Is your child a star of the future? At New Stars, all children shine.

At the New Stars Arts Academy we believe that every child should have access to a high quality arts education. From commercial, lyrical, Irish and rhythmic dance, through drama, vocals and musical theatre to fitness and yoga we run a whole variety of sessions in schools and as extra-curricular activities. We also offer Open Academies out of school hours to encourage young people of all ages to experience the arts in their spare time.  Priding ourselves in being inclusive and accessible, New Stars offer classes with PAYG or termly payment options and welcome students of all ages and abilities.


 A unique approach, a warm, welcoming and encouraging environment, and a real passion for the work we do makes New Stars stand out.


Our aim is to inspire and engage children, teaching them new skills,  helping their social development and building confidence and self esteem.   Learning within the arts enhances communication and interpersonal skills; giving children the opportunity to solve problems, use their imagination and develop creativity.  New Stars aim is to aid and support progress throughout childhood by offering an arts experience which will have a positive impact on the rest of their lives – and their curriculum at school to help make learning both enjoyable and relevant.


Professional tutors, who both teach and work in the industry, help your child to come alive and shine like the star they are. Academies start at 18 months and run right through to adult fitness and yoga sessions. There’s something for the whole family.


So whatever your performing arts needs are, New Stars are here to help!  Take a look at what we offer and get in touch.  Why not come along and open the door to a world of performing arts; a world we firmly believe can change lives and create bright futures. There’s room for everyone to sparkle!

Welcome to the family!

  • “New Stars Arts Academy is a fantastic club and has been a fixture in our extra curricular timetable for a number of years. The club tutors are incredibly professional, highly skilled and engage all learners from complete beginners to experienced performers. The end of unit performances are stunning and always leave the children buzzing for more. A brilliant, high quality organisation.”

  • “My 6 year old son has been attending New Stars for the past 6 months. He really enjoys the classes and has found a new love for music and dance.  I have enjoyed watching his concentration and enthusiasm when learning the dance routines and he loves performing the end of term show. It's great to see his confidence growing each time he performs, makes me very proud!  Kelly is an excellent teacher, she is very patient and has a warm and friendly manner with the children.”

  • “I LOVE IT!!!”

  • “The classes are really fun and I recommend them to everybody!!!”

    Heather aged 12
  • “I originally enrolled my daughter Emily to New Stars without her knowing, as she is very shy and withdrawn and would never have agreed to go, but she loves to sing and dance when she thinks that no one is watching.  Emily has been attending for two terms now and she literally counts down the days every week until it’s ‘dance time!’  Her confidence has grown and my husband and I have noticed such a difference in her!  After every class she gets home and shows us what she has learnt, and she is now forever singing and dancing around the house.  New Stars has made a world of difference to Emily, we couldn't ask for anything more.”

  • “I love Tuesday’s, I know that Kelly’s coming and I get to DANCE!”

    Amy aged 7
  • “I like New Stars because I get to sing, dance and play with the circus stuff, it’s so much fun and I make lots of friends!”

    Joe aged 5
  • “I first met Kelly when she began teaching my daughter Jess at Little Houghton Primary. I personally find Kelly enchanting to watch when she is teaching my daughter. There is always a sense of fun and freedom. This combined with her talent to engage with the children encourages them to focus and there is always a great outcome at the end of term performance. Jess loves the classes and the shows. She has become more confident and there isn't a day that goes by that she isn't singing the latest Kelly number! I believe Kelly is fast achieving her goal to become a renowned Performing Arts teacher in Northampton. Her approach is unique and when you meet Kelly you soon realise she genuinely loves kids and wants them to shine for who they are!”

  • “Best day ever, I never want it to end!”
