The great jazz dancers Al Minns & Leon James often worked with the historian Marshall Stearns to educate people on the history of jazz dance.
A few years ago I had the idea to do a similar educational clip about the history of Caucasian social dancing, a topic very few scholars would be interested in. Luckily, my film-making partner Nick Williams and I found some: good friends Javier Johnson and Shani B helped us explore the overlooked history of one culture’s contribution to social dancing.
