Streetz Ahead is a registered charity that provides subsidised performing arts training for young people from 4 to 18 year olds. Courses, events, classes and healthy living programmes are taught to in excess of 3,000 young people every week. Our pledge is to maintain low fees and offer young people a rich and rewarding experience that aims to develop self-confidence through stimulating and inspiring opportunities. We offer specialised courses including performing arts, music, drama, dance and our unique flashmob fitness programme. Our classes take place in schools, after school clubs, colleges, youth clubs and 6th form centres. We annually produce three full- scale musical productions and public dance events. Streetz Ahead was founded in 1995 and received charity status in 1999.
Join the Streetz Ahead family, learn to dance and take part in a range of different events throughout the year. Take a look below at some of the amazing events Streetz Ahead have organised:
We run our classes during term time in a
relaxed and fun environment which lead to
full scale musical productions two-three times a year.
Our classes develop self-confidence through the
power of performance. Friendships are formed
and our students stay with us year after year.
We take pride in being able to offer pathways
in the performing arts to young adults. We provide
work experience weeks for secondary schools.
Work placements for young people. We also offer voluntary
roles for adults.
We regularly perform at festivals, dance events,
fairs and organise flash mobs. Performing at these
events is a great way to build confidence, perform
to family and friends and get experience in performance
Streetz Ahead celebrates 20 years!!!
Most enjoyable and everyone was enjoying themselves including my granddaughter and it was her first show Well done everyone.
“We all (including the 2 and 6 yr olds) loved the show. We were particularly impressed by the fact that the kids were able to perform on a real stage in a proper theatre. An amazing experience particularly for those whose school theatre facilities are minimal at best. The standard of performance was higher than we expected and some of the teenagers in particular were very talented. Special mention for Cool Guy, Geek Girl and Boy and Fish Man! Lilly had a lovely time and really enjoyed her performance. We are very proud of her and her other Coleridge dancer friends. Elizabeth Mackie (Lilly Walker’s mum)”
