Society & Culture
Gregory Butler a.k.a. ‘The Body of Broadway’, has staged productions of Chicago, The Musical in Denmark in Moscow, Korea, Germany, the Netherlands, and the U.S., as well as, restaged productions of the show for television, including Dancing With the Stars, and major awards shows (Tony Awards, Bambi Awards) as associate choreographer for 15 years and counting.
As associate choreographer, he has helped stars like Brandy, Usher, Patti LaBelle, Patrick Swayze and Melanie Griffith bring their characters to life. We talk about entering dance through a side door by taking Kung Fu, (which was considered more acceptable), the traumatic event that happened to him at 9; getting accepted - and then asked to leave - The Julliard School and the lifelong work of building yourself into the person you were always meant to be.
This episode was produced and edited by David Neuendorff.
