“The Complex“ is a Street Dance Studio in San Diego, California that was created to teach the art of Breaking, Popping, Locking, House, & Hip Hop Dance Foundation.
The idea of “The Complex” sparked when local standouts, such as Cros1, Eddie Styles, EraNetik, Lancer, & RoxRite, came together to discuss about opening up a dance studio in San Diego, CA. A dream they all had growing up as bboys, because they would get over looked and unaccepted by various traditional dance studios, community centers, and public locations. They wanted to have a place where bboys, just like them, will always be welcomed. After finalizing the idea, they then asked three of their close buddies to assist them on this project, Shyism, RawKen, & Felix. With the help of Dave Ventura, owner of Und1sputed North Park, The Complex partnered up with Und1sputed to turn the gym into not only a “Fight” gym, but also a Hip Hop Dance Facility. You can best describe the facility as a place that teaches the art of fighting and the art of street dancing all under one roof. The Complex hopes to spread the authenticity and positivity of Hip Hop culture and dancing to the community and inspire the youth.
