About Us

Streetfunk is a multi-award-winning street dance school providing dance classes to everyone ranging from 4 yrs to 18yrs across Sussex.

Although Hip Hop dance is at the forefront of Streetfunk’s activities, what is most important to JP Omari, our founder, are the qualities that make someone not only a good dancer but also a decent, respectable and confident person which are: HARD WORK, DISCIPLINE and RESPECT.

In our classes, children learn the importance of these qualities alongside the ability to EXPRESS THEMSELVES FREELY and HAVE FUN through dance.

Streetfunk founder JP Omari is a multi-award winning Hip Hop dancer, teacher, coach and choreographer who has worked hard and extensively to become THE leading Hip Hop dance figure in Brighton & Hove. He has performed, taught and judged competitions around the world and is widely respected in the UK dance scene.

JP became the UK’s first bboy (breakdancer) to take part in a reality TV dance show when he took part in the BBC’s Strictly Dance Fever in 2006 reaching the semi-finals with his dance partner, Stacey Gaunt. Since then, he has worked with chart topping artists such as Dizzee Rascal, Sean Paul and Orbital.

He is the founder of Streetfunk - the South Coast’s biggest and most successful Hip Hop dance school based in Brighton. Established in 2006, the core values of hard work, discipline, respect and having fun lie at the heart of Streetfunk where hundreds of kids and adults of all ages are taught to street dance.

JP has also created a fitness brand called FunkFit. FunkFit is a dance fitness class to funk, soul, Motown, groove and disco classics. The emphasis is on dancing (no choreography) and having fun where you will naturally get fit, sweat and work out. JP aims on making FunkFit the new global dance fitness phenomenon with classes happening all over the UK already!

JP knows no boundary and is intent on spreading his love and passion to dance and music worldwide.
