Starbrite's Performing Arts Outreach Programme
"Perform - Inspire - Educate"

Do the students in your school have a passion for performance? Would you like to provide your students with specialist high-quality performing arts provision which fulfils National Curriculum criteria?

Starbrite can provide all of this to fit in with your school's busy day.

We are passionate about making the performing arts available to everyone, not only those who attend our studios. We have been working with local schools for several years now, and have in the past offered the services listed below.

As a performing arts school, we can plan and deliver dance, drama, and singing lessons and workshops in schools, but we can also offer acro/gymnastics and dance circus activities too. We are a member of the International Dance Teachers'’ Association (IDTA) and are accredited Acrobatic Arts and Dance Cirque providers.

At Starbrite Studios, we take care of the administrative aspects of our programmes, including enrollment, registers, and payments.


All of our programmes aim to:

  • Improve health and well-being
  • Develop literacy, numeracy and ICT skills
  • Boost confidence
  • Help children make friends
  • Encourage resilience
  • Build social skills
  • Increase knowledge and understanding of cultural difference, learning and physical disability across the social spectrum
  • Counter gender stereotypes
  • Build teamwork skills through group-led choreography
  • Encourage healthy lifestyles

We work with each school to deliver themes which enrich school learning and the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1, 2 and 3. Our action-packed classes are full of energy, fun and flair for all and encourage creativity and imagination through the performing arts.
