We believe that the Arts are for everyone. The Arts open doorways to learning, growth, and discovery in ways no other teaching tool can. Our voice and our methods are rooted in the empowering artform of Hip Hop dance, which has the power to speak to youth in a very unique way. Hip Hop is communal, inclusive, individualized, direct, and above all, fun. We truly believe that we can teach any academic or social content through the lens of Hip Hop dance, and we strive to inspire and empower as many youth as we can to take charge of their own education and create their own aesthetic within our arts experiences. We aim to provide lifelong memories of joy, success, challenge, and self-actualization in all of our performances, residencies, and workshops.
