Ricardo Carranza

Ricardo Carranza, Street Dance master teacher
Ricky is an entrepreneur and formidable dance teacher, mostly in street dancing, including break-dancing. He has extensive experience as a professional dancer, choreographer and filmmaker. To date, he has made two dance films about street dance, 'Beyond, HipHop' and 'Beyond the Block', which are fast becoming standard-bearers in dance education circles/institutions.

Both his masterful dance teaching and the film making capabilities combine well with the SeTs' core expertise in Parkour, self-defense (+security & risk management), fitness and strength training to create formidable combined art training (CAT) programmes in collaboration with his own association, SDI ry (Style Dance Industry). He is the founder & owner of several annual film and dance festivals from Hollywood and Los. Angeles to Norway, Finland and beyond.

You can find more information about him and, SDI ry, in his own words from the StyleDanceIndustry link in the left-hand column of these pages.

Despite our wide range of current abilities, we are always seeking new ways to combine and develop our programmes, products and service delivery methods.

Together there is very little we cannot achieve, making us a hard combination to beat.
