Culture Shock LA inspires and empowers students throughout the LA community to achieve artistic and personal excellence by providing innovative and progressive training and performance opportunities in the art of Hip Hop dance. Programs include a free Kid's Dance Day and school-based residency programs offered at no-cost to students at sites in under-served areas throughout LA.

Based on a recent study conducted by the Brookings Institution, a substantial increase in arts education experiences has remarkable impacts on a student’s academic, social, and emotional outcomes. In 2019, the World Health Organization’s review of more than 3,000 studies concluded that the arts play a major role in preventing sickness and promoting health across our lifespans. This includes improving emotional well-being, which has become increasingly important after the pandemic. These are just some of the reasons Culture Shock LA works to keep the arts accessible to all children and has continued to adapt programs to meet the emerging needs of young people during these challenging times.
