Kookies n Kream reached the pinnacle of street dance after successfully reaching the Grand finals of Seven Network’s Australia’s Got Talent. And after wining national and international titles, they are proud to open the doors to their very own dance school. Fresh from their global tours with Justin Bieber, Ciara, Ryan Leslie, Jay Sean, Dami Im, Timomatic and Justice Crew, their dream of bringing love and passion for dance to Western Sydney is here.
“To all the other crews in this country, that is how you put on a performance.”
Jethro Valencia aka Jet, is the lead choreographer and director of Kookies N Kream. Learning as a freestyle dancer in the mean streets of Sydney, made Jet’s transition to choreography authentic and unique. Over the course of 8 years, national and international titles were synonymous to his name.
"I have been dreaming about Kookies n Kream dance school since Australia's Got Talent. I'm so happy to say it's now a reality. And now it begins… let's get our dancing shoes on and have a boogie with the Kookie".

Her portfolio of clients include, Apl de Ap from Balck Eyed Peas, Far East Movement, Jennifer Lopez with her most recent collaboration include X Factor alumni, Nathaniel and The Voice winner, Anja.
