Happy #ConversationsTuesday! DanceWear Corner is the proud sponsor of the “Conversations on Dance” podcast. Hosts Rebecca King Ferraro and Michael Sean Breeden were in our stores this past weekend for master classes to celebrate our anniversary! But this week they are back at it sharing tons of new content from their recent trip to Vail for the Vail Dance Festival. For their bonus content from Vail, click here.
This week Rebecca and Michael are joined by Ron “Prime Tyme” Myles: Jookin dancer and ambassador. Originally from Memphis, Ron is a dancer, choreographer, and an ambassador for his dance form called “Jookin.” He is now based in Los Angeles, is a Bessie Award winner, and has appeared in numerous commercials including some for Pepsi and Adidas, and was a part of Beyonce’s epic visual album, “Lemonade.” Memphis-born street dance prodigy and world-famous jooker, Charles “Lil Buck” Riley is Myles’ cousin, and together the pair is working to get Jookin into the main stream. They have also been a corner stone of the Vail Dance Festival for years, and are a favorite among audiences. Today Ron tells us about Jookin and the trademark quick footwork, how he got discovered, and why spreading Jookin around the world is his priority.
