, Shining Stars age 9-13

Shining Stars is a programme designed for children aged 9 to 12, bridging the gap between Primary and Secondary school. During this stage, we focus on audience engagement, supporting our students to develop their physical expression through the three key disciplines to deliver more believable performances.

The session will start with 30 minutes of preperation exercises in which Bright Stars, Shining stars and Performing Stars will work together. This will be followed by three micro sessions lasting 45 minutes each.

Dance classes at this stage are designed to improve coordination and technique. Students have the chance to perform solos as well as ensemble routines, covering a range of styles including Street, Modern, Jazz, Indian, Urban, Contemporary and Ballet. At this stage students will also have the opportunity to devise and perform their own routines.
