Thanks to the Lee’s Summit North High School Northern Stars, lead by coach Aubrey Shortino, students in the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District extended school year program had the opportunity to dance with the Stars.
The Northern Stars dance team made the joy of dancing accessible to each individual regardless of their ability.
The Stars made each child feel welcomed and actively engaged them in a supportive environment by focusing on their abilities. The dance workshop began with a series of warm ups and stretching.
Students learned several dance steps and by the end of the session performed the routine.
Dancing with the Stars boosted the students’ confidence to express themselves in a meaningful and inspiring way through dance.
