Great work BrightStars North! Amazing to see how confident our dancers were with only 2 classes back after our long COVID break. Thank you to Mandy and Sam for all their efforts finding a venue for classes and getting our COVIDSAFE plans together and to Olivia our awesome teacher. Down Syndrome Tasmania are looking forward to getting all our BrightStars groups back on the dance floor in 2021. ... See MoreSee Less
