Culture Shock ® Chicago is a not-for-profit corporation involved with hip hop dance in Chicago. We have a simple but powerful mission statement: "Culture Shock® utilizes Hip Hop & urban dance culture to cultivate education, enrichment and entertainment to inspire positive change in the communities we serve." Our community enrichment programs are designed to give Chicago youth, along with their families, a chance to enjoy hip hop dance as a positive and fulfilling activity. We strive to create opportunities where young adults can feel confident, empowered and successful. This year, Culture Shock Chicago will be hosting the 2019 International Choreographer's Showcase in September.
