Dance and Fitness
Join us to have fun, fitness and
much much more
We are a dance school in Culcheth, Warrington. Northern Starr Dance and Fitness has been established for over 30 years, teaching currently over 200 pupils. We believe every child has the ability to realise their potential, by providing a fun and relaxed atmosphere in which children can grow in both confidence and technique. Our freestyle dance classes include a variety of styles, primarily modern, disco, lyrical and street/commercial. Combining a mixture of modern dance and music, with old style musical theatre, our emphasis always remains on enjoyment and fun. Classes are mainly held at our purpose built dance studio in Culcheth, with some classes at Ascend studio in Leigh.
Our dance classes in Culcheth cover a range of styles and disciplines including lyrical, Jazz, Modern, Commercial and Freestyle. Due to current restrictions all styles are taught in each class allowing you to try various styles whilst gaining confidence and keeping fit.
Ballet and Contemporary
Our ballet classes are designed to ensure that every dancer has the technique they need to be the best dancer they can be. We also have contemporary classes aimed at our older students who wish to combine elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet.
The Yoga Trapeze in Culcheth is a suspension yoga system great for back pain, core strength, functional upper body strength, flexibility and balance. Most of our clients are looking to relieve back pain, relieve stress, improve their grip and core strength. If that sounds like you, email me and let’s schedule your 1-1 session, classes are also available in small groups.
Fitness and Power Yoga
Freestyle fitness yoga is designed for all levels of fitness including beginners. Our Power Yoga is aimed at those who would like a more strenuous experience. Both classes concentrate more of the physical aspects but with an introduction to the spiritual. We use yoga postures, stretches and balances and combine them with the fitness principles for strength, stability and increased flexibility.
Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. Zumba routines incorporate interval training by alternating fast and slow rhythms to help improve cardiovascular fitness. The secret is that you are so busy having fun you barely even realise you’re exercising!
We have many more fitness classes still to come including our very own West End Wiggles which is a dance-based exercise class designed around our favourite West End musicals. We also have our specialised Full Body workout which targets each part of the body through cardio, strength and flexibility.
Come and celebrate your child’s birthday party in style!
Our beautiful studios are the perfect place for your child to become a Pop Star or TikTok idol for the day. Please contact us with your party needs and we will accomodate them at the hottest venue in Culcheth!
We will be running 1-1 sessions for anyone looking to audition for any performing arts institutions. From in-depth advice on a monologue, to how to be yourself in an audition room, these sessions can be suited to individuals’ needs. And are a fantastic way to get some useful advice from someone with industry experience before your next big audition.
Coming soon to Northern Starr is our own music studio based in Culcheth. Our plan is to use the studio as a base to compose and mix music. We will also offer specific parties and experiences for young musical minds.
Not only this, but we also hope to host number of private lessons from instruments to vocals.
Dance Classes are in Culcheth and Leigh and are run through the I.D.T.A, with all members of staff being highly qualified and experienced; all teachers are fully DBS checked and insured. We hold dance examinations throughout the year, and currently maintain a 100% pass rate. Each year we put on a showcase at the Parr Hall in Warrington, where professionalism is paramount and our pupils get performance experience. Stage schools are offered during most school holidays, in which we blend dance and other theatre skills. Pupils get the chance to put on a show, developing confidence and broadening their abilities.
We have a competition squad made up of those members who want to take their training to the next level, taking extra classes with more of an emphasis on technique. Partaking in regular competitions nationwide with the opportunity to do solos, duets, trios and troupes.
We also teach adult fitness classes, with many dance based programmes such as Zumba, West End Wiggles and Tap which cater for all ages ranging from 15 to 90! We also provide full body workout sessions and Fitness Yoga and are really excited to offer one to one classes in Trapeze Fitness.
