SEASON 2 2014/15


CD presents:
IN-House Experience

June 21st, 2015

A big thank you to everyone who came out to our year end show, the IN-House Experience. Our goal was to bring a cozy and interactive experience for our audience with a small venue as well as including snacks, great music and a social feel to the night. It was incredible to watch all our members grow through out the year with new knowledge and applying to their various dance styles and talents. Thanks to our amazing staff, JP Tarlit, Natasha Gorrie, Amie Hasegawa, Tony Giroux, we had an incredible year. We are very much looking forward to our next coming year and to constantly raise the bar. The IN-House Experience.

Locking Class

March 15, 2015

A really great class containing fundamental Locking training and ways to use movement from other styles and apply it to Locking. Great energy and great training.

Big thanks to Boombeast for sharing his knowledge and passion.


Tal Iozef
Locking Class

March 12, 2015 / April 16, 2015

We are very grateful that we had the opportunity to have Tal Iozef teach twice for us this year while he was in town. Teaching fundamental movement in Locking & Hip-Hop with his own personal flare, gave the students something more to really work with. Always a great time of learning while Tal is instructing his class or even outside of class.

Thank you Falafel Lock for sharing your knowledge and the energy you immerse people with around you. 


Jr. Boogaloo
Popping CLass

Culturally Defined would like to thank Jr. Boogaloo for bringing his knowledge and incredible energy into our class. This was a class where we couldn't get enough and just wanted to keep going for hours. It was great to see everyone in the room just get down and show off their talents with Jr. Boogaloo. 

Thank you again for coming out and showing your love and passion with us.


Krump Class

Culturally Defined would like to thank Lil Tight Eyez for bringing his knowledge and skill of Krump dancing and helping it expand here in Vancouver. It was nice seeing everyone just get out of their comfort zone or get into their comfort zone and just dance. 

Big thank you for coming out and showing us what you do.
