Koi Roi has been an active part of the street dance community for 6 years being one of the pillars of his scene. He’s the founder of Indianapolis’s only bi-monthy dance battle called MITH (Money in the hat). He’s also won a few battles from all styles jams, popping jams. Koi has always looked at this art as a student. Always willing to share information regarding popping and animation dance.
Koi put together a dance club called Ai Get funky that helped art students face their fears, and grow their confidence to street dance. The school that the students went through closed it doors, but til this day, those students still show up to support MITH and Koi’s efforts to grow the scene.
Koi has always been drawing from an early age. His dream before finding street dance was to work as an animator for a company that made a difference. He’s achieve that dream working as a full time designer and animator for the head quarters of a huge education company in 2017. But because art was what he did to make a living, he’s lost passion in it recently. It wasn’t until he had the idea to draw the dragon design to turn it into a shirt was when he found passion for it again in 2019. Then when he designed the tut diagram shirt and saw a huge positive response from the facebook group, What’s Poppin, it was then that he knew Street dance Designs was what he needed to do.
What are his goals now?
To share this culture with as many people as he possibly can. To help inspire a new generation of dancers and artist.
