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! I've since explored all types of new dance styles that Hassan offers, and I am hooked (Velvet Disco Karate-what!?)! 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!

I love all of the classes Hassan offers! Always a highlight of my week. In addition to learning some sweet moves you’ll also make friends, smile, and laugh. Highly recommend!

Culture Bolt has been a game changer in my life! The choreography is dynamic and fun! Hassan is a very talented dancer and a great instructor! He has an impressive background in dance/choreography and I am grateful he is here in Austin to share and create with us! Between bringing the community together, affordability, and the range of being able to teach all levels, Culture Bolt has got it going on!

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!

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!
