street dance festival

Destructive Steps is an annual street dance event held in Sydney, Australia. 

Over 3 days, we run a festival of competitions, workshops and performances to celebrate our community and culture.


A Sydney Hip Hop event first started in 2009. It is an annual street dance competition held in Sydney, Australia that invites international dancers from around the world: Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, USA, New Caledonia and South Korea to compete against Australia’s best dancers in the categories of Bboy/bgirl (Breaking), Popping and other street dance styles. Since 2011 Donna Viengkham has also stepped in the main roll to direct and produce the growing event that is fast becoming the biggest street dance event in Australia. 

In 2015 the DSDA inc. was founded as a Non-Profit organisation to formalise the organising of the event and also utilise the vast resources and network built over the years to better the street dance community in Sydney and Australia. The event however, is now considered by most as the biggest street dance event in Sydney and most likely Australia.


We run competitions for a variety of street dance styles. These include breaking, popping, hiphop, locking, waacking and more.


We celebrate the DJs, MCs, music, art and fashion – elements of Hiphop culture that brings this community together.


We bring together people from all ages, nationalities, religions and cultures in one place to meet, share and foster the community, including the younger generation.


We invite international dancers from around the world to share their craft and knowledge to inspire and grow our local community.
