We are excited to welcome Robert La Fosse to our roster of teaching artists.

Mr. La Fosse was invited by Jerome Robbins to join the New York City Ballet in 1986 as a principal dancer after a nine-year career with American Ballet Theatre where he danced leading roles in many of the full-length classics. During his career with NYCB, Mr. La Fosse originated the role of Tony in Jerome Robbins’ West Side Story Suite.

For the Broadway stage, Mr. La Fosse starred in Bob Fosse’s Dancin’ and Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, for which he received a 1989 Tony Award nomination for Best Actor in a Musical.

In addition to his performing career, Mr. La Fosse is also an established choreographer who has created over 75 works for ballet, opera, musical theater, film and television.

“Give me something to dance about and I’ll dance it.”

When I’m creating educational programs for our students at Art Without Borders NY, my goal is to get them to learn from the best professionals, respect the others, and have a memorable experience. I always remind them to be prepared and be on time, because like George Balanchine said “There is only now. Right now.”
