Step into Dance

Join the programme

Battle Educate 2019

Join us for Battle Educate Step into Dance’s annual festival for young people, celebrating Street Dance in all its forms. This year guest producers Soul Mavericks have programmed an exciting mix of workshops, performances and an all-important opportunity for crews and individual dancers to battle it out in front of a packed audience. Look out for announcement for this year’s special guest/s.  

Battle Educated is open to all young dancers across London and Essex with a flair for street dance, to come together learn from professionals and put their skills into practice in an authentic Battle, a core part of street dance.  On the day, you’ll see the crews battle to be the 2019 winners in All Styles (Hip Hop) and Breaking. There will also be prizes for Best Dancer, Most Promising Dancer and Best Throwdown.

This year's event is produced by Soul Mavericks - a collective of talented dancers each bringing their own style, experience and energy. Established in 2005, the company aims to represent UK Bboying to the highest level, by competing and performing both nationally and internationally.
