An Emeneth student, who has been street dancing since she was four years old, has launched her own dance school at the Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech.

Brittany Read, 18, is using the new studio facilities at the school to hold four different street dance classes for children from five years up to adults.

Her aim is to bring students up to standard to enter competitions at national and world class level where she continues to compete successfully.

Brittany, who is studying psychology and criminology at Anglia Ruskin University, said: “Dancing has been my life for as long as I can remember.

“My dream is to get people up to a top level. I want to have dance as my interest but work in the field of law - they are two very different things!”

Brittany started dancing with Wisbech-based Ali’s Street Dance and moved to Sarah’s Street Style in March.

She recently competed in the world street dance championships and has performed at the Palladium, the O2 and her Majesty’s Theatre.

Students can turn up on the night to enrol in classes which take place on Wednesday from 6-7pm for 12-15 year olds, from 8-9 for 16 years plus.

On Fridays the classes run from 5-6pm for 5-7 year olds and from 6-7 for 8-11 year olds.
