It has been a wonderful journey to discover that my son could enjoy performing to a full house at Sutherland Entertainment Centre. He has participated in three concerts since joining Star Performers and Twinkle Stars Dance Studio.
Lars, who is 11yrs old, has autism, intellectual disability and Anxiety Disorder. The guidance and support he has received at the studio has seen him blossom as a dancer in a way I once thought was not possible. Our whole family appreciate that Lars has found an activity he enjoys attending on a weekly basis and that has so many positives for him. The dance classes promote his independence, confidence, physical and social development.
We are fortunate we live in the Sutherland Shire where the dance studio is located. Over time I have come to realize how unique the studio program is. Justyne and Mrs R, with the help of many volunteers over the years, have devised a teaching model that works well. The studio staff, students, parents and carers now feel like an extended family.
