Daring Dances and the Center for World Performance Studies team up to premiere two short videos featuring Gabrielle McLeod, Detroit’s ‘Queen of Jit’. The watch party will start with a dance tutorial commissioned by Daring Dances as part of the "Daring Dances for Surviving and Thriving" series. After participants have had the chance to work up a sweat, and work out some footwork, we'll follow with a short video of curator Clare Croft interviewing Queen Gabby, created as part of the CWPS “Performing the Moment, Performing the Movement” series, and have an opportunity for Q&A with Clare Croft and Gabby McLeod, moderated CWPS Graduate Fellow J’Sun Howard.

An acclaimed dancer and choreographer from Detroit, Queen Gabby is an ambassador and tradition-bearer for her hometown dance style. She teaches, performs and competes internationally, and iis known throughout the Midwest for her amazing footwork.
