Vincent Paterson is the Hollywood choreographer who created defining moves for stars like Michael Jackson and Madonna. He challenges the myth of self-destructive fame as the road to success with his childlike joy of creation, his tough work ethics and his personal integrity. He is an artist unknown to most people, whose work is seen by millions.
I met Vincent in 2001. I read his bio and realized I had seen everything he had done and yet had never heard of him. Eventually he trusted me to share him with the world and he allowed me fully into the warmth of his life in the Mecca of the celebrity cult.
