Alesha Anjanete Dixon was born on October 7, 1978 in Welwyn, Garden City, United Kingdom. Dixon attended Monks Walk School and originally planned to train to become a teacher of physical education. She earned admittance to Loughborough University. However she was approached by a record producer while riding the train one day. The producer asked whether or not she could sing. Dixon decided to place her original dream on hold to pursue a career in the music industry.
In 1999 Alesha Dixon enrolled into Dance Attic, a West London dance academy. While at the dance academy she met Sabrina Washington. Washington and Dixon met Zena McNally and Su-Elise Nash at auditions and formed Mis-Teeq. The quartet signed to Telstar Records.
