What do parents say about us?
Parent of child aged 5
"Our daughter joined Shining Stars just after her 2nd birthday. Having danced myself for many years as a child, I loved the fact she wanted to go. For nearly 2 years I danced with her, joining in every class. Miss Claire welcomed us both with open arms and she thoroughly enjoyed it. The Preschool class was brilliant and really helped her confidence because the final term she danced without me while I sat where most parents did. Shining Stars really helped her come out of her shell and now she's begun her first real classes in Reception and she loves it. Being a part of the big girls has changed her and she loves her new blue uniform. Thank you to everyone at Shining Stars with their patience and commitment and who has helped her on her way to where she is now. A brilliant dance academy that I would recommend all day long."
Parent of child aged 4
"My little one has been coming to Shining Stars since she was 18 months. She is now 4 and loving coming to her weekly dance lesson. The teachers have such a lovely way with the students and my daughter has gained so much confidence as well as dance skills. We would highly recommend the dance school."
Parent of child aged 7
"My daughter started at Shining Stars at 15 months in preschool dancing even though we don’t live in Eastbourne as there were not many dance schools which take them so young. We loved the dance school so much instead of putting her into a nearer dance school we stayed at Shining Stars. She is now 7 and her confidence has grown so much. She has been given the opportunity to dance in festivals and dances at Disneyland Paris. She has made some lovely dance friends and is always excited to go to class and rehearsals. Teachers are wonderful, very supportive and friendly."
Parent of child aged 13
"My daughter is 13 and has been at Shining Stars since she was 5. After trying a couple of other dance schools since she was 3 this was a perfect fit for her. She started with ballet on a Saturday morning and now attends 7 different classes and has been in shows and taken part in festivals. It has been brilliant for her confidence and fitness. Now over 8 years later she still loves dance, has made amazing friends and so have I. I cannot recommend this dance school highly enough."
