Looking to join Starz Drama School classes but not sure which one to pick for your child? No problem! Our handy guide below is designed to help you do just that!
What classes do we offer?
Here at Starz Drama School, we offer a range of performing arts classes designed to help your child build their confidence, resilience and imagination. All of our classes are fun, affordable and offer a nurturing environment to children of all ages.
The classes that we offer fall under four broad categories: drama, dancing, singing and gymnastics. They include:
- Drama Starz
- Contemporary dance
- Commercial dance
- Boys only commercial dance
We often get asked: “which one is best for my child?”. The answer, of course, depends on the child!
Below you will find a brief description of each of our classes, which should help you to select the perfect sessions for your Starz.
Drama is our passion, and our performing arts school has long been famed for its award-winning drama classes.
These classes are perfectly designed and delivered to help boost a child’s confidence and imagination. Our nurturing, weekly classes feature a range of different activities, and are delivered as small group sessions.
While some children who attend our drama classes have their heart set on appearing on the big stage (and this is a dream that we help them to work towards), our sessions are suitable for any and every child looking to develop new friendships, social skills, and more.
Our Drama Starz also get the opportunity to star in our annual musical and pantomime performances – hugely popular events for everyone involved!
These classes, as the name suggests, provide a stronger focus on the acting element of performing arts.
Children learn skills to help with their confidence and creativity, and we teach them about various acting skills which will help them both on the stage and also in other walks of life.
For children who love to belt out hits, our singing classes are super-popular! We teach them how to sign with passion, confidence and skill.
Ever watched a music video and seen the way that they dance? Well, that’s commercial dance! It takes from many different dance styles – hip hop, street, jazz and modern – and is all about self-expression, energy and performance.
These high-impact classes are a firm fave among our Dance Starz, and it’s not hard to see why!
Boys only commercial dance
As above, but specifically designed for boys.
Featuring lots of fluid movements, contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that fuses elements of several genres, including ballet, modern and jazz. As with commercial dance, it’s all about expression, and these classes help children to tell stories and feel their emotions through the power of dance.
A newer addition to our timetable are our ballet classes. While some of our other dance classes feature elements of ballet, these classes focus on it exclusively and are proving highly popular with our dance Starz.
You’ll find options for children aged 4 all the way up to 18 years.
Learning techniques such as flips, splits, butterfly kicks, handstands, and cartwheels, Starz gymnastic classes are delivered by experienced gymnastics coaches, and tailored to suit children of all ages and abilities.
Acrobatic gymnastics – or acro, for short – focuses on using strength and flexibility to perform gymnastics-based tricks. These classes combine traditional dance techniques with acrobatic skills and flair.
