Recently we were booked to capture images of over 200 students from Starcast Performing Arts, Salisbury. The students we were asked to photograph were aged between 5 - 17 years old and had all been entered in to the "Trinity Guildhall Musical Theatre Exams" which took place over the weekend of the 11th and 12 th July 2015, at the Blackledge Theatre, Godolphin School in Salisbury.
Trinity College London offers an unrivalled choice of qualifications for students and teachers of drama and speech subjects, at all levels of experience and ability.
The syllabuses provides a structured framework designed to encourage the progressive development of integrated performance and communication skills over time. Their solo and pair graded exams and diplomas are fully accredited in the UK and recognised internationally in many other countries.
The Starcast Performing Arts Schools students danced, sung and acted as part of their exam performing extracts from “Cats", “Whistle Down the Wind”, “Matilda”, “Bugsy Malone”, “Annie”, “Rent”, “The Jungle Book” and “Half a Sixpence”
"Starcast Performing Arts Schools first opened in 2009 and now has over 280 children and teeangers training in our Acting Classes, Singing Lessons and Dance Classes at our weekly Performing Arts Classes. At Starcast we teach children and teenagers aged 4-18 yrs old. Students are spilt into three classes of similar ages and study each discipline of Dance, Drama and Singing. To read more about the content and the training involved in the three classes please scroll down this page.
ALL abilities are welcome. Starcast offers children and teenagers a chance to simply enjoy learning to act, sing and dance. With opportunites of performing professionally if they wish too.
At our schools we endeavour to build confidence and self esteem, we also teach children skills they can use in everyday life such as communication, focus, creative and presentation skills.
At Starcast Schools we encourage our students to express themselves, to voice their concerns and their ideas in loud, clear and confident voices.
The examiner was impressed with the wonderful costumes, staging and talent of all the performances, awarding every single students a mark of 80% or over.
90% of students were awarded a “Distinction” which is the highest possible mark from "Trinity Guildhall"
Understandably many of the students were feeling nervous and apprehensive, but once they started to perform, the shy quietness and rattling of nerves very quickly vanished - leaving confident focused performers.We felt that this was an exciting and professional event where wonderful memories were made for all involved. These students truly are stars of the future.
