STAR (Special Talents in Arts and Recreation) is an interactive experience that allows children and youth with cognitive delays to participate in a tailored program that uses music, movement, and instruments to further benefit their current abilities and strengths in the performing arts. STAR aims to develop a love for music and dance in a safe, stimulating, and fun environment. STAR encourages and allows children to grow and gain confidence, build friendships and find an appreciation for the performing arts.

Classes provide an opportunity to experience personal development and growth. Sessions could include African drumming, learning choreography, playing musical games, and singing a variety of songs. Every session is instructor and participant lead, taking the children’s interests and goals into consideration with each lesson and plan. Parent and care-givers are encouraged to take part with their child. STAR students are encouraged to share their new found skills and abilities with family and friends in a performance at the end of the term.
