Our Teachers


  • Starcast has been my home away from home since 2018 and there is nothing that brings me the same joy as performing on stage in these incredible performance opportunities with some of my closest friends who I have met through Starcast.

    -Rosie - Starcast Student
  • All three of my children have attended Starcast over the last 6 or so years. They are all very different with different strengths and passions and there has been a fit for all three. I now have just one left and she is loving being a part of it and given so many fabulous opportunities.

    -Charmain - Starcast parent
  • My daughter joined Starcast at the age of 4, almost 8 years later she is still here and made many friends along the way. Starcast is a fantastic mix of professionalism, fun and self development.
