Description

Part of: The Milwaukee Show

As the world was shutting down due to COVID-19, a team of Milwaukee based and nationally respected creatives were in the British Virgin Islands shooting "Champion Style: A Dance Film By Jade Charon." This powerful short follows Milwaukee rap star Ray Nitti as he goes back to his native island of Tortola to learn about the origins of an Afro-Caribbean dance called "Bamboula." Told through the choreography of Milwaukee and UCLA trained dancer Jade "Charon" Robertson, the film illuminates how dance can be a tool used to help free Black bodies. Music by Bizness Boi. Filmed by Philly Fly Boy
