Nelson George Reflecting On Michael Jackson’s Electrifying Stage Performance
March 15, 2019

“Balancing the fluidity of Fred Astaire and grit that brings to mind James Brown, Jackson succeeds in fusing two very different strands of American popular dance – Broadway musical and Black vernacular. By combining that mix with his own, unique interpretations of contemporary street steps, Jackson has become a central figure in the evolution of stage performance -not just here but around the world.” – Nelson George
