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. The SDI celebrated it's 20th anniversary in 2018. 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 offered dancers the opportunity to qualify to represent England in the WORLD Championships! In 2007, the SDI sponsored the England team with £10,000 sponsorship and 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.

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.


Every year dancers have the opportunity to qualify in our regular competitions for a place at our Great British Streetdance Finals Day.

Solo dancers in all ages & abilities can win cash prizes. A cash prize will also be awarded to the overall team winner.
