This is an excellent program for the children. My granddaughter has been a part of this program practically from its beginning. I’ve watched her skills and personally flourish in this program. Rising stars has one of the most dedicated directors that I have seen and also a very experienced and dedicated staff. I must say this has been a great experience for my grand daughter as well as myself and I’m so excited to see what is to follow.
