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!!!
Great show for all the people that joined in showed great effort. It takes kids off the street. This is needed.
Even though I don’t have a child at this dance club as I live in St Albans I very much enjoyed watching my niece Olivia Sailing perform for her first time. It was a fantastic performance! The energy of all the children is amazing!! And you can see the dedication in all of their faces is very impressive. The progression is very evident from the youngest performer to the oldest. Excellent.
“I thought the show was great. It was fast moving so not to get bored. The actors were great and the script was very very funny. I thought the man behind me was going to wet himself as he was laughing so much. The venue was great. The only down side for me was that the actors were miming. I have a real thing about miming. The kids really enjoyed it. Great show overall x”
I thought it was an amazing show. Very enjoyable and fun. Great story and cast. Well done!
This is so inspiring – seeing young people talented performers – it was brilliant and should really be encouraged. Well done Streetz Ahead!
I have been to numerous shows now and they have all been great! Keep going! We can really tell how much the kids enjoy it.
