As a lifelong friend of Justyne’s, it has been a privilege to watch Star Performers and Twinkle Stars grow into the incredibly inspirational dance school that it is today.
Watching these students grow from young children into beautiful adults has been one of the many highlights for me as a part of this team. The love that they all share in dance is something that this studio should be so very proud of.
Justyne has created a fun and safe environment for these kids to shine. The excitement on the student faces as they burst through the doors every Saturday is infectious, you can’t help but smile with them every week. I have watched these students develop the most beautiful lifelong friendships.
Our whole family has been involved in making these concerts come to life over the years. My own 3 girls – Jazzy, Lexy and Crystal have taught dance alongside Justyne for the past 9 years, with Lexy now providing an opportunity for singing lessons. As with the students, my girls always look forward to class on Saturdays.
It has also been an absolute joy of mine to have made the costumes for their annual concerts from very early on. I know firsthand how fabulous these costumes make the students feel, so it means a great deal to me to be a part of their special day.
Without the incredible commitment from Justyne and her team, SPATS would not be the successful organisation that it is today.
