Matildz

Matildz

In March 2017 Streetz Ahead performed ‘Matildz’ like you have never seen it before! A hip-hop adaptation of dance and rhyme with 200 talented young people – a fantastic show full of energy and hugely talented children.

Parent Testimonials

Thank you Olivia, Elizabeth, Harry, Kate and everyone at Streetz ahead for your hard work and efforts in putting on such an amazing show. From Olivia’s meticulous emails and reminders to Elizabeth’s creativity and imagination, everything was clearly well planned and enjoyed by parents, families and the children who took part. Thank you once again and can’t wait for the next show 🙂

Omg what a fantastic show tonight! So proud of all the children, we were completely blown away with the whole production and organisation! A huge thanks to Elizabeth Lahav & Olivia Lahav Wakeford and the entire Streetz Ahead crew for all their hard work! We have two exhausted kids here who I know will never forget their first ever stage performance! Who knows what lies ahead for them now they’ve got Streetz Ahead in their lives!

Streetz Ahead Supporter Big Yellow

I am pleased to say I attended Saturdays show, with my plus one and we both agreed it was amazing. All your extremely good work and hard efforts, paid off. Well done. It’s such a wonderful thing for the kids to do gets them out the house off their games consoles and gets them socialising from such young ages. Again thank you for the invitations and I hope to attend future performances. Keep Up The Good Work Guys!!

We like to support young people in their careers, so we had a film & media student called Day Gibson who put together a behind the scenes glimpse into a Streetz Ahead production.

Streetz Ahead were invited to join the Parade of Lights in Enfield which circled 2 miles around Enfield Town. The kids sang out Matilda songs as they paraded down the streetz on their brightly lit up scooters – The Enfield Mayor even joined us for some cha cha slide ! What a fantastic event – we will back next year!

We did a dance demo which was great fun and a great way to warm up.

Then at the end of the day Streetz Ahead received a ‘Highly Commended’ award for ‘Improving the lives of children and young people in Haringey’
