Starquest Performers College Starquest Performers College

Starquest Performers College is one of the premier performing arts colleges in the South East providing students with full-time performing arts training.

Our course

We offer a three year Level 4, three year full-time vocational, performance based diploma in classical ballet and musical theatre studies with the option to include a teacher training qualification as well.

Intensive teaching experience

Starquest Performers College only takes a small number of entrants each year because we believe in offering a more intensive teaching experience so our students gain a greater in-depth knowledge of the curriculum with a more hands-on and concentrated pace than the larger establishments. There is no where to hide at the back of our classes.

Experienced teachers and tutors

Our exceptional teaching faulty is made up of regular and guest teachers who come from professional performing backgrounds and also teach at other well-know performing arts colleges, so are well equipped with the skills to help you achieve your goals.

Regulated examinations

All our examinations are regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) which are run in alignment with recognised awarding bodies and the CDMT.

Small class sizes

We make sure you get our full attention as students spend a greater amount of their day-to-day time learning and you are treated as a person and not just a number.


We are a fraction of the price of the big colleges because we know that having to pay out large fees and the prospect of student dept is a daunting prospect so that is why we have made our costs more affordable.

Student employment

We are thrilled about the successes our graduating students are achieving and who now have professional careers in the performing arts industry and are fulfilling their dreams.
