LOCAL girl Alexis Walker has started her own street-dancing classes.

The Monkspath performer recently started teaching adults and the lessons have proven so popular, she’s opened the door to youngsters.

Alexis said she has been amazed by the number of people who have signed up since the classes began in December.

In particular there have been hundreds of Michael Jackson fans who are keen to learn some of the King of Pop’s signature moves.

“Street dancing is really popular at the moment,” explained Alexis.

“It started in America and I suppose the one person who really made it popular would be Michael Jackson. It’s gone from there and evolved with artists like Justin Timberlake and Beyonce.

“Most recently, Diversity, who won Britain’s Got Talent, have generated a lot of interest. At the moment I’ve got a waiting list for people who want to join the adult classes.”

Dance Street classes are held at Solihull College. To find out more call Alexis on 0790 99 66 303 or email alexis@dancestreet.co.uk.
