Phoenix New Times' Description

This popular Westside venue, located just across from Metrocenter Mall, is devoted to street-level art forms—by which owners Danny "Scooby" Morales and House Magana mean it provides space for performing and practicing the art of b-boy and hip-hop dancing, graffiti art, DJing, emceeing, and skateboarding. Both men are founding members of the Furious Styles Crew dance collective, and have led the local hip-hop scene since the mid-90s. Cyphers (which takes its name from a street term meaning a group of b-boy dancers, slam poets, or emcees while they’re performing in public, and is subtitled The Center of Urban Arts, natch) functions as a dance and deejay studio during the week, with classes and seminars on breaking and popping and mixing disco vinyl. This one-of-a-kind clearinghouse for all things hip hop continues to thrive and to give street cred to art forms that, especially outside urban areas, get little attention.
