At The Star Project we offer a high standard of professional training for children in the arts. We feel it’s important to communicate this to parents and children from the outset so that you can consider whether The Star Project is the right place for your child. Please read this carefully with your child before enrolling.
The Star Project is not a “kids club” and whilst we keep fun at the heart of our sessions we are here to deliver the correct training and appreciation of discipline required by any successful artist.
Many of our students go on to audition and work professionally for casting agencies and TV and film companies. Representing The Star Project and themselves at all times, we aim to build this understanding in them from a young age, so that they can be the very best versions of themselves and a wonderful example to others.
Our Team and Teaching Style
Our team are highly-skilled professionals who work at a high level with our students. There are certain things that we expect as standard and we encourage good discipline.
At The Star Project our team often use loud voices, high energy and a direct approach and when working musically with loud tracks and a large group of children this is necessary.
This does not mean your child is being shouted at. We never shout at children, however it’s important that they are aware and prepared especially in the older age groups for this style and approach as often it can be mistaken for the above.
Your children will learn skills at SP which they can take forward into all aspects of their lives so that they become outstanding young people who are great team players and assets to the other groups they become part of.
Preparing for Class
We expect the following:
- Always show up in the correct uniform
- Hair tied neatly back off face
- To have their script with them at all rehearsals with a pencil and a folder
- To show good focus and listening
- To have caught up on anything missed before the session by communicating with other students
- Not to talk when the Director or Choreographer is talking
- To behave in a professional manner
- To show respect to each other and their teachers
- To dedicate time at home to learning lines and practicing dances and songs
- To understand that learning the material for a show is their responsibility.
