Every Monday a group of parents and their children with special needs meet for an hour at the Princeton Recreation Center in Mercer County, West Virginia. They practice dance and baton twirling to classic songs and they call themselves the Superstars, according to WVVA News.

It gives them an opportunity to get out there and shine and show everybody that they can do anything anyone else can do,” Crystal Farmer, the event coordinator, told the outlet. “It lets them shine for a change.”

The group has helped the children work on their flexibility, as well as gain confidence. They’ve even made public appearances at community events and parades.

Check them out in the video below:
