Choreographer jumatatu poe’s Let ‘im Move You: This is a Formation, created with Jermone “Donte” Beacham, tours to a number of US cities this summer. The evening-length dance centers on the artists’ explorations of J-Sette—a dance form with origins in southern drill teams and made popular in the gay African American club scene.
