SDI ( street dance international ) is an organisation of professionals striving to bring Street dance/Hip Hop to the forefront of today’s world.
We are a democratic organisation operated by a voluntary committee who run their own successful dance schools and are more than aware of the adversity parents and students face in the current climate. Our mission is to keep Street dance/Hip Hop affordable for all families, as well as accessible to every child, while providing opportunities that no other UK based
organisation can offer.
We aim to assist in creating responsible teachers who have a
thorough understanding of the dance style they teach, hence,
the SDI is very proud to offer the first Street dance Professional syllabus & qualification.
Although conceived some years before, the SDI (Street dance International) was finally set up at the end of 1998 by founding members Jane Hollis, Derek Povey and Sharon Hollis and now, with near on 400 professional members, the SDI celebrated it's 10th anniversary in 2008. Since 1996 when the first street dance event was held, the Street Dance style has continued to grow and in 2008 there were some 40 SDI events held throughout the UK. Our annual UK CHAMPIONSHIPS are always a highlight and they offer dancers the opportunity to qualify to represent England in WORLD Championships! In 2007, the SDI sponsored the England team with £10,000 sponsorship and has each year since sent the best dancers from England to go to the IDO World Championships, with over 3500 championship dancers and over 7000 spectators everyday over 5 days.
