About us

Our History

Since its establishment in 2005, Urban Artistry has humbly presented the international dance and arts communities with a renewed perspective on urban dance and arts. Drawing from the creativity of its founders, directors and international roster of members and affiliates, Urban Artistry has grown from the vision of one, to the mission of many. Though UA promotes education in foundational movement and history, these culturalists operate from the understanding that- culture is not stagnant; it is a living breathing entity that accepts change. However, growth does not mean one has to forget where they come from.
