Star Academy: Reaching for the Stars

Star Academy has set a new precedent for Performing Arts Studios in Australia, from its contemporary décor to its modern facilities.

The Star Academy Grote street studio is a vibrant, colourful, urban venue consisting of 3 dance studios studios, 1 drama studio and a singing studio all equipped with sound systems, mirrors, ballet barres, microphones, high ceilings and wooden flooring. Ohh and don’t worry mums, there is also a lounge area with coffee and a 50inch plasma to prevent you from hysterically needing to rush past the drive through for a mediocre 1/4 strength coffee in-between kid pick ups. Sit back relax, read a magazine and sip away.

The performing arts Academy offers acting, singing, musical theatre and a variety of dance styles including Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Hip Hop, Contemporary/lyrical and Acrobatics. Priding itself on providing an atmosphere which instills confidence and develops self esteem, Star Academy aims to release the inner potential of students of all ages and capabilities.

Jenna Boffa the founder and Creative Director of Star Academy has over 20 years of performing arts education. Her passion has lead her to create an institute, which brings passion, friendships and talent together. The Academy caters for students who desire to pursue a career in entertainment or simply to have fun and get fit.

It can be a struggle to find the perfect match when it comes to finding an extra curricular activity for your child. You don’t want to be ‘that mum’ dragging a screaming 6 year old to classical piano lessons at the attempt of morphing them into the next Mozart, before they can even read. It can be difficult choosing the right activity where your child will feel comfortable doing something that’s at the right level for them. At Star Academy friendship is strongly encouraged throughout student, teacher and parent relationships. This has created a welcoming, supportive environment for the all members.

There is an apparent sense of community within the studio, Jenna Boffa Star Academy Creative Director says ‘Star Academy is proud of the family environment that has developed between staff, students and their families and we are so grateful for the amount of support we have received over the past 7 years. It is beautiful to watch friendships build in class, not only between students but also between students and teachers, and their families.’
