Learn Hip-Hop @ UMBC


From the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) campus comes the Hip Hop group, Major Definition. Originating in 2005, this dance company works on committing to the education of the hip-hop history and culture, and fostering of artistic talent and expression through music and dance.


The dance company has been a contender in all the major dance competition around the DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area. Some of the members of the company even went on to compete in America’s Best Dance Crew under the group, the Boogie Bots.  Having competed in the dance scene for some time, they have gained a notoriety in the dance community.


Major Definition continues to encourage students of the dance and hip-hop community to passionately pursue and further develop their talents both in person and group choreography, freestyle and performance. While they still compete and ever-growing, Major Definition still holds true to their statement of educating people of the culture and fostering artistic talent by hosting free community workshops every week. Every Monday at 7:30 PM, they host a dance workshop on the University campus in the commons area. Showcasing a new choreographer each week, they keep the workshops fresh and learning more.


If your ever looking to learn some hip-hop I encourage you to attend their workshop. Also if you want to learn more and see when their next auditions are, check out their tumblr, facebook, and twitter for updates and information.

WHERE: UMBC Campus, Commons Main street, 1000 Hilltop Road, Baltimore, MD 21250
