The festival is regarded as the first to exclusively offer dance classes, panel discussions, and performances. Some of the seminal and legendary teachers at Illadelph included pioneers like Don Campbell of The Campbell Lockers, Mr. Wiggles, Ken Swift, Crazy Legs, and international artists such as Meech from France, Hiro from Japan, and Eva Shou from Denmark. The festival explores the art, tradition, and dance vocabulary of the various styles, including Popping, Cracking, Locking, House dance, Waacking, and vogue. Legends of Illadelph is the first street dance festival to highlight and promote technical classes and seminars on the history and theory of street dance, young and old.
