Personal Development

BAM All Stars

BAM Allstars began in 2009, when I was looking for a dance class for my son, Buster, who has Down Syndrome.  Finding there was nothing suitable for his needs, I decided to get something started, and now, 7 years on, here we are - BAM Allstars All Abilities Inc.  We are not Down Syndrome specific - we are open to people of all abilities, and ages 2.5 right through to adults.  It is our mission to continue to grow and develop new creative and performing arts programmes for people with disabilities.  The work we do is a passion and a privilege -
Lisa Murphy, founder
We currently offer weekly "BAM Allstars" dance classes and "Allstars Drama" in a number of locations, with more classes and locations envisioned for the future.  We teach modern dance technique in a fun, welcoming environment, and we provide a social framework and sense of connection which promotes friendships and community involvement. 
We offer a free trial class, so feel free to come along and try us out!  Just call or email to book in.
