Our Journey Begins
back in 2014 with a 10-year old BBoy named Zach aka BBoy Zero. Zero began breakin’ classes in Fishers, IN with a local dance studio, and soon began entering battles and competitions. At the same time IUPUI continued to host one of Indiana’s largest street dance events called “Battle Ground Zero”. This event brought in dancers from all over the country to help judge, host and help coordinate this event, including Keegan “Seoul” Loye (31Svn founder).
‘Seoul’, originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan has been an active part of the Street dance community since 2005. In that time has found a way to make a living off of his dance competing, performing, hosting, judging, and teaching.
Seoul came down to Battle Ground Zero to host the event. While his crew, 61Syx Teknique came to compete and won the breakin’ portion of the event! After the event, Seoul was able to connect with Zero and his family and explained to them that he and his crew owned 61Syx Street Dance Academy in Grand Rapids Michigan. A Dance studio that has specialized in spreading knowledge and the love for Breakin’ to students since 2010.
Zero and his family began to make the bi-weekly trip up to Grand Rapids to begin taking lessons with Seoul and be a part of the already growing kids’ Breakin’ scene in Michigan. After almost 2 years, Zero became a part of a student-based crew through 61Syx and began taking his Breaking more seriously. His family recognized this and were eager to try to convince Seoul to bring what he had to Indianapolis.
In 2017... WE MADE THAT JUMP
Seoul, Sandy, and their puppy Letty moved down to Fishers in early 2017 and began to lay the groundwork for Indiana’s ONLY street dance academy. As the connections grew, and the support began to pour in from different members of our scene which soon turned into 31Svn CREW.
On February 1st, 2018, 31Svn Street Dance Academy opened its doors for the first time to the community here in Indianapolis and within our first 3 years, we have already established ourselves as one of the Indy area’s premiere Dance studios. And your ONLY Indy-based Breakin Crew!
Since our birth
31Svn has lead the way when it comes to Street Dance in the Indianapolis area. Openings its studio doors to Thousands of students across the Indy area, and street dancers of all styles from across the world. Being sure to keep the integrity of the culture alive, and continue to push the scene forward, 31Svn SDA has brought many events, battles, and workshops such as Battle Ground Zero, IN-Vision, and War and Chreece.
Remaining active members of the Hip-Hop community are such an integral part of growing as a dancer, and our crew continues to lead by example by competing and winning battles across the midwest, as well as partnering with different small businesses, and organizations who invest themselves into the students who need dance and Hip-Hop in their lives.
We’re so lucky to be able to share the floor with so many young and talented dancers that walk through our doors, and we love to be able to share our knowledge with the next generation of Indianapolis Street Dance Community!
