Welcome to STAR STREET STUDIOS
Hello and welcome to Star Street!!
Star Street intensive sessions are designed to teach young children and young adults the fundamentals of creative performance while being encouraged and supported in a nurturing and enriching environment.
Young minds can feel safe to express themselves and explore their performance potential and creativity.
Such an environment not only builds self esteem and confidence but also improves essential life skills such as consentration, listening, vocabulary, responsibility and appreciation.
If you are looking for choreography, acting and stage Direction, audition preparation for theatre or film, Calgary Performing Arts festival or musical theatre coaching, I can design an intensive lesson plan just for you!
Angela Woodard - Dip.PA/ACTRA - Owner @ Star Street Studios.
People would often say to me 'why don't you start your own studio?'. So, after 25 years of working in the entertainment industry I decided to do just that!
Angela's passion for the performing arts developed at an early age.
After graduating from the Australian Academy of Performing Arts, Angela quickly established herself within the professional community.
Angela has worked in all areas of the Entertainment Industry and has performed throughout Australia, South East Asia, Japan and New Zealand. Credits include - television, theatre, film, cabaret, cover bands, backing vocals, childrens shows, choreography and cruise ships.
With her extensive professional resume, Angela was in demand as a teacher working for the best studios in Sydney such as ED5 International and The Australian College of Entertainment (ACE) as a vocal/dance instructor, acting coach and director. Angela was also a panelist and adjudicator for Showcase National Dance Championships at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast which is operated and owned by Peter Oxford.
Angela has worked extensively in Calgary over the past 15 years offering her knowledge and skills in acting, singing, direction, theatrical production and choreography to community playgroups, schools, young performers and local theatre companies. Angela has been involved in productions such as Hairspray, High School Musical, Chicago, A Christmas Story and Leader of the Pack.
In 2014 Angela had the privilege of working alongside Betty Mitchell Award winning Director Mark Bellamy on Shrek the Musical as choreographer which garnered the coveted CAT Award for Best Production of a Musical.
Angela has just completed another successful year directing and choreographing over 30 vocal students for the 2017 Calgary Performing Arts Festival.
"For the past decade Angela has been a choreographer/director for my Studio, garnering students with Golds/Scholarships/Musical Theatre Showcase appearances and excelling in their auditions both on the Canadian and American side of the borders.I trust her talents implicitly, and know myriads of my students have moved forward in the Arts because of Angela's visionary choreo and exemplary work ethics. I have also been honoured to share the production teams as Musical Director for many shows partnered with Angela's choreo and have been impressed every time. She has the ability to teach, challenge, encourage and fulfill every cast members' dreams of moving forward in the artistic field. For Angela to have the opportunity to teach your children guarantees a springboard to success for them. I cannot recommend her enough" - Patrice Barnes Vocal Studio Calgary.
