Haleem “Stringz” Rasul

Haleem “Stringz” Rasul began his dance career in the mid 1990s with a concentration on breakin’, hip hop’s original dance form. After exploring dance in other communities across the U.S., Stringz gained more appreciation for Detroit’s own dance innovation, the Jit. As a dance, the Jit combines high-energy footwork and arm syncopations that can be done both standing and on the floor, creating a dynamic aesthetic all under a unique groove. According to Stringz, “This is Detroit’s hip hop dance.”
