Watch Gene Wilder Learn from Baryshnikov

August 31, 2016

While the world mourns the death of Gene Wilder this week, reminiscing over his iconic roles in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Young Frankenstein, jazz choreographer and teacher Bob Boross posted this video on Facebook to remind dancers of the time Wilder brought his beautiful imagination to our community, and shot a scene with none other than Mikhail Baryshnikov. It was part of a 1982 TV special called “Baryshnikov in Hollywood.” The video has, unsurprisingly, gone viral.

We will miss you, Gene.
