“Elizabeth last Saturday was our first experience of the Streetz Ahead show and we were so impressed. Young and old enjoyed it equally and it was great to see so many kids up there having fun and dancing so brilliantly. On a personal note, Katie has only been with the group since January, but the welcome she received and the ease with which she was able to become part of the group and learn the dance routine is a credit to your organisation. I know she is looking forward to carrying on and learning more as she continues with the classes. Many thanks to you and Lulu! Claire Garrill (mum of Katie, Coleridge school ).”

Just wanted to congratulate you both on another great show! The kids were amazing.

So much for you to organise too, really well done and a very big thank you from me and Eliza

@streetzahead congrats on tonight’s fab show!

The confidence you give the kids & the energy they bring to their performances is fantastic!

Amazing show tonight – Thankyou so much to Elizabeth Lahav Olivia Lahav Wakeford – Emilia loved doing the show – excellent production as always xx

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!

Great show tonight! Well done all!

Amazing show tonight …lily you really shone.. thank you to Streetz ahead who really have made it possible, lily really owned her part and that’s down to the coaching and time put in by a fantastic team xx mrs wormwood, Matilda xx

What a proud mummy I am. My two girls performed brilliantly and very professionally at their Matildaz Street Dance show! Well done girls I love you loads! Xxx Prince’s Bar Enfield

Hope you are getting a well deserved rest just wanted to say thank you to you all. Our girls had a brilliant time and looked so happy 😊😊

It was just brilliant, well done all of you for a truly fantastic show. And now relax and hope your kids have remembered it’s mothers day! X

Congrats to you on a brilliant show! It was a fabulous performance – the children were all amazing – they had so much energy and talent, and looked like they were having a ball! It was so well organised too. Kenza thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being part of the show. Thank you!

Thank you again for a wonderful show.  Both my girls really enjoyed it and came back buzzed and excited about next term.  Your enthusiasm is amazing.

Dear both, I wanted to say well done for putting on such a great show – I’ve heard really positive feedback and from the bits I saw it looked great – can’t wait to get the DVD. Also, having chaperoned at ballet as well as streetz ahead over the years, I wanted to say that this time it did seem like the easiest show! It appeared to be seamless! And Liz you manage the rehearsal (which must be pretty stressful!) without making the kids pick up on that which in turn makes it fun for them which has definitely not been the case in some ballet shows I’ve been back stage for! Well done to you both and the whole team. Charlotte x

Also, I would like to take this opportunity to say that you and the team did an amazing job with the show!  It was fantastic and the kids were amazing!!

It was a fabulous show, Congratulations to all involved and the children of course!

It was fantastic. Loved every minute. And so did all the parents in the audience. And the deputy mayor! Well done – don’t know how you do it. Just wonderful.

Great confidence booster for the kids.

Inspired my nieces who I bought to the show so two more for you soon.

I loved the show it was amazing.

I came as a guest but it made me think about getting my son involved with Streetz Ahead.

As a poet performer and father it was great to see the confidence in the children flourishing.

Fantastic – Keep doing what you are doing.

What a fantastic experience for both children and parents. So much of hard work has gone into creating such an amazing show. Thank you.

Thank you so much for all your efforts.

Elara has really enjoyed coming to Streetz Ahead. Thank you.

Today’s show was FANTASTIC Beautifully choreographed. Well done to you all.

When I saw my daughter in school I never expected such an amazing performance. Thank you so all organisers for their efforts and patient. I loved it!! 5 stars.

People couldn’t have been nicer. All the other parents and helpers made us feel very welcome and the children had a really great day.

I think this term gave the kids so much more confidence as I watch every show.

 

Dear Olivia, thank you for the last term hard work and the fantastic show your team organized.

Thank you for a brilliant day yesterday – you & Elizabeth must be proud too (& knackered!).

Natasha- St Andrews mum

We have seen a few Streetz Ahead shows, they are always great fun, well produced and the kids always have massive smiles on their faces throughout. Anything to help put on more of these shows should be done.

Love No Evil

Seen quite a few over the years. This one is by far the best, the format worked – better than each school performing. The music was great – not too street but street enough.

Well done guys – truly the best one I’ve seen and I’ve been quite a few!

Just wanted to say – WOW…!  I can’t put into writing how brilliant it was in so many ways. Thank you – for all your hard work, patience, creativity and energy put into that production.
My friend Clare who came, who has no children …so seeing it from a complete outsider’s point of view was BLOWN AWAY and “smiled the whole way home”. You need to “package” what you created there.

This is so inspiring – seeing young people talented performers – it was brilliant and should really be encouraged. Well done Streetz Ahead!

Love No Evil

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)”

“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”

Matildz Student Testimonials

Thanks so much to you, Liz and the whole team behind Streetz Ahead, the show was amazing!
I absolutely loved it and Connie did too. She went through such a roller coaster of emotions yesterday and was telling me she felt frightened and nervous but then the dance went so quickly and she wanted to do it all again! It’s such a great way for her to experience these emotions and gain confidence with such fab, lovely people around her. She was asking before bed yesterday when the next show was and was disappointed it was so far away especially as Annie is one of her fave films and Oliver is mine!! I’m so glad she’s started Streetz Ahead!

Verity - St Andrews

“Loved the show the best one I have seen. Loved the story line although I am not a Michael Jackson fan, if I see kid dance to him again I will lose my mind lol. Shame some of the schools have left but I am glad Harris kept Streetz Ahead going. Can’t wait for the DVD so I can see it again! Well done to you and your amazing team. Can’t wait for the next one xxx”

Keira Reid- Harris Academy

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.

Raemelia - St. Michael

The shows were fabulous. Utterly brilliant. Well done to all the performers for their energy, efforts and talent. Well done to all the Streetz Ahead staff for being inspirational and supportive for our children. I’d also like to say a BIG (no pun intended) thank you for tackling this show as it’s message is such an important one. ‘Integration not segregation’ says it all, and so pertinent too. It’s important for children & young people to acknowledge size difference too and at a time when fat shaming is sadly on the increase, it’s fantastic that this show brought that into the performers’ and audiences’ consciousness and awareness. The script was so clever and at times, very moving too. (As well as hilarious). Elizabeth Lahav you are an inspirational woman. Thank you. And Olivia Lahav Wakeford thank you for being you too. Well done!!
