about us

DSDA is a nonprofit charity organisation made up of members from the Sydney street dance community, dedicated to promoting and spreading the positive ideals of Hip Hop.   

DSDA originated from a small local jam in 2009, organised by President and Founder Jo Hyeon Yoon, who simply intended to bring dancers together to exchange and have a good time. The jam was called Destructive Steps and as the years went by, gradually grew into the standout event it is today – Australia’s biggest annual street dance festival.

 Since then, DSDA was officially established in 2015 as a non-profit association. Aside from striving to elevate Destructive Steps every year, DSDA now also works to run more community events, including collaborating with local councils and other organisations.
