Music, Moves, and Mind-Sets is a unique intersection of Hip Hop dance practice and history, and pedagogy applicable for all levels of education. This book addresses how to engage historically underserved learners with Hip Hop art forms. J-Sun deploys his long-term involvement as a break(danc)er to create ways of teaching that not only use dance and music, but also the mind-sets a breaker develops in the cypher (competitive dance circle). He has also compiled one of the largest archives for Hip Hop artistic expressions and pedagogy in print.
