Two Memphis jookers (urban dancers) and two ballet dancers fuse their dance styles to a soundtrack that mixes hip-hop beats and cello at a famous Memphis juke joint.

“Bookin’” recreates and showcases an historical cultural fusion, not only through its unique score that blends classical elements, with hip hop beats, but primarily through dance. Throughout the shoot, the film’s ‘jookers’ and ballet dancers learn from each other, inspire each other, and blend their respective dances to create, in their words: Bookin’.
