Culture Shock Programs

Culture Shock is a network of nonprofit dance companies that brings the power and beauty of hip-hop to diverse audiences. Indeed, we offer professional entertainment, dance education, and community enrichment programs.

Culture Shock San Diego consists of four dance troupes. Dancers and choreographers with various levels of experience and skill benefit from training, rehearsal, and performance opportunities. Auditions are held twice a year for each troupe. In addition, each performs at various venues and events and all take part in an annual nationwide choreographers’ showcase. During this event, Culture Shock dance troupes from around the world convene for a full weekend of performances, training, and community building.

Our professional troupe provides dancers with rigorous training, paid performance opportunities, and the chance to dance in many high-profile events. The highlight of its season is the creation and performance of a full-length theatrical, which is performed at major venues. Many of Culture Shock’s dancers and alumni grace the stage and screen with their awe-inspiring talent and vision. The tremendous respect this troupe has earned in the arts community nationwide is kept alive by the hard work and dedication of every Culture Shock dancer past and present.
