This is the first time we have brought together all the students of Streetz Ahead for an afternoon to celebrate their achievements. The children performed their routines, received a medal and finished off with a celebratory disco. This took place in The Great Hall, Latymer School, Edmonton.
We were also overwhelmed with all the very moving speeches:
On Sunday 15th July 2018, Streetz Ahead performed two shows of Boogie Wonderland at 2pm & 7pm at The Millfield Theatre. 300 local children danced their way through a physically energetic, fast paced dance, rap, comedy musical. The Boogie Master has lost her groove and The Whizz Kids are on a mission to help her find it with the help of The Fixers, but Evolon her evil sister and The Erks are stopping her every move.
Written and directed by Elizabeth Lahav with help from the Performing Arts Kids who gave ideas for the concept of the show

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.
This July, Streetz Ahead performed an original production of ‘Generation Blink’ written and directed by Elizabeth Lahav, which is a story of four generations struggling to live together in harmony. The ‘Gods’ are forced to visit earth and find a way to save humanity. Will the ‘Gods’ find a way to unite them and make them realize what is important in life?
