Lil Buck and Jon Boogz have quickly become the two most visible dancers and choreographers of our time. Their talent and artistry has impacted millions of people, entrancing viewers with a visceral pulse of emotion and deep sense of social justice. For the very first time they are teaching a two day retreat and workshop, unlocking the essential components of the Memphis dance style of “jookin” and “popping” – two of the many dance techniques behind their craft. Attendees will leave with some serious skills, deep inspiration, and a close connection to these extraordinary artists and their remarkable journey.
Lil Buck and Jon Boogz are the founders of M.A.I. – Movement Art Is – an organization that uses movement artistry to inspire change in the world. We believe that movement art is the universal language that can help break down social, geographic and economic boundaries, and unify us all. Dance has not been given the proper platform to reach its full potential artistically, and as a tool to improve our world.
