Power Point contains history on both Gene Kelly and Bob Fosse from early childhood until the height of their professional careers. Includes pictures and Youtube links.
The Gene Kelly portion focuses on his family driven dance style that appeals to masses, verse Bob Fosse's provocative style to appeal the the counter culture movement.
Both choreographers are shown in today's medias (ie Gene Kelly and Family Guy, and Bob Fosse's choreography being lifted into pop music videos).
My students REALLY enjoyed this unit. I used this in a musical theatre class for high schoolers and this is when they really started to get interested in the genre.
