Fosse Book Review
He was greatly influenced by Jack Cole and Jerome Robbins.
He often combined different styles, as he did in the ballet sequence for New Girl in Town. The ballet included jazz, the cancan, a gypsy dance, a march, and an old-fashioned English music hall number.
Fosse was a major innovator who, in part, was responsible for developing and creating modern theatre dance.
Fosse introduced his trademark choreographic style by employing the vaudeville styles such as double takes, slights of hand and pratfalls which were spiced up with sexually aggressive styles.
