The Studio was originally known as Starburst Studios and was founded in 2011 by friends Emma and Sara. Emma and Sara grew up dancing together and wanted to open a dancing school that combined the teaching dance, in a fun and friendly environment.
The school was originally based at St John and St Marks Church Hall, Bury and offered lessons in many different genres of dance. The school began with just a handful of students, but the classes proved popular and the classes grew in a short space of time.
By September 2015 Starburst Studios had outgrown their original base and moved to the Freedom Church, Bury.
It was decided that with a new venue and a large new department, it was a good time to re-launch and re-brand. And so ‘The Studio’ was born.
The Studio, now offers tuition across two departments: The Dance Department and the Theatre Department.
The Studio is pleased to offer classes in no fewer than 5 different dance genres and also offers a unique Theatre course.
