Adult Dance Programs
Culture Shock® DC has two dedicated adult dance troupes divided by skill level and age. Each provides training and performance opportunities for dancers of various levels of experience and skill. In addition they provide a unique environment for personal and artistic growth as well as a distinct outlet for community outreach and enrichment. Our adult dance troupes are led by a team of talented, dedicated directors and choreographers. Please click below to learn more about each group and their audition dates.

Culture Shock® is our professional-level dance troupe and provides dancers with rigorous training, performance opportunities, and the chance to dance in numerous high-profile events. Many of Culture Shock® dancers and alumni grace the screen and other stages with their awe-inspiring talent and vision. The tremendous respect this troupe has earned in the local and national performing arts community is maintained by the hard work and dedication of every Culture Shock® dancer, past and present. Culture Shock® is composed of adult dancers generally ages 18 to 30. They are divided into two specialty teams who routinely perform together- one team specializing in Hip Hop choreography, the other in Hip Hop free style dance.

Afta Shock® demonstrates that dedicated dancers never cease to be creative and continue to inspire others with the values of Hip Hop culture. Composed of adult dancers generally ages 25 and older, Afta Shock® debunks the idea that Hip Hop is just a young person’s game. The troupe greatly strengthens the Hip Hop community by providing a platform for many older dancers of varying ages and dance experiences to join together and spread the love they have for this art form. Afta Shock®’s style is high-energy, old school Hip Hop, combining dance elements of where Hip Hop started to where and what it is today.
