Open Day


Stars Academy opened its doors originally in 2005,  in September 2019  we moved to our brand new studios in Shiremoor. To celebrate we held a special Open Day for all new and returning students.

Summer School


This year's Summer School was all things Disney. The students who attended worked with Teacher Vicky on two different medley routines. These routines were videoed and submitted to Disney Land Paris and the children were successful and will perform at Disney Land Paris in 2021.
