Future Stars is back! The popular singing, dancing and acting children’s group is run by local mum and qualified teacher, Rebecca Jack. Find out more below…
Future Stars is a new group offering singing, dancing and acting classes for children aged 3 to 12. Open to all abilities, the classes are a great way to build confidence, learn new skills and have lots of fun. They will be working towards a small showcase before they break up for the Summer Holidays.
Future Stars was first established 12 years ago when I came home after completing my teaching degree at Newcastle University. A theatre school in Pateley Bridge was always something I wanted to open, as growing up there was nothing around the dale for me to join where I could learn singing, dancing and acting and so I spent most of my weekends travelling to Leeds and York to theatre schools there.
I first started in the squash courts at Nidderdale Leisure Centre but it soon became too busy for the space and so I moved to some larger premises. The Pateley Bridge school ran on a Saturday morning and soon had over 100 children from around Nidderdale attending. Then followed Skipton, Ripon, Leeds and Otley Future Stars schools.
We ran yearly shows at local theatres and once yearly joined the schools together to perform at The Royal Hall in Harrogate selling over 2000 tickets per show. When expecting my first child I decided that being a new mummy and not having as much time to run the business it was the right time to sell, although this was done with much sadness as teaching Future Stars had brought me so much joy.
I have now had my own family and feel excited to be back with Future Stars, I’m amazed how popular the classes have been so far and proud of how much talent we have in this dale; it’s lovely seeing siblings from the old Future Stars returning and new faces travelling to the classes from Nidderdale, Ripon and Harrogate. I’m very excited to begin this new journey with Future Stars.
