Alesha Dixon to Host New CBBC Street Dance Contest

Alesha's Street Dance Stars

Strictly Come Dancing judge (and previous winner) Alesha Dixon will soon be hosting her own dance show on CBBC called Alesha’s Street Dance Stars.

The 10 part series is seeking to find the best young street dance talent in Britain, and will see Alesha scouring the nation searching for a new dance star.

Dance crews of up to 12 young street dancers will battle it out in a series of auditions, rounds and finals with one crew winning both the title of Alesha’s Street Dance Stars and an as yet undisclosed “money can’t buy prize”.

Alesha said: “Street dance has taken the nation by storm and I am delighted to be fronting this brand new series showcasing the UK’s most talented young crews.”

Damian Kavanagh, Controller of CBBC said: “Alesha is the perfect host for the series, she knows what it is like to have to judge and be judged on dancing skills, is a fantastic dancer and our audience adore her.”

The series will feature a panel of judges, including award winning choreographer Kenrick Sandy, internationally acclaimed dancer Lizzie Gough, and street dancer Turbo who has worked with the likes of Madonna and Will Smith.

Two of the members of street dance crew Diversity (Perri Luc Kiely and Jordan Banjo) will also feature on the series, mentoring and supporting the acts.

    Everybody should watch this with their kids when it comes on as the dance troops on here were fab!! My daughter and I managed to get tickets to be in the audience and it was excellent, Alesha was brilliant too and came round interacting with the audience kids when they had little breaks…

    Watch out for “Wiked” a streetdance crew made up of kids from Kent & Essex – This show will inspire all young children who are interested in dance!

    I also got tickets to be in the audience and took my three children. Alesha constantly had to pull down her mini skirt/dress. Adults were chanting and screaming their favorite crews, drowning out the kids.

  4. Thanks for the link, guys! We also hear Flawless are to make an appearance in future episodes too, according to their management.
