‘Behavioural challenges are a national problem.’ – The Guardian
- Ofsted have mentioned in recent report that children lose up to an hours classroom time due to bad behaviour. Streetdance offers an outlet for such children to channel extra energy, and express themselves in a creative and ‘COOL’ dance style to relatable and accessible music. Not only will it help them to connect with their identity, their bodies and their peers, but the positive effect will transfer into their classroom learning.
Dancers are challenged to reach for personal goals and attain their personal potential through hard work and determination, and nurture positive competitive values.
- We set up workshops for your Gifted and Talented student’s, to push them to the next level and help them reach their full potential. We build competitive crews that train at elite levels for local performances, festivals or competitions.

Rebuilding after the COVID-19 Pandemic
“A Report from Young Minds showed that 80% of young people with an existing mental health problem felt their mental health had worsened during the first weeks of the Coronavirus pandemic… The vast range of experiences that the children have had is a challenge in itself. Inequalities experienced, particularly during the weeks of school closure, will be felt for the foreseeable future, as gaps in attainment, physical and emotional health will have widened.” mentalhealth.org
