The Seminole facility is Twinkle Star Dance's first franchise location, and it is owned and operated by Stefanie Valentine, the former owner of Starstruck Dance Studio since 2002. Stefanie has lived in Seminole for the past 35 years and over this time has realized the need for quality, professional dance training, particularly for preschool dancers ages 2-6.
Stefanie said, "I wanted to open a studio that would serve everyone in the area from children to aspiring professionals. Twinkle Star Dance Academy is a place where everyone can feel comfortable to come to study dance, whether you have been dancing for years, are just starting out, are looking to get back into it, or are just looking for a fun alternative to other activities. It's particularly important today, as many of our young children have experienced depression, anxiety and fear caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. They need to be around their friends, doing creative and athletic things in order to feel normal again. Dance is a safe and great way to become part of a loving community. Seminole is a great place to live and play. The residents of the area have a great appreciation for the arts and I hope to add to the art scene in the area by providing quality dance instruction to its residents."
