What do the children do in Star Turns (age 5-6) ?

Children in these classes learn all about creativity, using their imagination and build on their improvisation skills.  They are taught about spatial awareness, rhythm, movement, performance and expression.  Their teacher, Janey,  brings in props every week and ends the class with a bubble machine which the kids love.  Their confidence soars as they are free to be themselves. The classes are aimed to help the children progress into Star Turns.

Are parents allowed into class with the under 7’s?

We ask that parents stay in the class with the children until the children feel confident enough to take part in the class independently.  This allows them to be free to express themselves without looking for parental approval. This is when you see them really being creative and imaginative. The classes are aimed to prepare the children to move into the Performing Arts School where they will do an hour of each discipline.

How long are the classes?

Star Turns is for 1 hour and 15 minutes

Children in the performing arts school do one hour of street dance, one hour of singing and one hour of acting.

How Often do you hold your classes?

Classes are on a Saturday morning and afternoon, also on Sunday mornings, term time only you can view the term dates by looking under the “Classes” tab on the home page.

What time do the classes start and finish?

Classes begin at 10am for  the morning sessions at Dollis Hill & Hendon and finish at 1pm unless part of a group, (by audition only) or for rehearsals where the children finish at 2pm. Session 2 at Dollis Hill begins at 1.30pm and finishes at 4.30pm.

Do you have to do all three classes?

Yes, we work with the children to train them in all three disciplines to give them an all-round performance experience of all three performing arts.

Are classes only held on a Sunday?

We hold classes on Saturdays (Dollis Hill) and on a Sunday morning (Hendon) but we also offer free workshops for schools to find out more please visit the “workshop” tab

Do you provide reports and certificates at the end of term?

Our teachers are always available to talk to at the end of the session.  If you need more than a few minutes we can arrange a meeting.  However, we pay our teachers to teach on an hourly basis and we feel that this is the best use of their time.

Do you do performances?

We have a street dance troupe called “360 Elite”.  The kids are of mixed ages but of the same ability. They are being trained and conditioned so they are ready to enter into competitions and perform at corporate events. Entry into the troupe is by audition only in the normal dance class.  360 Elite members must attend both dance classes. 

We also have two bands, a pre- teen group called “K’360” and a Junior  group called “Popcorn Kids” These children/teenagers have the use of wireless microphones and have choreographed routines.  Entry into the band is by audition only in the singing class. They are building a repertoire and are ready to perform at Corporate and Public events.

In addition to “360 Elite”, “K’360” and “Popcorn Kids” we do source other events and in preparation for this we take the singers and anyone that would like to sing a solo to a recording studio.  These tracks are then used to enhance the kids performance. You can see an example of this on the home page, scroll down and you will see footage under “Behind The Scenes”

We also get opportunities to perform at high profile charity events and we have taken part in Dance@London Stadium where the kids performed a routine on the pitch at half time between Saracens and Harlequin rugby match with Tokio Myers. In addition we have performed at a charity Gala event to raise funds for Great Ormond Street and various local festivals and summer fetes.

Do you go on school trips?

In the Autumn Term we concentrate on a Christmas performance in the first weekend in December. In the Spring Term we take the kids to the theatre.  Previous visits include, Thriller, Wicked, Matilda, School of Rock, The Lion King and Motown The Musical. These are heavily discounted and cost around £25.00 per ticket.  Tickets are open to friends and family.

In the Summer Term, over the last three years we have been lucky enough to be in a very privileged position of being able to take the children to the X-Factor Judges Auditions, the Boot Camp Auditions, the 6 Chair Challenge and the live shows including Saturday and Sunday of the final auditions including the finals weekend

I also provide opportunities for the kids to see other shows such as Britain’s Got Talent, Catchphrase, Little Big Shots.

The tickets to all of the above are free, read about our recent trips on the “reviews” page on the website.

Is there a waiting area?

At our Saturday branch in Dollis Hill parents drop their children and leave.  At our Sunday branch in Hendon, parents are more than welcome to wait in the reception area. There are also lots of quiet spaces for siblings to concentrate on their homework or for parents to catch up on their emails.

I took my daughter along to the Dollis Hill open day on Saturday, we did not know what to expect but I want to express what an amazing team they are.
Our welcome was enough to know what to expect & that was an amazing morning. It was so organised the teacher worked so hard & very well with the group, the management & admin took the parents for a coffee & welcome chat as we got to see our children have a great time.
When leaving the praise, the feedback, the goodie bags. Thank you so much to you all I went home with a very happy little girl singing what she had learnt we are looking forward to next week!

My daughter has been attending 360 Arts for 7 months. During this time she has gained so much confidence and has come on leaps and bounds with her dancing. The teachers tend to work on the child’s strengths and build on from there. The learning is fun and the children do not feel pressure as they are learning without even realising.
The agent Tilly is fantastic. My daughter has had 5 castings and is put forward for work on a regular basis, this is also a learning curve as my daughter has to prepare and 360 Arts ensure that she is coached for this.
My daughter is happy to get up on a Sunday and get to 360 Arts on time as well as attend various performance opportunities which are regular.
I would definitely recommend 360 Arts

Both my 15 year old daughter and 6 year old son attend 360 arts school. My daughter’s confidence on stage has come on leaps and bounds since starting at 360 and Carol gives the children who attend so many great opportunities to perform publically. From local festivals to Disneyland Paris. The 360 team are friendly and welcoming and as a result, many parents spend their Sundays gathering at 360 while their children are enjoying their classes.

Wow, We joined last term after attending a couple of other well known stage schools but the kids and I just felt like a number and ££ signs. At 360, it was completely different from the minute we walked through the doors, Carol, Tilly and the team were so welcoming. They know all the kids and all the parents. The parents in adult acting made me feel at ease straight away and what fun we have! The teachers are so energetic.& passionate. Fantastic opportunities for the children, like performing at DISNEYLAND PARIS. The agency is amazing! Tilly never stops working and both myself and the kids have had major castings for the likes of Nina Gold- I couldn’t recommend 360 Arts more, it truly is a wonderful school and agency to be part of.
