Dance Like Everybody's Watching: An Interview With Choreographer Vincent Paterson Comments (0)

Madonna fans know Vincent Paterson as the choreographer who worked on her “Express Yourself” video, her Marie Antoinette “Vogue” extravaganza for MTV, her Oscars performance of “Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)” and also as the man who directed and choreographed one of her greatest projects, the Blond Ambition World Tour.

 

More recently, he was the subject of the outstanding documentary The Man Behind the Throne, which detailed in particular his work with both Madonna and Michael Jackson.

In truth, his career encompasses many things outside of the King and Queen of Pop.

Now, Paterson is preparing an autobiography, and he is appearing one night only in a talkback called Dance Films Presents: An Evening with Vincent Paterson (get your tickets now!), during which he will speak about six or so of his most famous pieces—and give all the dish on what made them work. He will also detail what it was like collaborating with the household names who executed his fancy footwork.
