Our Mission

Dance Styles Expo was founded in 1997 on the belief that all forms of dance essentially serve one purpose, to express one's soul in an artistic manner.

Today, many dancers are segrated, classified, and unjustly grouped into different categories of dance such as; modern, hip hop, jazz, house, etc. Our goal is to unite dancers from various styles, backgrounds, ethnicites, and ages. We strive to highlight the beauty of these different forms, preserve their roots and traditions, and educate people on the history.

Additionally, we would like for dancers to cross train in new disciplines and for the audience to be open minded and appreciate other styles. This will ultimately expand the ability of the dancers and provide the opportunity for dance to evolve.

Furthemore, we will be showcasing martial arts as an effort to display the many over looked similarities of movement and degree of dedication that one must commit themselves too.

Finally, the event will feature a health fair, art gallery, and fashion show because all these elements are closely related to the world of dance and are vital to the life of any individual.
