About

Starcast Performing Arts Schools provide exceptional part time theatre training for 4 – 18 year olds in singing, dancing and acting, in Salisbury, Amesbury, Fordingbridge  and Romsey.

Starcast was founded in 2009 in Salisbury by professional and international performer and dancer, Samantha Holloway who wanted to develop and encourage local children’s love for the Performing Arts in a school where no one is judged and everyone feels valued. The Schools grew from one session a week to 6 busy schools in Salisbury, Amesbury, Fordingbridge  and Romsey with nearly 300 students attending weekly classes.

Starcast is a friendly, welcoming Performing Arts School which is suitable for all levels from beginners to advanced. Through our classes, teaching techniques and performance opportunities our students learn to be confident, articulate and expressive – skills for life.

We pride ourselves in offering inspirational, creative, fun classes in a professional, disciplined environment.

In our sessions we cover many aspects of the three main Theatre Arts disciplines from West End musical theatre through to street dance, commercial dance, hip hop, chart songs and acting for camera.

Students gain valuable insights into the industry with regular special guest workshops led by experienced professionals from stage and screen.

There is a strong focus on performance opportunities this helps students develop their confidence and potential, to give every student the chance to shine on stage.

Many students have also gained professional work such as parts in the West End of tour of “Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang” and “Evita” and TV adverts, thanks to our partnership with an established talent agency.

We also offer guidance and support for students who wish to apply for professional vocational college and university auditions.

Our school is constantly evolving but our principles stay the same…. respect, discipline, diligence, fun and friendships are key to a wonderful training and happy, confident children.

Testimonials

  • Harriet who has been obsessed with musicals and watching talented acting from a young age absolutely loves coming to Starcast . You are all so loving and kind and Harriet is so lucky to have this on her doorstep. As a parent it's lovely for your child to belong to something and keep them on the straight and narrow. Harriet was quite anxious up to the age of three, seeing her perform on Saturday made me burst with pride in her confidence.
