Anna and I….

Posted by | Classes, News, Reigate | No Comments

Anna and I are both Surrey girls and we met at St Bede’s School in Redhill. We went our separate ways to train professionally at performing arts colleges – I went to Arts Educational Schools London and Anna went to Elmhurst Ballet School and Millennium Dance 2000.

In 2007 we met up again and a few years later Anna invited me to join her in setting up Star Steppers Performing Arts Ltd. Our joint aim has always been to pass on what we have learned over the years, from training and working professionally in the performing arts industry, and offer excellent dance and musical theatre training at an affordable price.

You see more and more pop music in the West End these days – ‘Viva Forever’ (Spice Girls Musical), ‘Never Forget’ (Take That Musical), ‘We Will Rock You’ (Queen), ‘Mamma Mia’ (Abba) ‘Our House’ (Madness), Jersey Boys (Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons) …. The list goes on and on! So we felt it was important to incorporate pop songs, street dance and current styles into our classes. Children love performing to the songs that they hear on the radio and on TV – it makes it so accessible to them and gets them all enthusiastic about joining in and having fun! As a result they approach the classes with less insecurities and in turn this boosts their confidence and helps them overcome any insecurities. We LOVE our jobs – it is SOOO busy and we work long hours but we are doing what we enjoy so we are very lucky indeed! Being only our third year of running Star Steppers as a limited company, we are still very hands on with every aspect of running Star Steppers – from building the website and designing artwork for flyers right through to our favourite job off all – bookkeeping!! Most of our weekends are spent celebrating children’s birthdays at our dance parties! And during the week we dance the days away passing on our enthusiasm of all things musical theatre on to the children we teach at our classes! We are living the dream and only hope that more and more people keep coming to Star Steppers and living it with us!

Banstead Community Junior School Christmas Concert

Posted by | Latest News, Schools | No Comments

In September, Hannah took over the hugely popular Breakfast dance Club at the Banstead Community Junior School. And this week the dancers put on their first public performance as part of the school’s Christmas Concert. The children were all absolutely fantastic and did themselves and their parents very proud indeed.

Hannah would like to thank all those at the school for their support and welcoming reception throughout her first term at the school. We are very much looking forward to next year’s projects – the Village May Fayre and the East Surrey Dance Festival are the next two performance dates for the diary – so watch this space!!

A HUGE thank you to all those involved with pyjama-rama-week!

Between 24th-30th November Star Steppers members put on their pyjamas and raised £246.00 for the charity DEBRA, who offer support to those effected by the genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) The money received by DEBRA goes towards caring for those with EB and also supports research programmes, in developing effective treatments.

All the members of Star Steppers classes in Caterham, Reigate, Cheam, Stoneleigh and Oxshott came to class in their pyjamas and generously donated money to the charity. Hannah Everitt, one of the directors of Star Steppers, said “It was a lot of fun! There was wide array of wonderful nightwear – from bunny-suits to Spiderman pyjamas – it was great to do something a bit different to make a difference!”
