CurrentMK Modern at Breakthrough dance competition 2015

MK Modern began when a group of students who were involved in Mga Kapatid's Pilipino Culture Night decided to expand their passion for dance to the next level. From its humble beginnings MK Modern has evolved into a prominent dance group on the UC Davis campus that seeks out fresh, raw talent and new opportunities to add to its continually growing history.

Members come from many parts of California including: Los Angeles, Alhambra, San Jose, Van Nuys, San Francisco, Daly City, Anaheim, Santa Monica, San Mateo, Newark, Alameda, Corona, Diamond Bar, Walnut, Fremont, Torrence, Oakland, Sacramento, Stockton, Piedmont, etc. The diversity of its members always add a refreshing new flavor to the team dynamic and is a true testament to the constant reinvention of this group. The variety of dance styles serve as the medium through which this multicultural family expresses their love for hip-hop. MK Modern prides itself in creating dances that pump up and ultimately entertain the crowds as they continue to give Davis a taste of what's fresh in the dance community.
