Mission Statement

Culture Shock 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.


Culture Shock San Diego (CSSD) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) hip-hop dance troupe dedicated to innovative performance, artist development, and community building.

Founded in 1993, CSSD is the originator of the worldwide network of Culture Shock Dance Troupe, Inc. CSSD has consistently presented urban dance forms with the artistic excellence and professional dedication traditionally associated with ballet, modern, and other styles of dance. Our commitment to hip-hop dance as a highly entertaining, inspiring, and engaging art form is at the core of every activity and program that we offer. In addition to bringing first-rate performances to diverse audiences, we provide unparalleled opportunities for artistic expression and career development for our dancers. We encourage all members of our community to express themselves creatively regardless of their differences, including social class, age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. We provide a positive environment for dancers to experience personal growth, teamwork, and leadership. We are a highly diverse group of individuals who, through the power of hip-hop music and dance, cultivate self-worth, dignity, and respect for all people throughout our global community.

CSSD is comprised 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. Each team provides a unique environment for personal and artistic growth as well as team and community building.
