CultureShock San Diego consists of four dance troupes. They all provide training, rehearsal, and performance opportunities for dancers and choreographers with various levels of experience and skill. Auditions are held twice a year for each troupe. All troupes perform at various venues and events throughout the year. Every year, they all take part in an annual nationwide choreographers’ showcase. During this event, our dance troupes from around the world convene for a full weekend of performances, training, and community building.
