Step into Dance and Soul Mavericks present Battle Educate.
A Street dance battle event for young people from across London and Essex.
Join us for Battle Educate, Step into Dance’s annual festival for young people, celebrating Street Dance in all its forms.
Dancers have been training with some of London’s top professionals as part of the Step into Dance programme to be ready for today’s event. 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 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.
Soul Mavericks is 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.
If you or your dance crew would like to take part please see the Step into Dance website for more information.
Step into Dance is a partnership between the Royal Academy of Dance and the Jack Petchey Foundation, whose support and funding make this programme possible.
