OUR INCLUSIVE MODEL
Too often, cheer or dance teams that involve students with disabilities create a model where students practice infrequently, wear shorts and t-shirts rather than uniforms, and never receive the experience most students live for: the opportunity to lead their communities under the Friday night lights.
At The Sparkle Effect, we believe that students with and without disabilities share the same need for a genuine
team. That's why our teams involve a long-term commitment, a drive to build skills, and a willingness to work collaboratively with teammates over a period of time. Sparkle Effect teams create an Inclusive, Intensive, and Immersive experience for all of our student participants.
