Dancestars was founded by principal Jennifer Zurek in 2006.
She has been holding classes in halls around Bradford successfully for 10 years.
Jen has been dancing for over 20 years and has been a qualified dance teacher since she was 17 years old. She is qualified with the Imperial Society for Teachers of Dancing and the International Dance Teachers Association in Disco Freestyle, Rock 'n' Roll, Ballroom and Latin American. Jen has competed at a national level in all these forms of dance and has trained many ISTD disco freestyle champions and finalists.
Dancestars is now run by Jen and her partner Paul who's experience and business acumen has helped grow and develop the school in the past year. Paul's main role now is administrative which gives Jen more time to focus on teaching to the highest standard.
Following a 10 year amateur dance career at Dancestars, Ellie Hawes is now a fully qualified Disco Freestyle teacher with the ISTD! She has 10 years competitive experience and is a very welcomed addition to our team.
At Dancestars, we hold classes for all ages and abilities in many styles of dance. We compete in nationwide competitions and offer examinations/qualifications with the ISTD. We produce an annual show and also take part in events such as galas and showcases. All events, exams and competitions are optional, all dancers at Dancestars are welcome to be a part of any event/production that we take part in but nothing is compulsory and we pride ourselves on being a 'pay as you dance' and contract free dance school. There are no monthly fees or subscriptions for classes and pupils can take part in as many or as few classes and events as they wish or are able to.
Learn to dance, get fit, have fun and make friends at DANCESTARS!
