Lara is 15 and loves to dance. Due to her severe autism and profound language disability it sadly wasn’t possible for her to continue to dance at the same dance school as her sister.
Twinkle Stars has been a truly wonderful experience for her as she has been able to perform on stage at the annual concert wearing her costumes, make-up and having her hair curled & up in a dance hairstyle. She gets to do dance like her sister in an accepting environment.
Before Twinkle Stars it was heartbreaking as Lara wanted to go to her sister’s dance school where she was in the ‘babies’ group for just over one year. At Twinkle Stars the dance routines are devised for the special needs of the children who attend.
The truly great thing is if one of the dancers gets upset all the other children and parents understand. The parents really enjoy catching up with the other parents each week and at special performances. Over the last 4 years Twinkle Stars has been a godsend for our family.
A huge thank you to Justyne and June!
