Funk Format

About Us

With over 14 years of dance expertise, Funk Format, founded by Sasha Biloshisky, provides an authentic street dance experience to people of all abilities, ages and backgrounds.

Classes, School Visits and Workshops

In our classes and workshops we are passionate to teach you more than just moves. Our Street Dance experts will teach you the origins of street dance styles and history of moves as well as giving you the opportunity to learn how to create a freestyle in your own way and how to express yourself through dance, rather than have you simply repeating routines.
We have taught in countless number of schools and clubs and are proud to have been featured on the BBC’s Blue Peter series as part of the Urban Playground Team. Even have the badge to prove it.

Choreography and Performances

We can provide you with choreography and performances.
Our choreography ranges from making your wedding extra special by choreographing your first dance, to big corporate events such as the opening of The Ideal Home Show at Earls Court.
Our Street Dance experts were recently involved in the new Boy George music video, where we choreographed and out sourced young dancers, three of which are our students. Looks awesome, see here: Videos

If you would like to book us for a performance we can provide you with shows done by our team of street dance experts and professional dancers, as well as small scale performances by our talented students.
Credits also include artists such as Beyonce, Alesha Dixon, Kylie Minogue, Boy George and Sean Paul.
