My Jookin' Conversation With Lil Buck


Friday on PBS, I chat with Charles "Lil Buck" Riley, a dancer who's been called the Baryshnikov of jookin'. He's taken the freestyle-based street dance, involving intensive footwork, to the world stage.

In the following clip, Lil Buck recounts how his collaboration with famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma came to be.
