VS Next Generation
“If Hip Hop has the ability to corrupt young minds, it also has the ability to uplift them.”
Versa-Style Next Generation Program
Versa-Style Next Generation is a group of highly dedicated young dancers from the Los Angeles area. The program offers the opportunity to participate in a pre-professional Hip Hop dance experience. Students are introduced into the Streetdance community through their engagement in community performances, travel performances, and events such as competitions, festivals, productions, dance intensives and classes in hopes for them to connect to global Hip Hop dance culture. Students receive personalized dance mentorship from VS:PEC Teaching Artists, in addition to Versa-Style Dance Company Principal Dancers.
Are You The Next Generation?
Participation in VSNG happens through a yearly audition process that’s part of a one-week Summer Intensive where students are immersed in the Versa-Style Hip Hop Dance curriculum. However, students who show high levels of dedication and growth at the Friday Dance Classes may be offered the opportunity to join the next generation upon individual evaluation.
Member requirements are as follows:
- Age range of 15-21
- Plans to pursue post-secondary education or professional work as a dancer
- Weekly attendance at the Friday Night Dance Classes
- Weekly attendance at Sunday and Tuesday rehearsals
- Participation in Streetdance community events
- Nominal monthly tuition fee
Every child has known God.
Not the God of names,
Not the God of don’t’s,
Not the God whoever does anything weird.
But the God who only knows
And he keeps repeating them, saying:
“Come dance with me.”
