COMPETITIVE HIP HOP CREWS

WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING AUDITIONS FOR OUR HIP HOP PROGRAM!

Join our premier teams featuring award-winning instructors and choreographers, and a strong program of TRUE HIP HOP, promoting discipline, positivity, empowerment, academics, sportsmanship and commitment. Our Hip Hop teams focus on styles of choreography, bucking, footwork, popping, tutting, smooth-style and more, along with tumbling and various tricks and skills. We train for competition year round and last season won 1st place in our division at Monsters A-List Chicago, advancing to compete at the International Monster of Hip Hop Summer Virtual Finale in July 2020, where we AGAIN placed 1st in our division and also took home the “Entertainment Award” for the entire competition!

This isn’t your basic basement team, this is a true competitive team made up of focused and persistent youth who want to work hard, shine, & SWEAT ALL DAY!
