Versa-Style Dance Company creates highly energetic work that fuses dances that are culturally significant to local communities. These forms include Hip-Hop styles such as 90s Hip-Hop, Popping, Locking, Whacking, and Boogaloo, and Afro-Latin styles such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, and Afro-Cuban. Versa-Style specifically aims to perform for the youth of Los Angeles County to instill the roots, history, and social and political issues surrounding the art for current generations and is dedicated to providing enriching opportunities through dance education. Through Hip-hop dance, students utilize their creativity and ingenuity to develop their individual voice. With direct mentorship, students develop an understanding of hard work, dedication, and communication skills.
