King Koi's Story

Koi Roi, an accomplished artist and founder of Indianapolis’s bi-monthly dance battle called MITH, has been an active member of the street dance community for 10 years. From an early age, Koi knew he wanted to pursue his passion as an artist. As an immigrant from Vietnam, life wasn’t easy for Koi and his mother. Despite experiencing poverty and homelessness, Koi’s early exposure to cartoons in daycare captivated his interest in animation, sparking his dream to become an artist. Fast forward 25 years, Koi Roi has made a name for himself in the street dance community, winning battles and sharing information about popping and animation dance. Koi Roi approaches his craft as a student, always seeking to learn more and share his expertise with others in the community.

Koi established a dance club, Ai Get Funky, to assist art students in confronting their fears and developing their confidence in street dancing. Even though the school where the students were studying ceased operating, they still attend MITH events with Koi’s endeavors to advance the dance community.

Art Institute Dance Club called AI get Funky, helping students gain confidence through dance.

Prior to discovering street dance, Koi aspired to work as an animator for a media company. In 2017, he discovered this ambition by securing a position as a full-time designer and animator at a prominent education institution. As art became his source of income, he found himself losing passion for it. However, in 2019, he rediscovered his love for art through designing a dragon for a t-shirt. The design received an overwhelming positive response from the Facebook group, “What’s Poppin,” which led him to establish Street Dance Designs.

How are the Designs made?

At Koi roi designs, the design process involves a systematic elimination process. All designs are initially hand-drawn on paper by our talented designer before being translated to digital format. We take pride in our commitment to authenticity and often seek guidance from the street dance community to ensure that our designs are a true reflection of the intended style. We have streamlined the process and are happy to provide insights into each step of our meticulous design journey.
