In 1997, the seeds of Hip-Hop were planted at University of California, Riverside forming the 909 Hip Hop Dance Troupe. Representing Riverside, CA, 909 opens its membership to all dancers in the community. For over a decade, 909 has created an image that is recognized and respected for its connection to UNDERGROUND hip-hop music. Although the team has evolved throughout the years, 909 respects its roots in underground hip-hop and continues its expression to the masses through originality, tradition, unique styles of music, and the art of dance. Entering its 17th year of existence, 909 will continue with its legacy for years to come.
