Experience (events)

Hip Expressions is known for our epic events, inclusive vibe, and inspirational experiences! We are constantly creating performances to entertain and educate, to connect you to to awe and wonder of the worlds we bring together.

Our events all have a super inclusive vibe; come dressed in your best to dance, play, and have fun! For our Productions (larger shows, Tribal Burn, etc), we love having guest artists from all over! If you have something you'd like to present, we accept applications several months in advance.
