Michael Jackson got his dance moves from the Snake !

Bob Fosse (1927-1987) was a musical theatre choreographer and director. In the 1950s, he produced choreographies that were eclectic in their choice of genre: jazz, Charleston and the more traditional styles from Europe. Among his greatest successes as a choreographer were Cabaret (1972) with Liza Minnelli and Chicago (1975), which ran for two years non-stop on Broadway.


Bob Foss also jointly choreographed Stanley Donen’s 1974 film version of The Little Prince and played the role of the snake. 

The video link opposite  features Foss’s performance: his costume and dance steps bear a remarkable resemblance to a certain Michael Jackson.




Take a look at the video that compares Foss’s work with that of Michael Jackson.
