The New Orleans Original BuckShop is an enthralling master class series that immerses participants in the culture and Diasporic traditions of Black New Orleans. Michelle N.Gibson focuses this masterclass series in her own “New Orleans Second Line Aesthetic " that involves improvised movement, interpretation, defined footwork and full body articulation, brass band music, and the embrace of communal ritual. With hips leading the torso and feet, legs bent at the knees, and steps that strut, Michelle N. Gibson shares her lived experience.

The New Orleans Original BuckShop and the work of Michelle N. Gibson serve as the bridge between communities and academia, highlighting the importance of art as a lived experience and lifestyle.
