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.

Many of our events are inclusive; come dressed in your best to dance, play, and have fun at our Drum Circle and ArtWalk Hafla. 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.
