Memphis Jookin': The Show

Direct from Memphis, Tennessee, where a local street dance became an international phenomenon.

Renowned dance artist Lil Buck conceives, choreographs, and performs in a new show called Memphis Jookin’: The Show, an ode to Lil Buck’s hometown of Memphis—birthplace of the singular dance style known as Memphis Jookin’.

The show takes us on a journey to the fabled city to chronicle how the art form emerged from local street dance to international phenomenon.
