WE’RE COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS…

WELCOME TO PHD EVENTS

We are a street dance festival that offers unique learning and development opportunities for dance practitioners, students, creatives and enthusiasts alike. Featuring leading pioneers of original street dances from around the world, we provide exclusive workshops, educational activities and showcases. We explore the different facets of what we call street dance, offering a rare opportunity to learn about original street dances, the traditions that preceded them and their significance in the twenty first century. After the success of our first two events since November 2013, our third edition in November 2014 will take place at a new venue – Black Cultural Archives heritage centre in Brixton – featuring a brand new line-up of world renowned pioneers of dance. Entrance into the PHD Hall at the BCA centre is FREE over the weekend and you can book onto our exclusive pioneer workshops with Popin Pete, Mr Wiggles, Tanisha Scott and Marjory Smarth through our PHD Shop – be sure to book in advance as spaces are limited!
