All styles. What originated as an invitation for dancers of all backgrounds to come together for one event has turned into a generation of "all style dancers." What does this term mean, and is it disrespectful to every dance form/culture under the Afro-American social dance umbrella?

The Good Foot Podcast teams up with Dominate from a Distance Online Battle for a second time to interview top practitioners in the street/club dance communities: Tatiana Desardouin, King Charles, and Nubian Néné! Check out Dominate from a Distance on May 15, 2020 at 3pm EDT. Find out how to watch by going to their social media page- @ddonlinebattle.
