Amazing teachers and all the kids are so happy here.
My daughter have been dancing here for the last 2 years and she can't get enough of it. The choreography is amazing and she has been learning so many new tricks in street dance. Honestly we are so happy we did found this studio as many places kids only learn basics and every performance cost a fortune.

Mollie Buttfield

Streetz Ahead is such a fantastic dance school. The teachers are amazing and put so much time and effort into helping all the students develop. You honestly become part of the family and Michelle wouldn't have it any other way. The school has created such an atmosphere that makes everyone keep going back. Everyone can go there and train for fun or can use the fantastic training opportunities that Michelle and her team provide for her students to experience what it is like to work in the dance industry. After 13 years of being part of the Streetz Ahead family, I couldn't think of anywhere else that I would want to dance at!

Georgia Harper

My son has been dancing with Michelle and Ashley for over 2 years. When he started he was fairly shy, he wasn’t sure about taking part in dance shows etc. He started with the tumbling class.
2 and a bit years on he now does tumbling and street dance and he has taken part in the Lord Mayors show in London twice, a low level show and he is excited about performing in his first proper show this year.
Michelle and Ashley have been encouraging and helped build his confidence and skills.
He tried a few different studios before feeling settled here.
A lovely bunch of kids and teachers and I would highly recommend.
