History of "Shining Stars"
The “Shining Stars” Dance Organization was founded by two UC Irvine dance majors with the aims of connecting the underserved youth of Southern California to the arts in higher education. Artistic Director Irishia Hubbard and Administrator Nicole Rivor planned and successfully implemented the first ever dance outreach program of its kind at UC Irvine.

The "Shining Stars" Dance Organization reaches out to children from all areas of Orange County through dance summer programs, which are made with support from UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts. We cultivate creative expression by giving our program participants an outlet for their artistic voices. We spark an interest in dance in higher education and the professional realm through workshops given by UCI students and dance professionals. We engage deeper thinking about critical issues in dance through discussions of body image, improvisation, and cultural dances from around the world. We build long-lasting friendships across the community by giving these children a common connection: a love for dance. Our goal is to provide a unique dance experience that challenges them mentally and physically, but also impacts them emotionally.

About the 2015 Program
The 2015 “Shining Stars” Summer Dance Program hosted 58 young dancers, aged 5-12 years old, on the UC Irvine campus for a free week-long dance outreach program in August 2015. We provided a safe, non-competitive environment for these children to train in the dance techniques of ballet, jazz, hip hop, and tap. We explored deeper concepts in dance such as body image, improvisation, cultural dances, careers in dance, and dance in higher education.

We created lasting bonds with the children, and gave them an environment that cultivates new friendships with their fellow young dancers. We showed them an outlet for creative expression, and we taught the whole community what the arts can do for them.

In order to provide an impact beyond the length of the summer program, we partnered with DanceLova, one of the best dance studios in Orange County, who offered scholarships to train there for free for 5 program participants. These dancers, chosen by the program’s teachers, were able to take two dance classes of their choice per week at DanceLova for several months after our summer program.
