Welcome to Astara!
Here you can find out all you need to know about local Chelmsford based classes in dance and musical theatre for children and adults to enjoy, plus bespoke parties! Please view our video to find out more...
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.
NEW CLASSES FROM JANUARY 2014!
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!
