Ebenezer Testimonials:

“I would like to say a big thank you for the amazing show on Sunday. I can see how much hard work the kids and you have put in .I don’t have the words to describe all my emotions (cry, smile) and I saw that into my daughter’s eyes as well((Ivanela).She was more then exited and she said:Mum I will never ever quit Street ahead and one day I will become and a dancing teacher.” How cute is that when I was a little I attended a dancing school for nearly 10 years snd I know what she means. Thanks again and I am so proud of you guys .I could see the kids they were dancing with their hearts .Xxxxxxx”

“My son regained a great deal of his self-confidence and his belief in his ability to work as part of a cohesive team. Street Dance taught him that he was allowed to shine and that not everywhere was run on institutional racism. Here is an environment where children of all shapes, sizes, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds could meet on grounds of true equality and learn to work not only harmoniously together but in support of each other and the greater wellbeing of the group. This charity makes a huge change in the lives of these children who will in turn help to continue to make changes for the better in our communities and society as a whole.”

My Two Weeks at Streetz Ahead

My Two Weeks at Streetz Ahead

My name is Laura Ellis and I’m 15 years old. I currently attend Enfield County School and chose Streetz Ahead for my year 11 Work Experience. I heard about Streetz Ahead from my mums friend who has children within the company and thought it sounded amazing. When I am older I am interested in owning my own business so gaining an insight into how this business is run has been very helpful. Throughout my two week experience I completed multiple tasks including all the organisation behind the business and the upcoming show. Whilst at Streetz Ahead I especially enjoyed helping with set design and even making my own prop! I also loved looking through the script and help edit it so a spectacular show can take place. Not only was I working in the office, but for both Tuesdays I attended the Millfield House to help assist with Auditions. This was a very enjoyable experience as I was a fresh opinion on roles for the kids so I could help assign roles for the show. Liz and Olivia have been amazing towards me and they have always been there if I was unsure or had any questions. I would most defiantly recommend Streetz Ahead for work experience and as a company in general. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and can’t wait to hopefully assist in the show and future classes.

‘Matilda is full of hilarious moments & highly energetic with an incredibly talented cast. It takes you on a roller coaster of emotions. We highly recommend that you go and see it and ask us when you are going, so that we can let you know if Seby will be in it!’
