New courses for 2021/22, a one-year foundation and a one-year teaching diploma

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

Our three courses

We offer a three year, performance based course in dance and musical theatre studies which will make students ready to be a professional musical theatre performer. There is also the option to include our one year level 4 diploma in dance teaching which will enable students to train their own pupils or teach at a performing arts school, or in mainstream education as a peripatetic tutor. We also offer a one year foundation course structured for you to gain a place at a top vocational learning establishment.

Intensive teaching experience

Starquest Performers College only takes a small number of entrants each year as 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.

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.

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.


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.
