Special Needs Dance PRogram

The Super Stars program has grown to over 25 students and has a waiting list but they’ve grown out of their current space. The studio is located on a second floor have unfortunately had to turn away people in wheel chairs and with other disabilities that really want to join.

Their goal is to get a ground floor building with a larger studio that they can renovate in order to make it more handicap friendly, eventually turning it into a day-hab facility for people with special needs.

See the Super Stars on Alaska news outlets:
