Congratulations to Joshua Bergasse, winner of last night's 2012 Emmy Award for Outstanding Choreography for his work on "Smash." Remember his "National Pastime" routine (pictured)? Check out the video to see his award-winning dancemaking in action.
Bergasse is also an active teacher, based in New York City. Check out his jazzy suggestion for a simple across-the-floor exercise here, and read up on his technique for teaching powerful jazz jumps here.
