ACTRESS and choreographer Suzie Lowe is stepping out in a new direction - and opening her own street dance school.

The enterprising 24-year-old wants to help youngsters and adults realise their dancing dreams, encouraging them to take up dancing simply for the sheer pleasure of it or to keep fit, or to prepare for the amateur or professional stage.

“It's a little bit scary - I keep wondering whether I am too young to start my own business, but if I don't do it now I may never have that urge and drive again,” said Miss Lowe, of Valley Walk, Felixstowe.

“My plan is to start with schools in Felixstowe and Ipswich, but I hope if it is successful I will be able to expand further afield, perhaps setting up a franchise with schools all over the country.”

The Streetwise Inc Dance Studio will focus on street dance - such as that in Fame and High School Musical, hip-hop and music video style dancing.

She is staging free workshops at the Spa Pavilion on Sunday and people who would like to go along and try the dancing and find out more about the school should contact her on 07877 010 613, or turn up on the day.
