Istanbul Street Dance Carnival


Istanbul Street Dance Carnival, established in 2009 by Duygu Etikan.
Dancers from all over the world came together for one love called "HipHop". Every year ISDC brings dancers demonstrate the diversity and empowerment fostered through this American art form. Through the event, dance shows, DJ performances, Q/A with judges, workshops for street kids and disadvantaged youth in Turkey are organised.

Istanbul Street Dance Carnival has made a name for itself by partnering with one of the biggest entertainment place; Zorlu Center. The involvement of Zorlu Center is key because it is a highly regarded venue and for street kids to be invited to perform here and watch a performance is a very real bridge across a substantial class divide, arguably a dynamic at the heart of HipHop.

Through the years Istanbul Street Dance Carnival added up with new events such as "SHOWZONE" (Crew choreography competition) and "URBAN SPIRIT-HIPHOP LADIES" (Women choreographers and dancers are the lead)

Thank you to all the dancers who attended and been a part of our journey this year.
