STARS Elite Training Center
Growing up in a family where both my mother and father were extremely active in youth outreach programs, I developed a love for youth programming. As a homeschool student (K-8th grade) I had the opportunity to train in various arts and athletics programs.

More about this loan
STARS Elite Training Center provides affordable competitive and pre-professional arts and athletics training for youth (ages 2.5+) in the Metro Detroit area. STARS Elite Training Center was originally founded last year after reviewing the consistent success of the competition teams offered by DANCE Inc. (a non-profit organization). It was decided to provide a center that concentrated on youth interested in taking their arts and athletics training to the next level. Our goal is to see youth graduate from our program feeling equipped to shine as STARS (Students Taking Active Roles in Society) in every facet of live, whether it be artistically, academically, athletically or socially. We are proud to say that our STARS shine brightly everywhere they go! They have participated heavily in community service events and projects, they have won multiple NATIONAL titles, they have won thousands of dollars in scholarships to train in dance and the majority are honor roll students!
