Starlight Youth Theatre

Classes for Dance, Drama and Singing

Our classes combine the performing arts of dance, drama and singing.


The style of dancing that is taught at Starlight is a cross between pop and jazz, it also depicts the style of musical that we choose to perform. Pupils take a dance class each week. However, pupils do not have to have had any dance training and this is not a dance school.

The ability of Starlight ranges from experienced dancers to pupils with two left feet, all we ask is that pupils TRY to do their best. All get a fair chance. We feel it is important for all abilities to be seen at the front – be they good, bad or indifferent.

For pupils who enjoy dancing then they can audition to be part of the A-Group dancers – a small group of very good dancers, who have much harder and extra dance routines in the musical shows.

Drama classes consist of drama games, situation drama, role play & script work. In our classes we try to teach and encourage the use of dialects.

Through our drama classes we try to build up confidence and to bring out the natural ability of each pupil. However, we never push a pupil to do something they do not feel confident or happy with. Sometimes it only needs a bit of gentle persuasion & support.

Drama Festivals

Each year a selection of our pupils are chosen to take part in the Leverhulme Drama Festival and we have a proud record of winners. Find out more here…

Drama classes


We hold singing classes in a variety of different styles, specialising in:

  • Technique lessons – Teaching scales, arpeggios and microphone control.
  • Choral lessons – Consisting of group singing to popular musical songs and learning harmonies.

We try to make our singing lessons as fun for pupils as possible and even get the karaoke out for the budding pop singers in the group.
