Competitive Hip Hop

 

 

Hip Hop Dance Teams Forming Now!

During our inaugural year in 2006, we began to develop and grown a vibrant and dynamic Hip Hop dance program.  Each team, each season, has a unique routine that they learn and compete in local and out of town competitions.  All of our Hip Hop teams (Youth, Junior & Senior) have been invited to prestigious invite only competitions: The Dance Worlds & The Dance Summit. 

Our history speaks for itself ~

  • In our third year, our Senior Hip Hop team, the Saberz, earned an invitation to the 2009 Dance Worlds Competition in Orlando, Florida. They have since earned the invitation in 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017,  2018 & 2019.

  • Since 2015, the inaugural year of The Dance Summit, our Tigerz have earned an invitation to the invitation only competition. They were the only team in Missouri invited to this competition every year since 2015.

  Our Hip Hop Coaches

 How did we develop the best Hip Hop Dance squads in the St. Louis Area?  It's simple. It's our leadership.
