ASDC

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 age 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.
