Our vision

Rising star academy was birthed out of the understanding of how important it is for young people to believe in themselves. We want to impart into the next generation the experience we have in performing arts and we want to empower young people to be the best they can possibly be. We don't believe in perfection but we do believe in excellence, and to us excellence is about being the best version of yourself  that you could be. It's not about comparing yourself to other people it's about seeing who you are as an individual and taking that and developing it to a point where you can stand on your own two feet and you can say 'I love myself and I accept myself exactly the way that I am' because there is only one of you in this world. 

Rising star academy provide lessons teaching young people dance, singing and performance. We are about developing their skills in those areas and seeing growth, learning discipline, turning up to class every week and doing these things to encourage young people to be the best that they can be.
