LIL' BUCK: REAL SWAN

SYNOPSIS

In the ghetto where Lil'Buck grew up, what goes around comes around.

 

Now, bringing his experience in the ballet world with him, Lil’ Buck is heading back to South Memphis to teach dance to the youth, offering them the chance of a better future. Returning home to the town where he first learned to dance, Lil’ Buck will lead us through the streets as he recounts his personal story and the history of Jookin. the Memphis dance that gathers the people of South Memphis together.

 

Through his eyes, we discover an amazing community - violence and poverty are everywhere but dance is keeping them alive and proud. Lil' Buck is a figurehead for all, a living embodiment of the truth that dance can change our perception of life and give birth to the hope that can lift us out of social deprivation.
