Experience how Memphis Jookin' emerged from local street dance to international phenomenon in this free matinee for students in grades 7-12.

Renowned dancer Lil Buck became a YouTube icon after director Spike Jonze uploaded a video of his improvisation with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Now he pays homage to his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, where the local street dance known as Memphis Jookin’ became a sensation. Lil Buck, eight extraordinary dancers, and a live DJ chronicle the dance form—and evoke the energy of the streets.

Lil Buck conceives, choreographs, and performs in this original stage show that takes the audience on a journey to the fabled city where Memphis Jookin’ was born to document how the artform emerged from local street dance to international phenomenon.
