"Culturally Defined" is a street dance company, based in Vancouver, Canada, that invites dancers from all walks of life to experience and strengthen our shared passion for dance. Our main goal is to create a strong understanding of the foundations of hip hop culture and street dance styles through educating our students in Hip Hop, Locking, Popping, House, BBoying, Waacking, and more. We aim to fully expose our dancers to many forms of movement by providing them with intensive training from our established directors, elite faculty, and international guest instructors. Throughout the program, our students learn to polish their technique, follow and create choreography, develop personal freestyles, improve personal health, and challenge themselves with becoming a versatile and creative individual.
We are happy to announce the coming of our 5th season with the dance family that has become Culturally Defined!
