HoopStarz Dance Troupe

In 1996, a group of children needed activities to keep them occupied but funds were low.  So the youth group set out to find free fun things for them to do. 

The very first trip was to a free grandparents’ festival, in Fort Washington, PA.  This event gave out free samples of different products to the children; they played interactive games, and had a great time.  That trip was attended by four families and marked the beginning of the Creative Kids Club. That same club now has over 75 families and are still growing!

 

Children/Teens learn to dance using a hula hoop and gain health tips and fitness.

Children in our club must be “creative” in motion in everything they do; this is the purpose of our name.  We strive to bring out the creativity of our members through exposing them to art, craft workshops, recreational activities, and cultural events. 

The Creative Kids Club members are youth (ages 1 to 18) and their families are of all socioeconomic levels, and diverse multicultural religious beliefs.  We offer services to all children.

  • Foster children
  • Youngsters cared for by their grandparents
  • Little ones from single or two parent homes 
  • Developmentally delayed children

We even managed to create an enriching symbiosis between the club’s special needs members and seniors!

We strive to teach our children that being different is what makes you special.  When the developmentally delayed children and youth are included as members of the club you can see their self-esteem rise. 

Senior citizens on limited income have gotten in on the Creative Kids Club action; they enjoy the company of the youth who appreciate having a grandparent figure around. 

The Creative Kids Club’s programs are designed to provide structural developmentally appropriate recreational services through workshops. 

Our motto is “You Provide the Family, We’ll Provide the Fun.
