04. Taking J-Setting From Underground Clubs to the Main Stage


 

Leland and his dancers make an HBCU historically rooted dance style their own in this Emmy Award winning love letter to Dance and Atlanta helmed by Fr3deR1cK for KQED in San Francisco. J-Setting dancers bring energy, precision and stunts to the floor, and the Dance Champz of Atlanta are trying to take this underground LGBTQ+ art form to the next level. Leland Thorpe and his team are on a mission to get the underground version of the dance form taken more seriously in the wider dance world.
