Jit Master Mike interview - DJ mixes by DJ Ace & DJ Fluff

For the third show of the year, Anxious Beat had the amazing pleasure of having an inspiring conversation with brilliant dancer, teacher and mentor - Michael Smith a.k.a. Jit Master Mike of Jit Masters (Detroit dance school and company).  Michael starts his story at a young age seeing people jit on the streets and corners of his neighborhood while also being fascinated watching his older cousin - Lee a.k.a. Turbo Lee of the group Unseen and the current Anonymous Jitters - skillfully express and perform this regional dance style and how he became a student at Detroit School of Arts (formerly known as Detroit Fine & Performing Arts) attending the dance department by a fluke, almost like it was his destiny all along. 

 

Michael shares his thoughts and experiences becoming a teacher and mentor - teaching dance to both kids and adults at Jit Masters, Jit culture and history, battle mode, Jit in Detroit clubs, Chicago Juke as well as outlining some of the different styles of Jit. We also get to learn more about Michael’s journey - rediscovering his passion for dance after being away for a long time as a way to feel better and eventually help others feel better, how to create pathways between older and younger generation of jitters as well as his philosophy and stance on how to perserve and further this Detroit dance for current and future generations. Hear all about that and much much more as we also get to enjoy 1h x 2 straight up reckless Detroit mixes by local techno shamans DJ Ace and DJ Fluff313!
