STA UPDATE

Due to the news of a third lockdown, STA is back online! We will be running our Zoom classes each Saturday, with ONLINE TASTERS available from the 30th January.

We at STA know that many students will be in online classes for a large part of their week at school now, and we therefore acknowledge that the idea of more might seem daunting. What we can promise however, is that our classes will have you moving about, working on performances from shows chosen by you, all whilst gaining a brilliant understanding of the necessary skills needed in singing, acting and dancing.

We look forward to welcoming our current students back on the 16th, and are very excited to see any new faces in our free tasters in the week’s following.

It was audition day for our student and all were fabulous. Starburst academy panto here we come .

After carefully considering the new guidance, we are pleased to announce that they do not affect our Saturday classes from running, and we will continue to operate as we have been since opening a few weeks ago! We’ve loved having the students back and are thrilled that we can continue to do so 🎉
.
Sadly, the same cannot be said for our ADULT classes for now, as the new guidance makes them rather difficult to run. They will therefore not be continuing until further notice.

Our 6th value here at STA is that of Resilience. We believe that in such a gruelling industry, our students should be taught that value of understanding that criticism does not define them as a person. Performers are all worthy, and any feedback given, is there to build them even stronger.

#Resilience #Values #STA #Dance #MusicalTheatre #Theatre

Today we have a think about the 5th of our key values - Honesty. We believe that honesty is key to success; performers should be open to honest feedback in order to progress.

We will keep you updated as to when both our Saturday school and weekday classes recommence, ways to register your interest with us for the upcoming year and hopefully bring you news of exciting developments over the next few months.
Our students (both kids and adults alike) have progressed phenomenally since September and we look forward to returning after our short break. In the meantime, if you wish to contact us you can still do so via this page or our website sta-uk.net

The fourth of our core values: Responsibility. Here at STA we believe for true success, one must be responsible for themselves and others around them. That's why we do a range of individual and group tasks with varying degrees of teacher input so students can develop a complete mix of skills.
