Versa-Style Dance Company

Versa-Style is a dance ensemble of committed and conscientious artists representing the diversity and beautiful complexity of Los Angeles. The company creates highly energetic work that fuses dances that are culturally significant to our community. These forms include Hip-Hop styles such as 90s Hip-Hop, House, Popping, Locking, Whacking and Boogaloo, and Afro- Latin styles such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia and Afro-Cuban. 

Responding to media’s misrepresentation of these dance forms, Versa-Style specifically aims to perform for the youth of Los Angeles -to instill the roots, history, and social and political issues surrounding the art of their generation. It seeks to empower youth through the movement and culture of hip-hop dance. The goal is to give young artists the opportunity to fulfill their passion in the dance community and to educate audiences on the positivism and roots of hip-hop culture. Versa-Style demonstrates freedom of expression, freedom of individuality, hard work, self-discipline and dedication to the form.
