Founded in 2005, Los Angeles-based Hip-Hop dance company, Versa-Style Dance creates highly energetic work by fusing dances that are culturally significant to our community. These forms include Hip-Hop styles such as 90’s Hip-Hip, House, Popping, Locking, Whacking, and Boogaloo, in addition to Afro-Latin styles such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, and Afro-Cuban to name a few. As a reaction to the widespread media misrepresentation to these dance forms, Versa-Style specifically aims to perform for the youth to instill the roots, history, and social/political issues surrounding the art of our generation.
Hip-Hop breaks color lines by creating a forum where people come together for a common passion rather than grouping themselves by race or socio-economic backgrounds. Versa-Style demonstrates freedom of expression, freedom of individuality, hard work, self-discipline, and dedication to the form.
