Executive Producers: Keith G. Myers, David Christopher Loya, Steve Arroyave
Geron "Caszper" Canidate grew up in the 70s in Santa Ana, California locking and popping in neighborhood dance-offs, at schools and at dance clubs. Every week he and his friends would watch Soul Train and dream of one day dancing on the show.
At the age of 17, Caszper was chosen by Jeffrey Daniel, from Shalamar, to appear center stage on Soul Train and who should see his performance, but his idol, Michael Jackson. Caszper performed the ‘backslide’ in his routine and Michael was so taken by this move that he contacted Caszper to get him to teach it to him. The ‘backslide’ became the ‘Moonwalk’ and Caszper's life changed forever.
Beyond the Moonwalk is an inspiring true untold story and an explosive pop-culture odyssey, set in the early era of hip-hop dancing, that has influenced many artists and performers to this day.
