Experience the highest level of street dance training

all under one roof
Workshops and Performances
Here at Pioneers History Dance, we are committed to bringing you inspirational dance workshops led by carefully selected pioneers, who each bring with them the highest standard of dance and teaching to our events. Alongside our workshops, we run freestyle jams, dance battles and performances that showcase original street dances from various countries. We also collaborate with world renowned DJ's, MC's, beatboxers, grafitti artists and spoken word artists.
We recognise the importance of legacy in art and culture and strive to create unique learning opportunities through exclusive panel discussions, seminars and film screenings. Previous films screened at our festivals include Everything Remains Raw: Hip-Hop Dance In Context, A Way Of Life and Yo! To The Twilight Firm. Our panel discussions feature a range of UK and international artists, producers and academics who are leading pioneers in their field.
Hip-Hop culture is one of the most significant cultural movements of modern times and many artists and photographers have captured its essence through their work since the inception of hip-hop in the 1970's. We seek out pioneers of innovative art and photographers who have documented the elements of the culture over the years, offering an insightful and engaging experience for our attendees through celebrating their achievements.
