Shining Bright Like a Star are really professional, yet great fun for the children. They do lots of events which are brilliant for confidence building. My daughter does singing classes. She didn't think she could sing, but she can and very well! There is a lovely crowd of children at Shining Bright Like a Star and my daughter gets on very well with the teachers too. Maria has put her heart and soul into Shining Bright Like a Star, I really can't fault it!
My daughter wasn't really very confident and I thought Shining Bright Like a Star might help her. Everyone there is so friendly, very helpful and made us feel very comfortable. Stacey now does ballet, dance, singing and acting classes, she goes to Shining Bright Like a Star twice a week. Miss Marie the singing teacher is really bubbly, makes everything fun and includes everybody. Stacey loves everything at Shining Bright Like a Star and especially likes her dance classes.
Shining Bright Like a Star is a very friendly, relaxed group where everybody is made to feel very welcome. Maria, who runs it, is lovely and very much for the kids. Everybody is included. My daughter, Amy has been going to Shining Bright Like a Star since last September. She goes three times a week to do tap, ballet, jazz, theatre performance, singing and acting. Amy loves Maria, all the teachers and has made loads of friends. She has really come out of her shell since joining and her confidence has gone through the roof.
My daughter has only been with sblas for a short time, but she has become confident and I put that down to the dance teachers. I find them welcoming and very friendly. I would recommend them to anybody.
My daughter Gemma has been attending singing and drama classes for over a year with SBLAS. She has grown very confident in her performances over this time period and has been guided very well by her two teachers. She got a Distinction in her first ever drama exam and this is a testament to the dedication of the staff. Gemma is very happy in this friendly, family orientated school.
