Alesha Dixon begins the search to find Britain's best young street dance crew

Alesha Dixon hosts Alesha's Street Dance Stars, a talent search to find Britain's best young street dance crew.

From the hundreds of crews – all aged between 10 and 16 years old – that auditioned across the UK, 24 have been selected to perform in the first round of qualifiers.

On Monday, the first eight battle it out for a place in the next stage of the competition – only five will make it through. On Tuesday, another eight crews compete for one of the places in the final 15. A further eight crews battle it out in the last round of the qualifiers on Wednesday.

From Thursday the final 15 competitors take part in one of three heats for a coveted place in the semi-final. To get through they'll need to gain top marks for choreography, showmanship and technique; only three will make it this time.

At the end of the show each of the successful dance crews will find out they have a brand new challenge for the semi-finals. They must adopt a new dance style, but which one – rock 'n' roll, ballet or Bhangra?

Presented by Alesha Dixon, her team of judges are Laurence Olivier Award-winner Kenrick "H20" Sandy, So You Think You Can Dance finalist Lizzie Gough and Isaac "Turbo" Baptiste – one of the UK's most versatile street dancers. The series puts the crews through their paces to find out which group has what it takes to be crowned Alesha's Street Dance Stars 2011.
