts: Choreographing and Directing Entertainment's Biggest Stars by Vincent Paterson with Amy Tofte is a fascinating dive into the heart of the world of dance. After coming to dance late in life, an exceptional turn as a lead dancer in Michael Jackson's Beat It music video, and much hard work, Vincent became a choreographer and director for the world's greatest singers, as well as cinema and musical comedy.
We have been honored to have Vincent speak with our members several times; now everyone has access to his stories and wisdom. Icons and Instincts is now available and authors Amy Tofte and Vincent will sign pre orders when ordered through RareBirdLit at the link below.
#DLWConnects was an 8-day series of live-streamed and archived conversations crafted for and by theater directors and choreographers that took place at beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, in May of 2020. All events were recorded and are available HERE.
