10-month program.

This program is the heart of Culturally Defined. Throughout the 10 month program, students build an incredible repertoire of dance vocabulary, freestyle and performance skills, and experience impressive growth through the commitment and support of one another. Dancers will train in a variety of street dance styles at an intermediate/advanced level. This program will challenge dancers to develop their individual freestyle and choreography, strengthen their technique, prepare for and participate in local battles, and perform across the city. Expect classes with high intensity and feedback from teachers. All this training will be showcased in our highly anticipated year end show, which features a selection of student choreography. 

6hrs weekly. Audition required.

This training group is a committed group of 16-18 dancers who explore movement and develop their personal style through training across multiple styles. 

I have experience in some styles, but zero experience in some of the other styles mentioned. Can I still join? 

Absolutely! We love when dancers are willing to learn and explore something completely new. We highly encourage dancers to keep an open mind when training and expect effort, not perfection. 

Is there an audition required? 

Yes, you do have to audition for this 10-month program. We look for dancers who demonstrate commitment, open mindedness, cooperation, respect, and effort.
