My name is Justyne and myself and my mother June and I started Twinkle Stars dance school for individuals with special needs in 2001. We started because my daughter Siahne who has Down Syndrome, loves to dance and we wanted somewhere for her to dance with children her own age. Right then and there Twinkle Stars was born.
I have danced all my life and my mother June has taught dance for over 60 years. Our staff have been dancers all of their lives. We have over 190 years + of experience between all of us. We all have experience with working with people with special needs. I and my staff either have children of our own with special needs or work with them on a weekly/daily basis.
The friendships, enjoyment and pleasure and the students get from these classes’ words cannot describe, especially when performing in front of an audience. All students benefit from our classes because their confidence and co-ordination improved immensely after dancing with us for just a short time.
