Studio Vision Statement:
Starshine Studios, established June 2012, is a boutique dance and tumbling studio that allows students of all ages and abilities to experience and enjoy the many benefits of performance arts.
The desire is to create a program that offers exceptional technical training for all students in an environment that is encouraging, positive, and unpretentious. Performance Arts should be a part of every persons' life, but it is not always the only part of life, for many students. The approach is refreshing and different for our Starshine families
Like all great dancers, we strive for BALANCE for our students, parents, and instructors!
Like all great tumblers, we encourage FLEXIBILITY in our bodies, minds, and instruction approach!
Like all great artists, we develop BEAUTY through movement, attitude, and self expression!
