Stylin' Out was formed in 2009 as an American Breaking Crew based in Chicago, IL. Reunited in 2018 as a competitive and performative force, Stylin' Out comprises a network of cultural producers including DJs, dancers, and visual artists.
We believe that there needs to be a shift in the perceptions of street culture due to cultural disconnection and manipulation.
We exist to break down these preconceived judgments and deliver fresh perspectives that do right by our community.
We see a world where people no longer look at the arts we create as a hobby that has little chance of success. They’ll be looked at as reputable paths of pursuit.
We see a world where culture is not just for the taking. It’s what you invest into it–to nurture, shape, and cultivate the world we want to live in.
The true impact we hope to make is through the legacy of passing down all that we’ve learned, done, and embodied, so that future generations can be armed with the knowledge and tools to carry on the beauty of amplifying culture.
We are the collective Neoteric that:
+ bridges cultural gaps for the disconnected
+ exists as a platform for local, underrecognized talent
all while creating habitats for EVERYone to thrive in.
