Raw Aesthetic Movements, also known as R.A.M. Squad, is a hip hop dance student organization on campus. We are an open organization, meaning there are NO TRYOUTS needed to practice with us. We accept people of all dance levels from no experience and up, and are happy to teach anyone the style they wish to learn!
We focus on all forms of hip hop dance, such as bboying/bgirling, popping, locking, waving, house, krumping, choreography, etc.
Our goal is to promote hip hop culture in a positive light at Penn State and educate students about all forms of hip hop dance.
RAM Squad performs at numerous events at Penn State, including THON, PSU football games, homecoming, flash mobs, talents shows, multi-cultural events, Family Clothesline, etc. We have both freestyle and choreographed performances!
We also host dance workshops to educate students at Penn State and have taken classes with professionals, such as, The Jabbawockeez, Brian Puspos (Mos Wanted), Chuck Maldonado (Stomp the Yard), LUAM, Gigi Torres, Chantha Mao, and many others.
