25 years of Culture Shock LA has been blessed with amazing community, messages, performances, and of course, leaders. 👬👭👫
Our youth programs has generated many leaders in the community today. Our former assistant artist director and outreach coordinator @justin.m.santiago, started off as a @futureshockla member and grew up in the Culture Shock LA organization.
💜 Justin Santiago: “Starting off as just a bboy, I joined FSLA in 2007 where I was introduced to everything I know about the various types of dance and the Hip Hop culture. In 2009, I moved up to Culture Shock LA which I am still a part of today. From 2010 - 2018, I decided to give back to the organization by directing FSLA for 4 years, CSLA board for 2 years and assisted Mighty and Mini Shock LA throughout. Because I was surrounded with such genuinely great people and amazing teachers/role models, it taught me various life lessons and shaped me to the person I am now. I whole-heartledly stand by what Culture Shock LA stands for and owe my dance life to them. I will forever be grateful for the experiences, the sense of fulfillment and most importantly, the family that Culture Shock Los Angeles has given to me. I love ya'll! ❤️"
