Charles “Lil Buck” Riley brought international attention to the street dance Memphis jookin’ in 2011 when a video of his improvised performance with cellist Yo-Yo Ma—who declared Lil Buck a “genius”—went viral on YouTube. Since then, he’s blown audiences away performing with Madonna at the Super Bowl, New York City Ballet, and Cirque du Soleil. Now is your chance to learn jookin’ from Lil Buck himself. In a free and wildly fun, high-energy workshop, Lil Buck will instruct participants in jookin’, the art of improvisation, and more.
