"…wonderful and well-organized dance competition…dancers LOVE their prizes!"

"…my students had the time of their lives…I really liked how they got to do a little dance workshop at the end…it helped to break down…barriers between the dance groups"

"High School High was a huge moment for our junior dance team! They're still riding a high from the chance to dance on the big stage and are adoring the gorgeous trophy-- nice touch! The whole event was top rate, from the MCs to the judges to the venue"

A Field Trip Opportunity to see a great show!


Last year we had the pleasure of having students from Xit'olacw Community School come all the way from Mount Currie (near Whistler) B.C. to be inspired by HSH 2010! 

After watching HSH and taking our workshop they said:

The kids were amazing!!! … (We) have decided to create a Hip Hop club for after school.  We are working on how to hip hoppize their traditional moves. You guys made a difference!!!  I have a sneaking suspicion this is just the beginning of a beautiful relationship between Xit'olacw and A Star!"
A Star Productions has been working closely with school boards and schools for many years and our events have been highly acclaimed to motivate, inspire and educate students.
