Astara Open Day - Saturday 6th September 2014  

10 - 1pm

Great Waltham Village Hall 

Based predominantly in the lovely village of Great Waltham, on the outskirts of Chelmsford, children's dance and musical theatre classes were originially set up by professional dancer Charlotte Spooner back in 2005.  Enjoyed so much by pupils, the classes began to grow, adding to it, adult Dancercise classes and children's holiday workshops and parties.  



Charlotte launched Astara in September 2010 and since then she has been able to offer wedding dance choreography for couple's first dances, professional themed gigs and of course the big yearly Astara show, as well as keeping her toes in the performing world herself!


In the Astara mix are t-shirts, hoodies and bags, available for you to order and personalised with the Astara logo and the children's names on.  Our Dancercise ladies can also wear these to class.  You can now order these online: Buy Astara Kit


Please visit our Timetable page for information on Astara classes that are available from January 2014 in and around Chelmsford, Essex.





Not only do we offer services to children aged 3+ but all the way up to adults in their 60's!  We hope you enjoy the Astara site and please contact us for more information on classes, workshop, parties or perhaps an event where you need professional dancers, choreographers or fun entertainers!

Charlotte Spooner - Astara Principal

 Modern ISTD, Tap FDI and National Diploma in Theatre Dance



 Encouraging children to be musical and creative with dance and fun activities at a young age has excellent benefits.  Astara does not put children through examinations however encourages them to gain enough confidence to perform in regular shows, and most importantly enjoy themselves!  Every child that attends an Astara class is important and it is our responsibility to boost their confidence and to forfill their potential,
not just on stage but in their future as individuals 


 Check out the Professional Links page to find out more about Charlotte.
