Don’t Be Scurrrd… A Quick Note About Our Dance Classes

So the deal is, our classes are led by friendly, experienced instructors who are about helping YOU unleash and develop your inner dancer. In fact, instructors lead most of the drop-in classes in a mixed level, follow-along format that caters to beginners with minimal experience. If however, you’re a TOTAL novice, we recommend starting with Intro to Hip-Hop (Get Down Break Down) and moving up from there when that feels to slow for ya.

Lastly, we aim to cultivate an ego and drama free learning community where we keep it legit, but low-key. All are welcome, but please check any lurking evil alter-egos at the door. ‘Nuff said.

Went to the House dance class and had an absolute blast! I'm a beginner but felt like it was easy enough to follow. He... jumps right in and I couldn't stop smiling the whole time. So much fun. And also all the people are so friendly. Don't be shy! It's totally worth it. Can't wait to go back.read more

This is honestly one of my favorite things to do in Austin. I go to Hassan’s Wednesday house dance class, and I... don’t think the room stops smiling for more than a few seconds.House music is definitely a niche, so even the fact that this class exists is cool, but to put moves to it the way Hassan does is a blast.Highly recommended. Don’t miss this one.read more

The variety of things to learn through culture bolt is incredible, and Hassan is an amazingly patient, fun, and... creative teacher! Want to move in ways you didn't think you could before? Hassan has come up with some crazy-cool classes. You can groove like a martial artist in Velvet Disco-Karate! You can hip-hop-tap it out to electroswing music in Sneaker Bop (my personal fave)! You can literally turn your world upside-down in Sci-Fi Rodeo!What are you waiting for? Go check it out, get sweaty, and have a blast!read more

These dance classes are the best thing happening in the city! Every class is an uplifting experience and by the end of... the class everyone is high-fiving each other. No matter what your background or experience level, everyone fits in and feels great due to the teachers' welcoming and holistic approach. For the experienced dancer, the versatility of dance styles is bound to bring you to a higher level and make you excited to dance all over again. Besides dancing, you will also connect with a lot of creative and inspiring people!read more

I'll start off by saying that I think Hassan Christopher is a world class dancer/choreographer , but don't be... intimidated- he is very inclusive and welcoming and has a way of getting people in the zone and using their whole body, and making it really fun for all skill levels. be ready to sweat and have an amazing time,even if you've had a crappy tiring day at work,or especially if you've had a crappy tiring day at work- this will lift you out of it, and for me it works out all the aches and pains too!read more

Where do I start, Culture Bolt has literally changed my perception of what dance "should be". The way each class is... taught is set up to leave you feeling like the dancer you want to BE or become. EVERY class leaves me mind blown with what I was able to learn in an hour of time. I have searched to find dance classes around Austin that I connected with immediately, this experience is not only a dance class, but an art form given back to the community in a way where all can learn. From the curated playlists, to the deconstructed choreography, Hassan is a genius at what he does. I encourage all to take a class, it takes one time and you will be hooked!read more

If it weren't for the Get Down class on Mondays I would vote we get rid of Mondays altogether! I had zero hip hop... dance experience when I started a year ago, but Hassan breaks down the moves into manageable pieces so I can always pick up what he is putting down. The choreography is always invigorating and fun. IT is pretty much the best way I can think of to begin the week. One year later, I have grown so much as a dancer. Whether you just want to get some good cardio in, learn rhythm, just have fun dancing or up your dance game this is certainly it.read more

100 million stars! I went to the Get Down Hour on a rec. from a friend, and I am SO glad I found this magical... place/peeps! I was a little nervous since I had been out of dance for a while (especially any hip hop- I am far from hip!), but I was getting the itch to boogy like no mans business, and I am SO thankful I can say I've found my dance home in Austin! Hassan has a knack for getting you into grooves and moves in an elegant teaching style that gradually builds until the moves naturally fall into place. The result is a class filled with dancers of all backgrounds and experience, SO much FUN, and enough sweat to check your cardio box ;). If you're into awesome tunes (the playlists seriously rock- love it when sweet throw backs pop up in the mix), enjoy an endorphin rush, and a good time with good people, then this is definitely for you!read more

Hassan makes you feel like you move like he does, even when you don't. High energy movements that are fun and a teacher... that clearly loves what he's doing! You work harder than you think you will and have a blast in the process. All levels welcome and environment is open and friendly to all levels.read more

The Get Down Hour was my first intro into hip hop dance and I was hooked from the first class. I could instantly tell... that Hassan is not just a dancer or a dance teacher - he is a master of movement. I had no dance experience and no rhythm when I started. I stuck with it, and a few months in I learned rhythm. I learned how to feel the music. My body awareness has since increased threefold, I'm healthier and happier person. To say these classes and this teacher has been influential force in my life would be an understatement. Thanks Hassan for teaching me, inspiring me and giving me the gift of self expression through movement.read more

I can’t express how much I truly love all of these classes! I’ve basically taken all the various styles and if time... allowed I would go to them ALL every week. It’s a great cardio work out while having so much fun (literally I hardly stop smiling in class). When I go dancing now I have more confidence and love to show off all the awesome hip hop moves I’ve learned. Highly recommend to anyone interested in dancing and making new friends!read more

OMG I took a Velvet Disco Karate class last night and I’m so glad I did! That was one of the most dynamic... choreographed routines that I’ve ever learned! So fun, completely engaging and unlike anything I’ve seen in Austin. The cool thing is, Hassan’s teaching style is super encompassing of all skill levels. Kudos!!!read more
