Community Enrichment

The Culture Shock family has grown from its base in San Diego to cities across the United States and Canada. Each company is individually operated to implement the Culture Shock mission of entertainment, education, and community enrichment with the unique needs of its community in mind. Each company has up to five dance troupes serving a diverse range of ages, skills, and goals.

Dance Education

The Culture Shock concept—to bring the urban dance form into the professional dance arena and then let that influence go back the other way—has now inspired several generations of hip-hop dancers. Bunch touts the addition of break dancing as a key moment in the history of Culture Shock. “That was the big blossoming for Culture Shock,” she says. “To pull the two genres together: the original and the ‘commercial.’”

Community Involvement

Created in 2002, the Washington, D.C., branch includes Culture Shock, Future Shock, and Mighty Shock.

Every Culture Shock outpost operates as an independent, nonprofit entity. And each company relies on the generosity of donors and volunteers to carry out its mission. Please visit a specific location to learn how your support will be most valuable to it.
