Held multiple times a year, the Versa-Style Let The Music Move You community dance battles brings dancers and supporters from all over Los Angeles together to engage in friendly competition and social dance. These events are held at a low cost to the community so youth are encouraged to attend and be a part of true hip-hop culture.
Our largest event of the year, the Versa-Style Annual Hip-hop Dance Festival, which is held in partnership with the East Los Angeles Performing Arts Magnet, is a 2 day event open to the public. We provide free dance workshops before the main event on Day 1 and personally invite all of our LAUSD K-12 partnership schools to attend. Day 1 of the event focuses around our battle, where local and international dancers put their skills to the test in a competitive setting. Street dance pioneers are invited to judge and showcase on Day 1, then teach workshops on Day 2. Students are encouraged to participate in both days of the event, so we provide admission for both days at a low cost.
