Parent testimonial

When Ruby asked me at the age of 3 if she could go to ballet, I enrolled her at Shooting Stars with Sam. Since then she has loved every minute from the teachers, to the shows and still loves her ballet at the age of 12. She is now training for Pointe and can’t wait to get her shoes. Thanks to Becky and the team for nurturing her throughout the years.

Becky and the shooting stars team have been fantastic! My daughter started dancing aged 4 with Becky and has progressed to be in the pre elite group now aged 8. She absolutely loves it and her confidence and ability has just grown and grown. Now she is competing in competitions and loves doing the regular shooting stars shows. I couldn’t recommend shooting stars enough.

Isla has been with Becky since she was two and a half for over eight years now! She loves her dance lessons and taking part in annual shows and competitions. Becky and her team of teachers always have a smile on their faces for the children and it's clear to see they love what they do.

Parent testimonial

Over the past 3 years both of my daughters have danced ballet, tap and street dance with SSDA. They love it and really enjoy themselves whilst learning great dance skills. The classes are fun, exciting and great exercise, with teachers who are skilled, very encouraging, and friendly building confidence and self esteem. SSDA shows are amazing and the girls love being a part of them. As parents we are very proud. I would highly recommend SSDA to any parent looking for dance classes for their children.

Parent testimonial

Matthew joined Shooting Stars September 2012 age 6, joining the Woolston group. Such a friendly & enjoyable place to go and great classes as the groups are split in age groups so the little ones are not trying to keep up with the older ones. He loves every bit of it and loves learning new moves & showing them off. He enjoys the performances that are put on to the public throughout the year and the annual summer & Christmas shows.
