Culture Shock® Chicago is a hip hop dance organization dedicated to innovative performance, artist development and community enrichment, revealing the power and beauty of hip hop to diverse audiences. Our performances allow us to share our art form through dance and music-exposing audience members to the rich history of hip hop and it many cultural influences. Hip hop culture serves as our platform for expression and transcends a multitude of boundaries. We seek to produce innovative, relevant, meaningful and diverse artistic works by being inventive and uplifting. True to the very definition of our name, Culture Shock challenges the unfamiliar, breaks down attitudes and views on life and culture and finds direction in the midst of social chaos. Our dancers embody these ideals as they are all races, all genders, all sexualities, all equals, all one. Culture Shock Chicago keeps its audiences balancing on the edge of where culture, society, movement and dance intersect.
