Our Teachers


  • Starcast has a very special place in my heart. My six year old has been attending for almost two years now and he absolutely LOVES coming to class each week! He has built up his confidence, not just as a performer but in general too

    -Lizzi, Starcast Parent
  • It’s not just the dancing, the steps or the notes that make the classes at Starcast priceless, it’s the energy the teachers put in, the life lessons it teaches and confidence it gives everyone to succeed.

    -Emma, Age 19 - Starcast Graduate
  • Not only do I feel as though I’ve learned so many skills and techniques that I use in my practices today at university but I also feel as though Starcast has helped me to become a better person.
