This is a fundamental tool which allows acting to flow from a pure place. This is where confidence meets humility. Its where we really get real in the art of storytelling. Our qualified industry professionals teach classes in television, radio, theatre, writing, reading, and acting in a fun safe and inclusive environment. We are delighted to teach the young actors of All Starz our unique Kids Act Up classes!

“Acting is a craft and to perfect any craft it takes motivation, bravery and the willingness to live on the line of truth. I love inspiring young actors to act wholeheartedly in class and in their lives. There’s no difference between living on stage and living in the world and when the actor understands this the magic is revealed and the work starts to flow.”

Team members learn a selection of well-choreographed competitive dances, perform in different styles and are exposed to other performers at competitions on both regional and national levels. These students are also exposed to many different choreographers and industry specialists helping them prepare for auditions and the real world of dance. There are expectations and requirements that troupe students must meet in order to fulfil and maintain their position in the team.
