How did JJ-Street Baltic Session get started? One of the pioneers of street dance in Estonia and the creator of the festival, Joel Juht aka JJ, started this event from the love for street culture. He saw difficulties in the Estonian street dance scene in 2007 and wanted to make things better for everybody. Hard work and passion brought together people who shared the same vision and ideas. Today you know them by the name of JJ-Street Crew. The team always gives their best to help street culture grow in a positive direction and make JJ-Street Baltic Session a globally known festival. This event is meant for everybody who has love for dance and the culture.
