Next Steps

Next Steps is programming for individuals that are around 8 years old through around 21 years old

Rock 21

Have you ever dreamed of being in a Rock Band?  DSAGSL and Mozingo Music have teamed up to create a program called Rock 21!

Participants are placed into groups consisting of 4-5 musicians and learn how to work together to create a cohesive band. Each band will perform music based on their musical preferences and at the end of the program, participants will perform as a band at an actual performance venue in our community.

No music skills required for participation  – Ages 10+ welcome (participants will be grouped by age and experience)  – Classes will run for 8 weeks and meet one time per week for 1 ½ hours –  Cost: $100 per student and includes a t-shirt – See application for preferred lesson times.

Educational Advocacy & Awareness Presentations

Raising awareness is part of our mission, and one way we do this is through presentations at schools and community group events.  Presentations can be customized toward a younger audience, such as your child’s fifth grade class, focusing on inclusion, awareness, and acceptance.  DSA can also give presentations intended for school staff members where a student with Down syndrome attends, employees of a business or company that employs individuals with Down syndrome, or any group that wants to learn more.  Contact our Program and Education Coordinator, Andi McCormick, for more information or to schedule a presentation. 314-961.2504 or
