"Drawing on the grounded strength of modern dance, the vivacity of Afro-Caribbean dance and the meticulousness of ballet, Fagan’s technique lends itself to feats of balance, which seem impossible until you see them with your own eyes." - Gia Kourlas, The New York Times

The Tony Award-Winning Choreographer of  Disney's The Lion King on Broadway

Millions around the world have seen Disney’s The Lion King, the stage version of the beloved cartoon feature.  The choreographer behind every movement on stage?  Garth Fagan.  The musical swept the Tonys in  1998 with awards for best musical, direction, scenery, costumes and lighting design. Recently celebrating it's 25th anniversary last February, Garth Fagan now remains as the longest running Black choreographer on Broadway!

Sid Smith, Chicago Tribune
