Jadyn “Smooth” Nathan


Nathan’s family moved from Boston to Mem­phis when he was three years old, and the city’s dancing culture caught his interest right away. He started taking lessons, and by age six was training at one of the first jookin’ academies, learning from the city’s finest. Soon. Nathan was competing in local battles, and now, at 18, he’s one of the city’s finest young jookers. Nathan won the 2021 Memphis regional Red Bull Dance Your Style event and competed in the national finals in Washington, DC. He feels that Memphis Jookin’—The Show is the next step: “I’m ready to just to keep going. Any opportunity that’s after this, I’m ready for it!” @iamjadynsmooth
