Timetables and FAQs

FAQs

 
Q: What do I need to wear?
A: All dancers should have their hair tied back away from their face, and all jewellery removed. Once you join GSTARS for weekly sessions you will need dance clothes and shoes. Order forms can be found in our information pack.

Q: How do I get started?
A: You can contact us by phone, text, email, or even leave a post on our Facebook wall. These are all accessed through the Contact Us page. Please state your name, age, contact details and the classes you are interested in taking. GSTARS will get back to you within a day or two.

Q: What age can children start at GSTARS?
A: GSTARS takes children from as young as 2. Our Melody Movement Classes are especially designed for pre-school children, and are split between toddlers, and older pre-primary children.

Q:  Do you do classes for boys only?
A: Boys are welcome to join in with any of the GSTARS classes. We also have a boys only Street Dance group on a Saturday at 12.45pm-1.30pm and a more advanced class on a Friday at 5.30pm – 6.15pm.

Q: Can adults learn to dance at GSTARS?
A: GSTARS hold weekly Adult Ballet and Adult Tap classes. Private tuition is also available. 

Q: Should I drop my child off at GSTARS or are parents expected to stay?
A: You are welcome to leave while your child attends a GSTARS class. If you would like to stay, we have a waiting area.

Q: Can I watch my child dance?
A: Children are easily distracted so to help them concentrate we ask that parents wait outside the class. In the last week of each term parents are invited in to watch so you can see how your child is progressing.

Q: Are all the dance instructors DBS checked and First Aid Trained?
A: All the GSTARS teachers have valid DBS checks conducted before taking their position with GSTARS as well as First Aid Training and insurance.  

 


MISS GEORGINA IS HEADING TO SHANGHAI!

GSTARS' Principal, Miss Georgina, had some very exciting news to share recently. She has been asked to go to Shanghai for 6 weeks to put on a production of Sleeping Beauty at a top ballet school,  the CISCA (Conservatory for International Style and Cultural Arts).  This is an incredible opportunity and she is extremely honoured to have received this amazing invitation.  She is also excited to work alongside these exceptional professionals, learn huge amounts and bring her new-found knowledge home to share with the students of GSTARS.  Miss Georgina leaves the UK on 20th October and will return at the end of November 2017.  All at GSTARS wish her good luck as she embarks on this fantastic adventure!
