We're Anna & Hannah. We look quite alike, were born just a few months apart and have been friends since school. Together we run something we're incredibly proud of, Star Steppers. Each week we're fortunate enough to teach over 850 students about dance, drama and singing. This is our absolute passion and something we love doing.
Star Steppers Performing Arts has been running for over 10 years. Our classes have expanded since opening in Parochial Rooms in Cheam to now include Soper Hall in Caterham, Reigate Methodist Community Centre, Sacred Heart in Cobham & Horley Methodist Centre. We work with lots of local schools and communities all over Surrey, South London and Kent.
Anna Judge (nee Brunton) & Hannah Gunning (nee Everitt) and a team of amazing teachers plus a whole host of fantastic class assistants, most of which are much loved Star Steppers alumni and past-students. We must also mention the parents who help by, not just being part of Star Steppers, but also chaperones, giving up their time to ensure the shows are a huge success!
Anna & Hannah have trained and performed professionally at some of the UK's most respected institutions. Prior to setting up Star Steppers, Anna & Hannah taught at the likes of Stagecoach, Ballet Schools as well as Heading up Performing Arts at Danes Hill School, BTEC Dance courses in secondary schools and Dance Development for Tandridge Council.
Star Steppers classes run Monday through to Saturday in Cheam, Reigate, Caterham, Horley and Cobham, Surrey as well as in a host of schools. And we can often be found performing at local events or leading dance parties for kids at the weekends. Rest assured, Anna and Hannah manage to pack a lot of dancing into their weeks!
Our Step Into Education programme brings the creativity and excitement of performing arts to schools all over Surrey and South London. Whether you are looking for a weekly class or one off workshop we can provide what you are looking for. See which schools we have been working with on our Friends page.
Our Musical Theatre and Dance workshops are a creative, fun and energetic way to while away the holidays. We have workshops running in most half-terms and holidays and our Musical Theatre Summer School is usually three whole days of fun!! Keep an eye out for workshops led by external industry professionals and cast members of West End shows!
We can create dance parties for all ages. Whether you are looking for a children's birthday party, special event, celebration or a hen do we can tailor make a party especially for you. Learn dance routines to your favourite pop songs or show numbers.
Working in Partnership with Schools Throughout East Surrey
Through our work in schools, we were invited to be the organisers of the East Surrey Dance Festival. An event which was set up by the East Surrey School Sport Partnership, giving children from all over East Surrey the opportunity to represent their school and perform a dance routine on the professional stage at The Harlequin Theatre, Redhill. This event takes place in March each year and it is free for schools to enter. For more information please go to the East Surrey Steps Up Dance Festival page.
