Entertainment, Education, and Enrichment.
CSSD consists of five dance troupes, each of which provides training, rehearsal, and performance opportunities for dancers and choreographers with various levels of experience and skill. Auditions are held every year for each troupe. Each performs at various venues and events and all take part in a nationwide choreographers’ showcase every October, in which Culture Shock dance troupes from around the world convene for a full weekend of performances, training, and community building.
Culture Shock – 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.
Future Shock - Our apprentice company provides youth (ages17 and under) with substantial experience studying and performing urban dance forms. These dancers train on scholarship and are mentored by our company dancers. The family environment fosters teamwork, respect and positive self-expression. Future Shock dancers are required to maintain satisfactory grade point averages and participate regularly in local community events.
Mighty Shock – A hip hop training company for performers 13-years old and under.
Mini Shock – A fun way for children 7-years and under to grow through hip hop dance.
Afta Shock - Non-professionals 25 and over debunking the idea that hip hop is a young person’s game. This newly formed team greatly strengthens the hip-hop community.
