PoP Moves Board Member Quoted in NY Times

Takiyah Nur Amin,  from PoP MOVES, was recently quoted in The New York Times in an article about J-Setting, a popular dance form with roots in black culture and the American south. The article highlights the Prancing Elites, an all -male J-Setting group that has courted controversy and celebration  for daring to dance in a form traditionally associated with women. Tracing its diasporic connections, Dr. Amin was asked to provide expert commentary on the form and its history. She is Assistant Professor of Dance Studies at UNC Charlotte.
