'I've recently arrived back from a youth exchange in Latvia on behalf of 4FS. I can't thank Alice enough for this wonderful and challenging experience. Getting together with different cultures and living a different lifestyle for 9 days was incredible. I wouldn't have thought of going on a youth exchange ever so without 4FS amazing opportunities I wouldn't have done it. I have so much respect for Alice and would do anything for her. Working with the group these past few months has been fab and can't wait to work with them again soon. To see young children and teenagers have so much fun and to have so much passion in the work they do with Alice is so nice to watch knowing that they are like this because of Alice's hard work and determination. I can't express enough how privileged I am to work with 4FS. So Thank you!'

'We have been using Alice and her dance company throughout the current school year and her knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm has been infectious. After starting with our junior pupils she has expanded her club to cover the whole school and numbers have shot up. Children talk about how much fun street dance is and enjoy seeing themselves progress under Alice's teaching. Our dancers have performed routines for parents at open days and will continue to increase their profile.
In addition to working with children Alice has also been delivering continuing professional development training for our teaching staff. She delivered a very successful training event to show teachers from nursery to year 6 how they might use the principles of street dance to contribute to the dance aspects of the PE curriculum. I would recommend her to any other schools.'

If you are looking for a dance organisation that is more than just a dance school then I would suggest that you give 4FS and the Walker Combo that is Alice & Jack the opportunity to enthuse and enthral your son or daughter.
My daughter started dancing with another teacher and that was great at first. Three to four months in, the feeling was that the dancing was OK but our daughter was a little bored and uninspired.
Fortunately Alice came on the scene at the dance school and our daughter has gone from strength to strength. Our daughter has self motivation but she absorbs the passion that Alice brings to the classes and the desire to be the best she can. We recently moved to 4FS purely because our daughter wanted to continue with Alice.
Jack lives and breathes dance – he is committed, passionate and gifted. He leads from the front and never asks his dancers to do anything that he would not do himself. Mature beyond his years he has a fantastic rapport and demeanour that gets the best from his dancers.
The environment is high tempo yet teamwork has a capital T. The kids are encouraged to work with and for each other.
My recommendation is that you give these guys the opportunity to show you what they can do and bring out the best in your child. I know it has in mine.
3 Villages Youth Project has collaborated with 4FS many times over the past few years. It is always a pleasure working with Alice and Jack! They are very talented, creative and passionate dancers who run a very professional and successful community dance project. The young people we take to dance days and dance workshops always leave feeling inspired by what they have learnt. Alice and Jack have always impressed me with their ability to ensure everyone learns something at their dance workshops; they work with any young people regardless of their age or ability and welcome everyone with open arms.
I love the philosophy of 4FS and always feel privileged to work with them. 3VYP looks forward to working with 4FS again in the future.
For the past 4 years my daughter has been dancing with 4FS, initially with dance days and workshops, which has now grown into being a member of team and company (competitions and performance based).
We have watched her grow from a shy child into a confident, happy teenager. Alice and Jack provide something very special, their energy and passion for dance and the dedication and support for each and every child/teenager that dances with them, shines through.
I can't recommend 4FS highly enough, my daughter would spend every day dancing with them if she could!!
As a dedicated 'Dance Mum' of a child attending 4FS since the early days of weekly youth club dance sessions, it has been amazing to see my daughter grow in confidence and ability, inspiring her to go on to study dance at college. 4FS has offered her so many exciting opportunities from dance days and workshops to becoming a company member, with trips to Austria and the UDance platform....and there's more to come! Thank you Alice & Jack!
4FS are more than a dance company, they are a family. Offering high quality dance classes and opportunities for all the community in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
The thing that I like about 4FS is that we always have guest teachers from London. I also like it when we perform, I enjoyed our recent performance in Truro. I like the friendly people and the dances that we learn. I like how Alice and Jack push us and sometime I don't get it, so have to practice.

I really enjoy social classes at 4FS because its a very relaxed social environment and I have made really good friends of all ages. We learn different dances every week which are always great fun and to current music. Alice and Jack are always fun to be taught by and always make me and my friends feel welcome. Saturdays are my favorite day of the week.

I love working and performing with 4FS because the company have become really good friends, we can laugh, enjoy and perform together.
I love Hip Hop and getting to learn the different styles. Performing flashmobs at events and entering competitions is such a great experience and loads of fun.
My best experience with 4FS was performing at U Dance, only one of two groups representing the South West for Youth Dance England.
Bethanie Frigot, Age 19
I come to 4FS because I love to dance and spend time with my friends. There are loads of new opportunities and I learn new things every time. I have made lots of new friends and I am much better dancer than when I first started.
(I love 4FS)
