My daughters have both attended STARS sessions and absolutely love them. Mini Ballet is a delightfully endearing class as Jess is so engaging, patient and caring towards the children, adding a sprinkling of banter to keep the parents amused! Our little ballerinas have all grasped the movements Jess has been teaching them and they all receive her undivided attention. She does an amazing job of keeping them focussed whilst still making time for their little chit chat - not an easy task, but Jess nails it!

​"Words cannot describe the emotion I felt today watching my girls perform in the Stars Performing Arts Summer concert!
It was amazing, fun, exciting, amusing, vibrant and full of positive energy. I was glued to the performance beginning to end and my body wouldn't stop moving I couldn't help but join in  😝🤗
I had a real proud mummy moment watching my girls take part working hard and reaping the rewards of their pure dedication and perseverance week on week. Today I saw my girls in a different light I saw a side I'd been hoping for for a long time and that was CONFIDENCE And sheer JOY  😊
The only person I can thank for all of the above is our beloved teacher Jessica Edgar! Without your continued effort to drive these kids we would not have seen this amazing show today...So for that I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart."
